    HOW PUBLIC HEALTH PLANS, PREPARES AND RESPONDS

    Coordination
    We work with other public health staff, healthcare providers and community agencies to respond effectively to public health emergencies in and around Spokane County.


    Region 9 Healthcare Coalition
    We serve as an emergency preparedness and response resource for eastern Washington (Adams, Asotin, Columbia, Ferry, Garfield, Lincoln, Pend Oreille, Spokane, Stevens & Whitman counties). The coalition consists of hospitals, medical providers and specialty services – all working together to make our health care system more resilient during an emergency.


    The Medical Reserve Corps
    We recruit volunteers to help in times of disaster. The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) exists in thousands of communities nationwide to respond to emergencies and build resiliency. The Eastern Washington chapter of MRC is recruiting, registering and training medical and non-medical volunteers.
