The Preparedness Section is responsible for maintaining emergency response plans and activating Health and Medical Area Command (HMAC) to direct, coordinate, and mobilize health and medical resources, information, and personnel during emergencies and disasters. We also rely on other preparedness professionals and organizations, including the Northwest Healthcare Response Network (NWHRN) and city and county emergency managers.
