Established in September 2006, with the help of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and with funding through the Federal Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP), the California Association of Health Facilities' Disaster Preparedness Program (CAHF-DPP) supports the integration of Long-Term Care (LTC) into disaster planning and response efforts throughout the state of California. 

 

     CAHF's Disaster Preparedness Program is designed to take an all hazards approach and has several aspects: education, facilitation of planning efforts, development of resources and tools, and state-level advocacy for long-term care.

The Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is, for most facilities, a litmus test for their level of emergency preparation. When used in conjunction with Hazard Vulnerability Assessments, the Nursing Home Incident Command System, and Table Top Exercises, the EOP is an irreplaceable tool for long-term care providers to mitigate disasters. Here are listed other toolkits and successful methods pioneered by proactive agencies around the U.S.
