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.

Have you completed your Hazard Vulnerability Assessment (HVA) for 2020 for your facility yet? This is one of two meetings that long-term care providers are strongly urged to attend at their local DRC hospitals. Attending the in-person HVA meeting will help fulfill E-tag 0006, “Annual Updates to the HVA / EOP,” as well as E-tag 0009, “Collaboration with Local / County Emergency Response Authorities.” Check the upcoming dates below and contact your DRC coordinators to let them know you are planning to attend! **This is very important so they can reserve a large enough meeting space!**
