The Maryland Emergency Preparedness Network prepared the Emergency Preparedness Resource Guide. Click on the image to access your copy.
The Maryland-National Capital Homecare Association (MNCHA), with support from the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) Office of Preparedness and Response, has designed this handbook so that home care providers can educate and prepare themselves, their patients, and their agencies for a wide-range of disaster situations . It is the hope of MNCHA that home care providers will use this resource as a starting point for developing a specific disaster preparedness plan.
This manual is divided into five main parts:
1 . Assessments
2 . Incident Command System
3 . Business Continuity Planning
4 . Emergency Plan by Event
5 . Resource Contact Information
