LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – From April 14 through April 18, the Lake County Health Services Department and community partners attended the 2019 FEMA Healthcare Coalition Response Leadership, or HRCL, course in Anniston, Alabama.

The HCRL course is based on guidelines from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control, and Prevention Public Health Preparedness Capabilities, as well as best practices for health care coalition building, preparedness, response and recovery.

Attendees received instruction on the development of indicators, triggers, and tactics for proactive health coalition planning.

In addition, the course provided techniques and instruction for health care coalition response and recovery leadership, during an emergency.

Lake County health leaders also gained practical experience in healthcare coalition leadership response, through a series of progressive exercises designed to emulate realistic community and regional public health and medical emergencies.

The Lake County Health Services Department and community partners learned the latest emergency planning procedures, and received valuable information to ensure our county’s safety during an actual emergency.
