The CFDMC will facilitate healthcare and other partners in working together collaboratively to build, strengthen and sustain a healthcare preparedness and response system within Central Florida and to assist Emergency Management and ESF 8 (Health and Medical) with preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation activities related to healthcare disaster operations.

There are many ways to get involved! We’re looking for volunteers for our Family Assistance team, Disaster Behavioral Health, and our Central Florida Disaster Medical Team (CFDMT), a group of volunteer responders whose purpose is to stabilize, treat, and transfer, as appropriate, patients during a disaster or during a community-sponsored event, such as air shows, marathons, and concerts. These are your opportunity to be part of a valued teams during events and emergency situations, when it truly matters most.
As a nonprofit organization, funding to stay operational is always at the top of our list. Your generous donation ensures that the Coalition will be there to prepare and support the healthcare system in disasters.
