Who we are...
...a collaborative network of healthcare organizations and their public and private response partners. We work together to assist Emergency Management and Health and Medical Emergency Support Function 8 (ESF8) with preparedness, response and recovery activities related to healthcare disaster operations. The Coalition helps improve medical surge capability and capacity and enhances a community’s health system preparedness for disasters and public health emergencies. Creation of these Coalitions is a national priority and funding for them is provided by the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR).
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 ESF8 (Health and Medical) with preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation activities related to healthcare disaster operations.
Our goal is for all healthcare partners and emergency preparedness and response partners to join the Coalition! Please click the link at the bottom of this page to join the Central Florida Disaster Medical Coalition.
