SESSION DESCRIPTION

Well beyond the initial response to a disaster, the long-term recovery of the health care service delivery infrastructure requires a broad public-private partnership. This long-term recovery is facilitated primarily through FEMA and in conjunction with HHS’s ESF #8 responsibilities. This town hall session will allow participants an opportunity to engage representatives from federal, state, and local governments, emergency management and public health, and the nonprofit and private sectors to identify services necessary to maintain or improve the affected health care service delivery infrastructure to ensure it meets the long-term physical and behavioral health needs of affected populations. The town hall session will also engage state and local authorities in a dialog around their needs and will be an opportunity for input about how these needs can potentially be addressed through the relevant ESF policies and guidance documents. The discussions will highlight lessons learned from previous disasters, and identify priorities for pre-incident operational plans, with a specific focus on opportunities to leverage programs and activities across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors that support long-term recovery and mass casualty care.
