Disaster & Healthcare Preparedness

Encouraging Collaboration in Addressing Regional Healthcare Challenges

Our Foundation strengthens regional healthcare through partnership with the Upper Cumberland Healthcare Preparedness Coalition, a group that works closely with regional EMS services to encourage collaboration in addressing regional healthcare challenges and working toward solutions to improve the health and prosperity of the Upper Cumberland.

The mission of the Upper Cumberland Healthcare Preparedness Coalition is to assist the healthcare community and other emergency response agencies to jointly prepare for, respond to, and recover from disaster events. The coalition supports collaborative planning and information sharing among a broad range of healthcare partners in order to protect, promote and improve the health and prosperity of people in the Upper Cumberland community and Tennessee.

The Foundation also partners with a number of organizations to enable and support response to disasters throughout the Upper Cumberland.
