Being a READY Rural Hospital
Mayers Memorial Healthcare District

Oct 4, 2023  |  Disaster Planning for California Hospitals


Rural communities face many challenges and resource limitations. When an emergency situation arises, it is not the time to scramble to find the lacking resources. Ideally resource needs have been identified and MOUs are put in place, ready to access if needed. Rural hospitals are a hub of the community and can lead the way in emergency preparedness collaboration and organization by establishing relationships, contacts and MOUs with business, schools, and community organizations.
