March 22, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Tuesday, March 22 – Thursday, March 24, 2016
The 2016 Preparedness, Emergency Response, and Recovery Consortium and Exposition (PERRC) is sponsored by the Chesapeake Health Education Program, Inc (CHEP).
It is the mission of this consortium to bring together healthcare, medical, public health and volunteer emergency management personnel involved in disaster recovery and response efforts representing the governmental, public and private sectors to discuss shared practices in preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery. This forum will provide a hands-on, adult learning environment promoting the sharing of ideas and discussion of best practices.
Subject matter experts present interactive forums, sharing lessons learned during times of response and recovery in emergencies, affecting community and healthcare infrastructure, as well as discuss best practices in planning and mitigation. Focus is placed on coordination and collaboration between the various organizations and stakeholders contributing to disaster preparedness, healthcare response, rescue and evacuation, sheltering in place, and recovery operations.
