Purpose of this Website

This website is a gateway to tools, resources and information on emergency preparedness topics specifically for skilled nursing and post-acute care centers -- also referred to as long term care (LTC) centers. Though designed with a Florida audience in mind, the website’s content is intended to be used by long term care providers in any region. It was established in 2015 as a collaborative project between the Florida Health Care Association (FHCA) and the Emory University's Preparedness and Emergency Response Research Center at the Rollins School of Public Health, with input from the FHCA Emergency Preparedness Council and the Florida Department of Health's Bureau of Preparedness and Response.
