We aspire to provide Canada with an independent and comprehensive source of the best ideas, evidence, and knowledge to advance emergency preparedness, and the delivery of clinical care in disasters
We aim to serve as a collaborative hub for first receivers to enable them to improve the preparedness of health care facilities by:
Interfacing efficiently with allies (including first responders, public health and other stakeholders);
Improving knowledge, skills and abilities in emergency management and decision making;
Providing and sharing expertise and resources;
Promoting research and knowledge translation in emergency preparedness
Emergency Preparedness in health care terms is the readiness for unexpected lethal or harmful events requiring more resources than the local health care infrastructure can provide.
