Emergency Management Resources


Keeping Communities Safe and Healthy in Times of Crisis

The severe wildfires and hurricanes of 2017 disrupted care to thousands of patients in communities and facilities in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. ASPR-TRACIE has compiled numerous case studies, strategies, and tools used by health care organizations serving patients with acute and chronic needs - particularly for dialysis - during and following recent disasters.  Care for patients in hospitals, clinics, behavioral health and long term care settings, and in their homes and communities was repeatedly challenged, but solutions were repeatedly implemented and quickly adapted to provide care and save lives in highly dynamic circumstances.  Learn More


Welcome to The Joint Commission’s Emergency Management portal.  We are launching this portal to provide a valuable source of information from The Joint Commission enterprise and other healthcare organizations related to the topic of Emergency Management.  Our goal is to create informed and empowered citizens by bringing relevant and timely information and resources to our community.  We hope you find the information helpful!
