Disaster Resource Centers

0 802

Disaster Resource Centers (DRCs)(link is external) are 13 designated hospitals which receive patients in disaster, distributed throughout Los Angeles. Description from the California Emergency Management Services Agency (EMSA):

The Disaster Resource Center (DRC) Program was developed to assist the healthcare community to work together regionally in LA County on emergency preparedness and response. Thirteen hospitals have been designated within 10 geographic regions in LA County as Disaster Resource Centers (DRCs) to work with their surrounding health care facilities in planning, training, exercises, and facilitating a regional disaster plan. Skilled nursing facilities can participate in this regional planning and utilize their local DRC as a resource when developing their facility’s disaster program. For more information on the DRCs, contact the LA County Disaster Resource Center Program manager at (562) 347-1645.
