About the Hospital Emergency Preparedness (HEP) Program :

The Colorado Hospital Association’s (CHA) Hospital Emergency Preparedness (HEP) Program provides disaster planning and response training to Colorado hospitals and health systems. Our mission is to provide ongoing support and to enhance the ability of hospitals to build strong emergency preparedness and response systems through the use of training and educational programs, coordination, collaboration and support.

The CHA HEP Program is financed by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Hospital Preparedness Program grant funds awarded by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). CHA’s HEP Program objectives are consistent with those of the federal grant program.

Under the guidance of the Hospital Preparedness Advisory Group (HPAG), the program coordinates and provides multiple training and workshop programs, resources and tools for hospital emergency preparedness coordinators in the state.
