Iowa Preparedness Initiatives

Preparedness month activities at the Upper Midwest Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Center, part of the University of Iowa School of Public Health, includes the release of an exciting new toolkit for healthcare coalitions. This toolkit is a collection of high quality education and training resources for healthcare coalitions. Content is organized by each of the 15 public health emergency preparedness capabilities. Each section includes a catalog of online trainings, resources, drills, and exercises. Content is drawn from the course catalog of the Upper Midwest Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Center (UMPERLC) as well as from other the other PERLCs around the country, the Advanced Practice Centers, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Homeland Security and Emergency Management, FEMA, and other critical preparedness agencies.
