In 2007, Long Beach Medical Center, along with Miller Children’s, was awarded a National Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program (NBHPP) grant. If a natural or manmade disaster were to occur, that impacted a large number of individuals, Long Beach Medical Center would lead in the coordination of care in the area in response to the incident.
The Disaster Resource Center (DRC):
The Disaster Resource Center (DRC) concept promotes, plans and mitigates cooperation and collaboration with Los Angeles County agencies, hospitals and other health care entities with LA County EMS Agency as a conduit. The goal as a DRC is to take an “all hazards” approach to disaster preparedness, with an emphasis on terrorism preparedness, including bioterrorism equipment and training. There are 13 other DRC’s in Los Angeles County.
