Disaster Resources

Arkansas hospitals play a key role in disaster readiness throughout our state and country. Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and subsequent scares, hospitals have stepped up readiness efforts in order to become better prepared in responding to not only traditional and weather-related disaster threats, but an even more real potential of terrorist attacks, including the use of chemical, biological, or nuclear agents.

As vital community resources, hospitals must be among the best prepared, along with police, fire, rescue, and other public safety services.

The Arkansas Hospital Association serves as a liaison between hospitals and the Arkansas Department of Health, which manages grant funding for disaster preparedness, the American Hospital Association and other federal and state agencies.
