The Healthcare Preparedness Advisory Coalition (HPAC) is made up of government and private agencies in the Southwest Central Region of North Dakota and is lead by local public health. The coalition meets every other month, starting in January, and the group provides inside information, sharing and round table discussion.
The focus of the coalition is to provide support and education for participating entities to make our community better prepared and have the ability to respond to both natural and man-made disasters. Our top priorities are community preparedness, response and recovery. The coalition traditionally works together once a year on an emergency preparedness tabletop exercise focused on those priorities.
