TidalHealth is committed to the welfare of the community, its patients, staff and visitors.
We are committed to keeping our community informed about the latest public health concerns and emergency preparedness. Public health affects everyone and the responsibility for emergency preparedness rests with each individual.
The Emergency Preparedness Plan is designed to maximize human survival and preservation of property, minimize danger, restore normal working conditions, and assure responsive communications within the organization, surrounding neighborhoods, our towns, state agencies such as the State Police, the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), and the state’s Emergency Management Agencies. Our plan is fashioned in accordance with the laws, regulations, and policies that govern emergency preparedness and reflects the most current thinking in this area.
TidalHealth, like most health systems in the United States, prepare to protect our patients, employees and community against contagious health conditions. We regularly perform emergency preparedness drills with scenarios that include diseases that are spread through body fluids like Ebola.
