The Colorado Rural Health Center works with a diverse group of emergency services agencies, providing resources, funding, and equipment to rural health facilities. We operate two main programs to help improve the emergency preparedness and response infrastructure in rural Colorado:
Interoperability Communications Training and PlanningColorado Community Health Network and the Colorado Rural Health Center have partnered with Magnum Solutions, LLC to provide interoperability communications training and planning to Rural Health Clinics and Federally Qualified Health Centers to support mass casualty and disaster response efforts.

Emergency preparedness is planning for natural or man-made disasters--what you, your organization, and your community can and will do in case of an emergency. Within this program is the Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP), which enhances the ability of hospitals and other healthcare entities to prepare for and respond to all hazards and other public health emergencies.

Emergency Medical and Trauma Services
Emergency Medical and Trauma Services (EMTS) is a system of organizations, processes and rules that were developed to assure that people who are seriously injured in Colorado receive rapid and appropriate care. This includes training, funding for training, advisory councils, and agencies that work together to serve Coloradans.
Visit the Emergency Medical and Trauma Services page for a list of web resources, links, and guides about EMTS in Colorado.
