HCA's Emergency Preparedness Website
HCA's emergency preparedness website, www.homecareprepare.org, contains resources to assist home care providers in emergency preparedness planning, including a link to our Home Care Emergency Preparedness Manual. This legislative session, HCA is supporting a bill introduced in both the Senate and Assembly that would extend 'essential personnel' status to home care staff during declared emergencies.
