NCR Oxygen Management in Disasters Workgroup

The North Central Region Healthcare Coalition is bringing together key partners to address a critical gap in the healthcare and medical system related to oxygen supplies during a disaster.

The NCR HCC is creating a multi-disciplinary group of regional partners to address this gap at all levels, and to provide the region with recommendations and resources aimed at mitigating the impact(s) that disasters can have on the access to, and supply of, oxygen across the healthcare continuum and throughout the community.
