The California Consortium for Urban Indian Health provides planning resources, training and technical assistance to consortia members to support ongoing Emergency Preparedness Planning. CCUIH has developed a Guide to Emergency Preparedness Organizations to assist with these efforts. This guide identifies emergency/disaster preparedness and response organizations that are relevant to CCUIH’s member Urban Indian Health Organizations, including national, statewide, regional, and local organizations.
