The mission of Alternate Medical Care Setup is to meet the
Special Medical Needs of those
individuals who are either homebound or in assisted living facilities in times
of disaster. This division will provide pre-disaster planning assistance,
an emergency response team to coordinate disaster response, and the equipment,
supplies, and personnel to establish a Special Medical Needs Shelter. This
division works closely with the Medical and Logistics Divisions to provide
the care required in a Alternate Medical Care Facility.
