Located in Orlando, the Central Florida Disaster Medical Coalition (CFDMC) continues to support the efforts of member healthcare facilities to be more resilient to disasters and disruptions such as COVID-19. It also strives to meet the emergency preparedness conditions of participation set forth by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). And, it does so across all nine counties associated with the East Central Florida Domestic Security Task Force, Region 5, which includes: Brevard, Indian River, Lake, Martin, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, St. Lucie, and Volusia.  

In keeping with its mission (and its schedule), CFDMC, in partnership with Tennessee-based BOLDplanning, recently moved forward with its plans to conduct two days of Continuity of Operations (COOP) workshops. Only this time, given the pandemic, they did so safely and remotely through Zoom videoconferencing versus in person like in December 2019.
