Enable Federal, State, Tribal, Regional, and local governmental agencies, and health care providers to respond to every emergency in a timely, collaborative, organized, and effective manner.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Survey and Certification Group (SCG) has developed this site to provide useful information to CMS Central and Regional Offices, State Survey Agencies (SAs), their State, Tribal, Regional, and local emergency partners, and health care providers, for developing effective and robust emergency plans and responses. This Web site provides information and tools, utilizing an "all hazards" approach for disruptive events such as:
- Pandemic flu (e.g., H1N1 influenza virus)
- Power outages
