Emergency response professionals attend training conference in Anchorage

The Hale Borealis Forum, held October 23-25 in Anchorage, brought together nearly 500 professionals from public health, prehospital care, trauma centers, hospitals, law enforcement and local, state and tribal emergency management to focus on health and medical emergency preparedness, response and recovery. The theme, “Strengthening Whole Community Partnerships to Improve Healthcare Resiliency,” reflects a multi-agency, collaborative approach to health preparedness. Experts shared lessons from real life events such as the Las Vegas shooting, Hurricane Maria and the California wildfires while labs provided continuing education credit for emergency responders in lifesaving skills. This training conference, hosted by the State of Alaska, Section of Rural and Community Health Systems, will be held next in fall 2020. For information: haleborealis.com.
