General Membership Meetings

Due to REDi HCC involvement in the COVID-19 response, REDi HCC General Meetings have been temporarily suspended. General Meetings will resume once response needs begin to decline. 

One of the best ways to get involved with the Coalition is to attend our General Meetings. Open to all Healthcare Coalition partners, these meetings bring together healthcare, public health and emergency management partners from across the region to network, plan, and share resources related to healthcare emergency preparedness and response. The REDi Healthcare Coalition hosts General Meetings quarterly in each catchment area hub (Tri-Cities, Wenatchee and Spokane).

RSVP is requested for each meeting. To view upcoming meetings and to RSVP, click here. Past meeting agendas, minutes and sign-in sheets can be found here in our Resource Library.

Coalition Membership

Coalition member organizations provide expertise and receive the benefit of other’s experience to build regional response capabilities together. Membership can be held by any healthcare, emergency management, public health, or EMS organization supporting the 19 counties and four tribal nations of eastern Washington. Membership is specific to the agency, not the individual person, and may be met through the combined contributions of multiple staff members who represent their agency.

By becoming a member of the Coalition, an organization is committing to strengthening regional response through timely information sharing, submitting lessons learned from exercises and incidents across the region, and engaging in the collaborative work needed to build regional response capabilities. 

For membership details, please read our Membership Definition Document or contact Victoria Warthen, Membership Coordinator, at 509-324-1694 or vwarthen@srhd.org. 


Meetings

For more opportunities to share and receive response related updates, please view the REDi HCC Eventbrite page. Our events page is regularly updated with information regarding Coalition Connections, Weekly Regional COVID meetings, and other relevant REDi meetings. 

Given the increasing number of cases of COVID-19 in pockets of eastern Washington, REDi HCC staff will be facilitating a weekly regional virtual meeting where leads from local health jurisdictions (public health), Emergency Management, EMS, and healthcare will gather virtually to provide updates regarding COVID-19. Partners will be asked to report out by organization type and county. 

During these meetings REDi staff will provide an update from the region then facilitate an open-ended period for partners to provide updates and ask questions. RSVP here for the Weekly Regional COVID Updates meetings.
