Great Basin Primary Care Association

Great Basin Primary Care Association (GBPCA) is a federally funded non-profit membership organization that was founded in 1995.

Health Centers / Emergency Management

Emergency Management identifies the activities and roles that health centers facilitate during a time of crisis. These activities and roles are pre-defined and collectively represent an organizational emergency plan (EP).
Emergency Management utilizes the seven areas of business continuity as defined by the National Association of Community Health Centers.

The role of health centers in responding to crisis (including disaster, emergency, or pandemic) is to support first-responders (Police, Fire, Paramedics) via coordination of:

  • Community Needs Assessment.
  • Communication to board members and staff of community health centers.
  • First-Responder Requests for Assistance (Facility Usage, etc.).
  • Primary Care Services.

Great Basin Primary Care Association collaborates with the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) to provide trainings related to emergency preparedness and planning.
