The Oregon Office of Rural Health (ORH) is pleased to announce an Emergency Preparedness (EP) training program for Rural Health Clinics (RHCs). The trainings, delivered by staff from The Compliance Team, will provide overview and resources targeted to helping Oregon’s RHCs comply with Federal, State and local EP requirements, as outlined in Section 491.12 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Participants will work to:

Participants can expect to:

Learning will occur over the course of two approximately one-hour “lunch and learn” style webinar sessions. Participation is free and all RHC personnel are encouraged to join.
