Tri-Cities Medical Response System (TRIMRS)
Healthcare coalitions were established across the United States to bring health care organizations and their response partners together to jointly prepare for disasters and public health emergencies that threaten to overwhelm the capability and the capacity of the medical community to respond. They are funded by the Department of Health and Human Services through the National Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program.
Healthcare coalitions consist of healthcare organizations, health departments, emergency managers, medical response, and public safety partners that all have one goal. That goal is to ensure that their communities are safer, healthier, and more resilient.
Loup Basin Public Health Department is part of the Tri-Cities Medical Response System (TRIMRS) Healthcare Coalition. TRIMRS is one of seven healthcare coalitions in Nebraska. The TRIMRS region covers 23 counties, over 2,500 square miles, four health departments, 18 hospitals, 25 emergency managers, and 500,000 residents.
