Who We Are

The Tennessee Highland Rim Health Care Coalition is a non-profit emergency preparedness and response organization.  TNHRCC serves as part of Emergency Support Function 8 (ESF-8) in the National Response Framework for emergency management.  The coalition provides training, education, exercise and response assistance to all healthcare entities along with local Public Health agencies, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Emergency Management Agencies (EMA). 

Under Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Appendix Z, also known as the Emergency Preparedness Rule, medical providers are required to participate in emergency planning & exercises.  We help facilities meet these needs by hosting trainings & exercises as well as serving as subject matter experts in healthcare emergency preparedness.
