To serve our community through collaboration, coordinated communication, and resource sharing for effective public health emergency management.
The purpose of the Lassen Disaster Preparedness Coalition (LDPC) shall be to provide networking and discussion opportunities, training and exercises, education, planning and resource sharing for our members:
Coalition goals include:
Membership for this group may include any or all of the following:
Each person representing an entity should have intimate knowledge of the entity’s emergency planning efforts and the ability to fully represent the entity’s commitment to emergency planning and response.
Each entity represented will have one vote. An entity is an agency, business, or governing body, which is able to conduct business independently from any other being represented in the Coalition.
Lassen County Public Health, as the State acknowledged HPP entity, will be the lead agency and facilitate collaboration among the coalition members. Each member entity maintains their autonomy, but agrees to collaborate with other member entities on preparedness, response, and recovery activities.
The Coalition will meet as a group quarterly. The meetings will be held on the third Wednesday of November, February, May and August. Locations for the meetings will be distributed.
Additional meetings may be convened as necessary to facilitate the goals of the Coalition.
Meetings between specific members for the purpose of collaborating between two or more entities may be convened by the entities involved. Public Health should be invited to any such meetings to integrate meeting results into other coalition planning activities.
Membership in the coalition is ongoing and does not expire. Member entities may opt out by informing the lead agency either by written or verbal communication. Entities leaving the coalition may be required to return to the coalition any resources provided to them by HPP grant funding.
Each coalition member representative shall serve at the pleasure of the entity they represent.
Changes may be made to the bylaws as required by grant funding source and/or requested by charter members. Any changes made to this charter will be provided to each member for comment prior to the change becoming permanent.
