Jasper County is participating in the new Service Area 1B Healthcare Coalition which includes Boone, Story, Marshall, Tama, and Poweshiek Counties. The Coalition will include the following disciplines; Emergency Management Agencies (EMA), Emergency Medical Services (EMS), hospitals, and public health agencies. IDPH will award funding to the Coalition under the Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP)/Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP)/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) grant programs.
Jasper County will be sending Josh Harding, EMA’s EMS Program Coordinator, Wendy Hopkins, Skiff Medical Center’s Emergency Preparedness Coordinator, and Becky Pryor, Jasper County Health Department Administrator to participate in the Coalition meetings.
The Jasper County EMA will provide online webinar services via ZOOM Meetings for the Coalition meetings. This will enable members the convenience of participating directly from their offices to save travel time.
