VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - You can never be too prepared for an emergency that's why Union Hospital in Terre Haute held a class.


It's for Hoosier healthcare professionals and is called the FEMA Healthcare Sector Emergency Preparedness class.

The program gives health providers the opportunity to develop emergency plans. They're also able to test out those plans and assess risks.

"Our goal here is for this community is to be as prepared as we possibly can if something is to go wrong,” explained Barry Nicoson, EMS, Emergency Preparedness Coordinator. “Union Hospital, Regional Hospital is represented here. As a community we will work really well together. We have to be prepared. This is the first step of many steps that we've been doing to prepare for."

Around 80 health care providers from around the Hoosier state attended today's class.
