The Regional Emergency Support Plan was activated on Wednesday March 18th and our Regional Coordination Center is on a full virtual activation. Coordination is being done by the ESF-5 (Emergency Management) and ESF-8 (Public Health and Medical Services ) duty officers.  The Capitol Region Incident Management Team (CT-IMT3) has been activated and developed an Incident Action Plan (IAP) which is being reviewed by local public health leads and reissued weekly.

We are utilizing our Regional Distribution Site Standard Operating Guide. Working closely with our partner, the Town of West Hartford and utilizing one of their Public Works facilities, this will allow us to receive stage and store Medical Countermeasures including Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as it becomes available. Photos are from our first distribution on March 25th. Distribution will now occur every Wednesday beginning April 15th.
