COVID Resources
We understand that these are challenging times, and there is a lot of information out there. We want to remind everyone that the RETAC is a resource and that you can reach out to us if you need help or have questions. Below is a list of common COVID-related information, but please reach out if you have additional questions.

EMResource is a free platform provided by the State that is primarily used to identify hospital status. There is also an EMS/Fire view that might be helpful to use during this time. In addition, there is a COVID-19 view to show who has PPE, vents, staffing, and also lists EOC and nursing supervisor phone numbers. 

To ensure all information is correct, both Hospitals and EMS Agencies should update regularly.
