COVID-19 Resources

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.

To request access to EMResource please fill out this  form ,
If you cannot access a Google Form, please email   cdphe_epr_sit@state.co.us
You can also contact Kristen Campos at CDPHE with questions or to request permission changes:  kristen.campos@state.co.us
