The CPHRC convened a tabletop exercise on May 22, 2014 with representatives from Pennsylvania state government agencies to address inter-agency coordination during major disasters that impact the health of children. Participants included representatives from the Pennsylvania Departments of Health, Welfare, and Education, as well as the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, local departments of health, and key healthcare partners such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, Pennsylvania Chapter, the Pennsylvania Association of Community Health Centers, and the Hospital and Healthcare Association of Pennsylvania. The purpose of the exercise was to simulate a major outbreak of MERS-CoV with significant health outcomes and impact on community school and childcare program operations.
