What would happen if your local hospital’s communications systems were overwhelmed by:
- Damage to its electrical connection
- Damage to its telephone system
- Overwhelming patients due to
- Major earthquake
- Chemical explosion
- Massive wildfires
- Normal communications were disrupted resulting in confusion
This is why OCHEART exists. Our Team of volunteers works with hospital administration and the Orange County Health Care Agency to plan communications we will use during an emergency or disaster.
OCHEART members are deployed to provide support with communications over radio frequencies that are not tied to the usual hospital communications networks until such time as normal communications could be restored.
