Traditionally, hospitals have been perceived as the first line of defense in the event of a disaster. However, the state's community health centers not only play a significant role in maintaining the health of communities, they are well-positioned to participate in a local and statewide emergency response. Today, health centers are more than primary care providers - they are community responders.
