Emergency Preparedness & Planning


It is the vision of the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) to be the nation's leader in helping individuals, families, and communities to be safe and independent.  It is also the intent of CDHS to implement procedures that provide effective management and coordination of emergency operations and the continuity of operations within the statutory authority of the Department.


CDHS has developed several plans at the Office and Team Levels for Pandemic and Continuity of Operations.  In addition, each facility has an Emergency Operations Plan and/or Evacuation Plan.  Contact your Facility Manager or Supervisor for more information.


CDHS also acknowledges that employees cannot support the CDHS mission if our families are not safe.  The Ready Colorado website has information and checklists available to develop family plans at http://www.readycolorado.com/
