The Hospital Disaster Preparedness & Response Compact is a voluntary agreement among Participating Hospitals to provide assistance at the time of a Disaster, not an Emergency, in accordance with relevant emergency management/disaster preparedness plans. The assistance components of this Compact will not take effect until a disaster or an emergency has been declared by local or state authorities or when necessary to save lives or ensure critical patient care continuity in absence of a declared emergency or disaster.

The Compact also describes the relationships among hospitals and is intended to augment, not replace, organizational, community or regional disaster management plans, including trauma region plans.
