KEYS HRC is a network of acute and sub-acute care hospitals, county emergency response agencies, and community disaster partners. The Coalition collaborates on planning, training and exercising for an area-wide health and/or medical response to a disaster or incident.

After the events of 9/11,  and more recently, hurricanes in Monroe County, the County enacted a mock drill to determine what the capabilities and gaps were in the community’s emergency response system. The drill brought together three hospitals, municipal and county law enforcement, EMS/fire rescue, HAZMAT, The American Red Cross, and other responders. The outcome revealed that individual agencies could not act alone to effectively address a disaster or public health emergency. Thus, the Keys Health Ready Coalition was formed.

Operationally, KEYS HRC has a formal structure, with bylaws, specific strategic planning goals, regular meetings and scheduled activities that are planned and managed.
