Hurricane Michael - 2018

When tragedies occur, members, non-members and other organizations frequently contact ACEP to determine what role or action ACEP is taking to provide relief or coordinate assistance.

ACEP is a non-profit, professional medical association that is the leading advocate for emergency physicians, their patients and the public.
ACEP is not a disaster relief organization and does not coordinate physician relief efforts.

However, we do offer guidance for health care professionals interested in assisting disaster medical response.
