Family Assistance Centers

As part of the Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) grant contract in fiscal year 2015-2016, the State Department of Public Health (DPH) tasked local health departments with a deliverable to “participate in the development of regional family assistance protocols as part of Mass Fatality Management planning.”

Local Health Departments/Districts, like the Naugatuck Valley Health District, along with members of the Region 2 and Region 5 ESF #8 coalitions have developed regional Family Assistance Center operations plans and educational material for volunteers. NVHD’s Director of Health, Jessica Stelmaszek, has served as the Joint Region 2 and 5 Family Assistance Center Subcommittee Chair since 2017.
