The ECCC seeks to strengthen the day to day emergency care system so that the nation is better prepared in times of crisis. The ECCC focuses federal efforts on improvements to the delivery of daily emergency care that are the foundation of response to disasters and public health emergencies and is an essential part of Office of Policy and Planning, and the Division of Health System Policy.
