Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
This section contains PMs that use data produced by a Redundant Communications Drill (RCD) that is a requirement of the 2019 FOA. For a crosswalk of PMs to the 2017-2022 Health Care Preparedness and Response Capabilities, see
Appendix 3: Crosswalk of Performance Measures to 2017-2022 Health Care Preparedness and Response Capabilities.
Each HCC will conduct an RCD semiannually to test redundant forms of communication among its members. Redundant communications refers to having multiple back-up communication modalities and is imperative in emergency preparedness planning.

The following table lists the data entity—the organizational level at which the data are captured (recipient or HCC)—and PM type for each PM:
The definitions for the PM types are:
