In Arkansas' outlying areas, even a small number of seriously wounded people can qualify as a mass casualty. For this reason, ARcare works closely with both local and state officials to coordinate emergency preparedness plans. Events can range from bioterrorism to natural disasters and industrial accidents.
Due to the geographical regions we service, hospitals may be up to an hour away under ideal circumstances. Our goal is to have our clinics work seamlessly with the local emergency departments and first responders. In the event of an emergency, our staff is prepared to provide a necessary resource to help manage the emergency and still provide routine healthcare for the populations we serve.
