Disasters and emergencies can affect anyone at any time.

It is important that every individual, family, business, and organization are prepared to be self-sustaining should an emergency occur. This includes being prepared in the home, workplace, and vehicle.

Immediately after an emergency, essential services may be unavailable and local disaster relief and first responders may not be able to reach you. It is important to be prepared to be self-sustaining for the first 72 hours following an emergency.

Emergency Preparedness Programs


Colorado Medicaid members who utilize life-sustaining medical equipment are invited to apply for a battery backup power system to power their devices during an emergency. Applications are now open!

Those who live in a group home or alternate care facility are not eligible, as these facilities already provide backup power.

Apply online here.
