ECHO Minnesota can help your organization

If you’re struggling to reach diverse communities, ECHO Minnesota can help. Check out their cultural training toolkits, get information about various cultural groups represented in Minnesota that you can circulate to your staff and personnel. Toolkits can also help you integrate diverse communities into your emergency preparedness planning.
ECHO Minnesota is good in an emergency
It’s what they do! In emergency situations, ECHO Minnesota is there to help the community and officials work together and stay safe. They offer a health and safety crisis line where community members can call for information and instructions on how to stay safe and where to get more information. They also spread messages on television, radio and online.
ECHO Minnesota has a comprehensive emergency operations plan that officials can activate during a crisis to translate, produce and distribute critical information quickly and effectively.
The work ECHO Minnesota does helps keep our community safe and healthy during emergencies. We support that.
