Join us for our March 5 meeting, see the agenda for details:

Recording available until September 6, 2020:


See separate trainings list for upcoming trainings.

Please monitor WISCOM HRCRD5 open/clr at all times.  WISCOM should be used to verbalize EMResource/WI Trac alerts for redundancy.

Please remember to submit the MATCH survey for all hospital-based exercises and real events using this link:

We had an in-depth discussion about COVID-19 Preparedness and Response.  WI DHS created a survey to assess the PPE situation for all partners in the state, and this survey data is being shared with federal partners to assess the need to mobilize stockpiles, so please fill out the survey emailed out by Jennifer.  Please find the one best representative in your facility to respond to the survey to avoid conflicting duplicate survey responses.  Feel free to fill out the survey multiple times if the PPE situation in your organization changes.  The SCWIHERC COVID-19 briefings will continue weekly until further notice.

The next portion of the meeting was dedicated to the Coalition Surge Test After Action Review and Facilitated Discussion.  This information can be found in the after action report when available.

The Hospital and Medical Surge workgroups met in the afternoon and discussed surge planning in response to respiratory virus season and COVID-19, as well as MCI readiness.  Three resources were shared by Jennifer:

CDC Mass Casualty Predictor Model

Trauma centers: Prepare for mass casualty incidents by understanding the 10 predictable stages of disruption

Strategies for Improved Hospital Response to Mass Casualty Incidents
