Regional Healthcare Emergency Evacuation Tabletop Exercise

Our regional exercise took place on Thursday, April 6. Our focus was an emergency evacuation of a single facility (Tier 1) that escalated into an emergency evacuation of multiple facilities (Tier 2). Attendees were be briefed on disaster tiers and the 2015 Wisconsin Hospital Surge Guidelines. Attendees will receive a generic evacuation template that may be tailored to meet the needs of their organization. Participants who wish to conduct their own in-house functional or full-scale exercise may do so at their convenience. We ask that lessons learned for in-house exercises be submitted to our exercise facilitator by Friday, June 2 to be integrated into our regional after action report and improvement plan.
