      Resources for Developing an Emergency Operations Plan

      by Bob Armbrister, on Dec 24, 2019 12:00:00 AM

      Last week, I shared a brief checklist for evaluating your hospital emergency operations plan and now, I'm here to share a couple of free resources with you to aid in this process.

      U.S. Department of Health & Human Services ASPR TRACIE
      This website, which is free to join, is a great national resource for templates and more. They also have a feature section titled "Beyond the Response: Experiences from the Field" which details organizations' responses to emergencies.

      California Emergency Medical Services Authority (EMSA)
      This website provides multiple tools and templates to assist you with the emergency preparedness process. You can find editable Word documents that cover topics such as active shooter, infectious disease, missing persons, utility failure, and more.
