      Healthcare Emergency Incident Command System (HEICS)
    • Hazard Vulnerability Analysis (HVA)
      • An HVA identifies the events most likely to affect your organization and the probable impact if they do occur
      • Based on identified hazards, the facility should assess how prepared they are to handle them
      • Depending on the evaluated level of preparedness, the facility must take necessary steps to ensure they are prepared to meet the challenges presented by the hazards
    • SOP Examples
      • External Chemical Exposures: i.e. tanker truck crash
      • Natural Hazards: i.e. tornado
      • Public health disaster: i.e. pandemic flu
      • COOP Planning
      • To ensure continuation of operations (COOP) during any disruptive event or situation
      • Facilitates the performance of department/agency/facility essential functions during an emergency or situation that may disrupt normal operations
    • Training and Exercises
      • Identify weaknesses in plan
      • Refine roles and responsibilities
      • Assess adequacy of resources
      • Improve coordination / communication both internally and externally
