Disaster Operations Handbook Coordinating the Nation's Blood Supply During Disasters and Biological Events.
AABB. (2008). Disaster Operations Handbook: Coordinating the Nation's Blood Supply During Disasters and Biological Events. (Version 2.).
This handbook was created to help blood centers, hospital blood banks, and transfusion services plan for natural and human-caused disasters that can affect the blood supply. It can help the appropriate officials determine the medical need for blood, effectively transport it from one facility to another, and communicate internally and externally about the status of the blood supply.
