On February 7, 2023, a 10-alarm fire at Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital (Massachusetts) resulted in the total evacuation of the hospital, continued closure, and extensive recovery efforts. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response Technical Resources, Assistance Center, and Information Exchange (ASPR TRACIE) invites you to this webinar to learn from hospital representatives about their experience navigating a complete utilities failure during a fire emergency. They will discuss their successes and challenges of patient movement, transfers, and discharge; maintaining patient and staff safety; managing cascading events; collaboration with local/state/regional partners; and how lessons learned impact facility plans, protocols, and training.
