Minnesota Department of Health. (2019). Medical Surge.
The Minnesota Department of Health developed multiple resources to support planning for and conducting evacuations including long-term care and hospital evacuation planning templates; templates to train staff in sheltering, relocation, and evacuation by grouping them into one of three categories (all staff, operations, and command staff) with competencies by group; as well as algorithms to assist facility decision making during a potential evacuation.
