This report summarizes findings from several Continuum Emergency Management Committee subcommittee meetings on comprehensive hospital evacuation planning. The subcommittee developed three task forces (facility task force, a patient care task force, and a support service task force) and each one created formal recommendations. The larger committee shares select recommendations in this document and explains how they can be applied for use by all hospitals in their evacuation planning.
