Burn Surge Annex
Illinois Department of Public Health. (2016). Burn Surge Annex.
This plan supports the Illinois Department of Public Health Emergency Support Function-8 (ESF-8) Plan, by providing a functional annex for all stakeholders involved in an emergency response within the state of Illinois and/or adjacent states in order to provide appropriate burn medical care to patients in Illinois during a burn mass casualty incident (MCI). It guides the state level response and provides local medical services guidance on the care of burn patients, including patient movement, recommendations for care, and resource allocation during a burn MCI that overwhelms the local health care system.
