Issue 6 Evacuating Healthcare Facilities
ASPR TRACIE. (2018). Issue 6: Evacuating Healthcare Facilities.
In this issue of The Exchange, we highlight the stories of healthcare coalitions, emergency managers, and local practitioners involved in healthcare facility evacuation due to two types of disasters: wildfires and hurricane-related flooding. We also share lessons learned by the private sector and federal staff who helped oversee the evacuation, movement, and care of dialysis patients in the hope that these lessons can help emergency planners identify gaps in their own evacuation plans.
