Disaster Healthcare Volunteers Deployment Operations Manual
California Emergency Medical Services Authority. (2016). Disaster Healthcare Volunteers: Deployment Operations Manual.
The purpose of this document is to “provide a common operational framework, including guidelines and checklists, to guide the deployment of disaster healthcare volunteers” across operational areas in California during an emergency requiring medical resources. The deployment concepts in the manual may be helpful to volunteer managers in other states responsible for developing their own respective protocols for deployment of disaster healthcare volunteers.
