Applying Lessons Learned to Hospital Evacuation
ASPR TRACIE. (2020). Applying Lessons Learned to Hospital Evacuation.
In 2018, ASPR TRACIE interviewed staff from Kaiser Permanente Hospital Santa Rosa in California (including Dr. Joshua Weil, the incident commander at the time) who shared their experiences evacuating the facility during the 2017 wildfires that decimated many employees’ homes in addition to thousands of acres. For this issue, Dr. Weil and Dr. Susan Fitzgerald shared how they had incorporated lessons learned from the 2017 wildfires into plans they executed in 2019 when faced with a similar scenario.
