Hazmat Drill Exercise
The Hazmat Drill exercise will take place on Thursday, December 5th at 5:00 p.m. Outside the Emergency Department (ED). During the course of the exercise, the ED will be met by 6-10 patients (role players) coming to the hospital to receive treatment following an exposure incident at a local chemical manufacturing company. In response, these patients will be triaged according to their injuries/ status and taken through simulated decontamination. Majority of the patients presented we will ambulatory with several being non-ambulatory. During the exercise, the hospital command center will also be established. This will allow leadership personnel the opportunity to become familiar with opening and operating the command center in an emergency situation.
