Regional ICS Drill a Success
May 3, 2010
The Incident Command System (ICS) has played an important role in the response to H1N1 nationwide. This tactic helped a local health department in implementing an efficient vaccine clinic while reinforcing community partnerships.
The clinic lasted three hours, and 100 citizens were vaccinated, with the help of 27 participants. MRC volunteer vaccinators and assistants from LLHD, Northeast District Health Department, and the Uncas Health Department attended the clinic.
"The drill was a success because it allowed the LLHD MRC volunteers to observe ICS in action and meet regional partners to see what different best practices were being used,” said MRC Coordinator, Kris Magnussen, RN-BC, MSN, LLHD. The LLHD MRC plans to conduct and participate in future exercises in the region.
