Medical Surge Capacity Plan Annex


This is a 172-page PDF document created by the Southeastern District Health Department in Idaho and updated in September 2009. 

The purpose of the Southeast Idaho Regional Surge Capacity Annex for Health and Medical Services is to establish region-wide preparedness for a mass casualty or surge event by a regional response plan developed, maintained, and exercised through committed community partners dedicated to a trained network of professionals to preserve life.

Using this plan, LHDs will be able to describe the process for: sharing resources between response organizations; activating the response plan; operations parameters during the incident between participant institutions and field operations; termination of the incident; recovery; and the process for evaluating performance under the response plan.

This resource is comprehensive, easy to understand, and is applicable to health departments of any size.
