Christina Crue, Adriel Sanchez, Kristopher Prickett, and Mollie Matthews recently conducted a large, full-scale exercise at Palmetto General Hospital in conjunction with the Hialeah Fire Department in Florida. The drills and exercises tested the hospital’s ability to effectively execute their mass-casualty surge plan.

Disaster preparedness refers to measures taken to prepare for and reduce the effects of disasters — to predict and, where possible, prevent disasters, mitigate their impact on vulnerable populations, and respond to and effectively cope with their consequences. How you plan for a disaster determines how quickly you recover.

As trusted advocates to our clients, we utilize every opportunity to inform, train, and guide them towards the best disaster preparedness plan for when the unexpected happens.
