Preparing, Training, Exercising and Responding Together

On March 14, 2019, the Nevada County Public Health Department's Emergency Preparedness Program, in conjunction with the Office of Emergency Services, facilitated a morning of training and a tabletop exercise. There were 71 individual participants representing 35 community agencies and County departments. This number included local, regional and state staff from hospitals, clinics, long-term care facilities, other allied healthcare facilities, transportation agencies, law enforcement, fire departments, emergency medical services, and several County departments. The exercise was a combination of a wildland fire evacuation and a hazardous chemical release. The exercise simulated the workings of the PH Department Operations Center (DOC), the County Emergency Operations Center (EOC), the Regional Disaster Medical Health Coordination program, the CA Department of Public Health, and Cal OES. The goal was to prepare resource requests and practice filling those requests from the local level all the way through the statewide system. 

This opportunity to work together to prepare for a coordinated response proved to be a valuable time for networking and helped to identify and address gaps in our emergency response plans.
