Emergency Preparedness for Long Term Care

November 14, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST

From storms to droughts, wildfires to floods or accidents to epidemics, disasters occur nearly every day in the United States, and the frequency is increasing. How many people are hurt or even killed by such disasters depends on the severity of the event, but also on a health care system’s ability to respond to ensure the ill and injured are treated effectively and efficiently. This webinar will provide information about how to support, coordinate and manage health care system emergency preparedness, including mitigation, response and recovery for hazard emergencies and disasters.

Target Audience: This presentation is applicable to all health care settings but will have a long-term care emphasis.

Presenter: Chris Crabtree, DrPH, CEM, CEDP
Chris Crabtree is the director of Hawaii Healthcare Emergency Management and team commander for Kalawao Rescue, a deployable, non-federal, all-hazards disaster medical response and recovery team that is capable of activating and deploying a 10-person medical strike team within two to four hours of request. Chris is dedicated to strengthening health care system resiliency and committed to better preparing health care organizations and facilities in mitigating against, responding to and recovering from major emergencies and disasters through sustainable means.
