Evacuation Planning

Evacuation planning for healthcare facilities, which include both acute and long-term facilities, is a heavily regulated field. It is also a critical area of emergency planning. BCFS EMD has developed, exercised and executed evacuation plans for private facilities, health care systems, and numerous jurisdictions.

BCFS EMD provides critical tools such as the identification of evacuation triggers and considerations, evacuation protocols, and alternate facility planning to safely evacuate patient populations within your system. We can also assist jurisdiction and regional healthcare groups in the development of mutual aid evacuation plans.
