Review the “Anytown USA” simulation in the Class Resources. The community hospital sits in the heart of the downtown area. In an effort to keep the hospital functioning during a major emergency or disaster, it is important to identify predesignated locations for triage areas and mobile hospitals. These predesignated locations should be listed in the community’s EOP Public Health Annex. List three to five locations that can be used for the function of triage and mass care in Anytown. Justify your choices and explain how those locations could be prepared to fulfill that function during an incident.
Conduct a brief hazard analysis of your own region. Which hazard constitutes the biggest threat to public health in your area? Do you think appropriate mitigation measures are in place to minimize the threat? How well do you think your community is prepared to respond to the threat if disaster were to strike?
