Free Webinar: Hospital-Based Incident Command Systems: Small and Rural Hospitals
March 12, 2019 10:00-11:30
Hospital-based incident command systems (e.g., HICS) have been used formally in U.S. hospitals since the late 1970’s as a way to manage incidents, coordinate resources and communications, and collaborate with community-based response agencies. Despite their widespread adoption and use, there is very little published information available on lessons learned, best practices, and real-world adaptation of these systems. This free webinar (the second in our series) is scheduled for March 12, 2019, from 10:00-11:30 AM PT and will feature speakers from small and rural hospitals who have experienced a recent emergency and activated their hospital-based incident command systems. The speakers will provide a brief overview of the incident, describe how they implemented their incident command system, share lessons learned and tools for small and rural hospitals, and discuss how they have incorporated these lessons into their current systems and plans.
