Other Training & Exercise Providers
Conducting exercises is a vital component of every emergency preparedness program
The Healthcare Coalition of Rhode Island (HCRI) is aware that its members and partners need to exercise their plans and procedures to prepare for disasters, both from a practical standpoint and to meet certain regulatory requirements.
To help members to meet this need, HCRI will provide its members an exercise toolkit in the Spring 2023 that each organization can use to plan and execute individual facility-based functional exercises. The toolkit will contain instructions, tips, and a facilitation guide to conduct the exercise, a selection of scenarios members can choose from, and an after-action report template for members to document their organizations’ strengths and areas for improvement noted in the exercise, as well as to outline the implementation of corrective actions. This will better prepare members to conduct their own exercises in alignment with HCRI’s established emergency response processes
