Caduceus Shield Exercise Initiative

The Hurricane Doc – A Hospital Sustainability Tabletop Exercise is part of the national Caduceus Shield Exercise Initiative.

Exercise Scenario

It is mid-August and local residents have been complacent in their hurricane preparedness activities because this year’s hurricane season has only produced several tropical storms and a few minor hurricanes, none of which have made landfall. Families are making their last minute vacation plans for the up-coming Labor Day Weekend while local business owners and government agencies are thinking that the hurricane season could be very inconsequential. However weather forecasters are predicting a major change in the atmosphere that could see a sharp increase in the severity of hurricanes within the next few weeks.

By late August area residents, business owners and government officials begin to follow the projected path of another tropical storm.
