Caduceus Shield Exercise Initiative
The Operational Maneuvers – A Hospital Evacuation Tabletop Exercise is part of the national Caduceus Shield Exercise Initiative.
It is late July and local citizens have been complacent in their hurricane preparedness activities because this year’s hurricane season has not even seen its first tropical storm. Families are making their last minute plans for their summer vacations 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 number and severity of hurricanes within the next few weeks.
By early August residents, business owners and government officials begin to follow the projected path of the season’s first tropical storm. Soon the storm strengthens into Hurricane Adam as it continues its forward movement.
The National Hurricane Center continues to monitor the storm via satellite and Hurricane Hunter planes as it continues to intensify.
Your hospital can participate in this exercise for $600.
