A primary barrier to building a disaster healthcare capability is the lack of understanding among stakeholders of each other’s needs and capabilities. The purpose of the CDPH course, Healthcare Response for CBRNE Mass Casualties, is to help reduce the gaps and silos that inhibit community healthcare resilience.

Provide Critical Information

Gain insight into the kinds of information hospitals need to make critical healthcare and facility decisions during a CBRNE event. Then find out how you can help them get the information they need, efficiently and effectively.

Help Keep Hospitals Safe

What is your role in helping secure hospital facilities to keep first receivers and patients safe and free of  contamination? Find out how you can help keep hospitals safe.

Allocate Resources Effectively

Understanding the supplies and resources hospitals will need to sustain capacity for the duration of a CBRNE event will enhance pre-event resource planning and help optimize resource allocation during an emergency event.

Use Hospital Capabilities

From laboratory testing to symptom identification, discover ways that hospitals can support emergency management and first response teams with vital information.

Support Hospital Preparedness

Coordinated, community-wide pre-event planning is the key to successful CBRNE response and disaster resilience. This course provides joint preparedness guidance.

Partner for Resilience

Disaster resilience  requires strong emergency response partnerships. This provides a foundation for building healthcare coaltions for collaborative emergency response.

What People Are Saying

This course does a nice job of weaving in all hazards CBRN response concepts for healthcare and the California Medical and Health Emergency Operations Manual (EOM) response structure at the local, regional, and state levels. When you work in healthcare, it is valuable to know that there is a robust support structure in place to support medical and health responders.
