Exercise Materials for 2013


The purpose of this exercise is to provide participants with an opportunity to evaluate current response concepts, plans, and capabilities related to a surge from a food-borne illness in the local community. This year’s 2013 exercise will focus on the coordination of surveillance activities and health system capabilities anticipated when managing a medical surge among community healthcare partners. Key goals for this year’s exercise include:

  • Improve medical surge capacity relative to a food-borne emergency among medical and health partners.

  • Enhance communications across all levels of the medical health system.
  • Improve resource requesting and information sharing across all levels of the medical health system.
  • Activate and utilize Incident Command System (ICS) principles (ICS, Hospital Incident Command System, Standardized Emergency Management System) across all levels of the medical health system.
