The best time to plan for a disaster is before it happens.

The Emergency Preparedness Toolkit provides practical resources to help clinics take a proactive approach to plan and prepare for emergencies such as fire, flood, and internal threats that could impact operations. These resources also support the regular review of established emergency plans and include practice scenarios.

The Toolkit

The Toolkit consists of an Emergency Preparedness Guidebook and accompanying Workbook that includes:

  • Evacuation Plan Template
  • Shelter-in-Place Plan Template
  • Incident Recovery Plan Template
  • Emergency Drill Scenarios
  • Practice Checklists
