Real World Event After Action Template

This “Real-World” after-action report template is a modified Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program AAR template. This template was developed by the Coalition for healthcare facilities (non-hospital) to use to evaluate the effectiveness of healthcare facility plans that have been activated as a result of a real-world event (not an exercise). The template provides direction on what should be included within each section of the document.

The template has the following sections to address:

  • Real World Event Overview
  • Analysis of Plan Activation (includes a summary of Plan performance)
  • Strengths and Areas for Improvement
  • Improvement Plan Matrix (highlights issue areas and the corrective action to be taken)
