CMS Provider/Supplier Tabletop Exercise: Overland Flooding

The Region 3 Healthcare Coalition Alliance is pleased to provide a series of in-person tabletop exercises for member organizations. These exercises are being conducted across the region to assist member organizations in complying with CMS rules regarding exercise participation.

This exercise will be a comprehensive discussion-based tabletop exercise with an open discussion led by an exercise facilitator. Participants will have an opportunity to evaluate their current response concepts, plans, and capabilities related to a flood scenario. This exercise will focus on providing a scenario that should stimulate participants to reflect on their own organizations’ capabilities and identify local risks and hazards.

Participating organizations will walk away having identified strengths and areas for improvement within their Emergency Plan. The exercise facilitator will provide participants with an After-Action Report (AAR) overview and document template that can be completed by individual facilities.

This is the same exercise offered in four locations across the region.

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)
