After Action Report (AAR)

The above After Action Report includes highlighted portions, which is your space to input your facility’s information.

The North Central Florida HealthCare Coalition and Northeast Florida Healthcare Coalition provided an in-person Continuity of Operations (COOP) Tabletop Exercise for member organizations. Below were the dates and times of the offerings. This exercise assisted member organizations in complying with CMS rules regarding exercise participation.

This was a comprehensive discussion-based tabletop exercise with an open discussion led by an
exercise facilitator. The scenario was centered on continuity of operations related to an
extreme weather event. Participants were challenged to assess their plans, policies, and
procedures. Participating organizations walked away having identified strengths and areas for
improvement within their COOP Plan.

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)
