Training & Exercises

Training

The Network develops innovative, year-round training and exercise opportunities tailored to the unique needs of Washington state’s healthcare community. Our members and partners—including the leading medical institutions in the region—contribute the latest knowledge to help ensure each training is relevant to our region’s healthcare disaster services needs.

Past training opportunities include:

  • Business Resiliency and Recovery Workshop
  • Pediatric Emergency Response Workshop

Exercises

Network exercises offer healthcare partners the opportunity to practice, test and course-correct their disaster-response services using real-life scenarios. Exercises focus on the top hazards for our region and incorporate vital disaster response tactics (e.g., transferring patients between hospitals).

Examples include:

• National Disaster Medical System Patient Reception Full-Scale Exercise
• National Disaster Medical System Patient Reception Tabletop Exercise
• Healthcare Facility Water Disruption Exercise
• Nursing Home Evacuation Tabletop Exercise
