As a valued Healthcare Partner with the Chicago Healthcare System Coalition for Preparedness and Response, you are cordially invited to participate in a Tabletop Exercise that addresses facility response to EXTREME HEAT. (Note that this exercise is ONLY designed/designated for NON-Hospital facilities such as Long-Term Care, Dialysis, Home Health, and Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers).

The purpose of this tabletop exercise is to provide an opportunity for CHSCPR Healthcare Partners to address a variety of considerations associated with continuity of operations, information sharing, and the medical management of casualties in a challenging extreme heat / power outage scenario. The objectives are as follows:

  • All organizations are able to activate their command team and manage a multi-day heat wave.
  • All organizations address patient care considerations impacted by a severe heat emergency.
  • Healthcare Partners are able to address key functions of continuity of operations during a power outage to include facility operations under a heat emergency.
  • LTCFs are able to address considerations for facility evacuation due to extreme heat/power loss.
