ER- Fire Disaster

  1. Dear Nurses,
    I am on a comittee that is searching for fire disaster preperation. There is a lot of federal sites but a lot of non humonoid language having more to do with the Idea of having disaster preparation and no indication where step one step two or here is some standards - all vague mission statement speak - whole lot of nice sounds weak on clarity. I have some data from a sourse but looking for more if anyone knows of some viewable plans, ideas I sure would like to take a look. Thanks and God bless you.

    I am not clear as to what you are asking. Do you want hospital disaster/fire plans? Are you looking for how hospitals would handle disasters, or a large scale community fire? If you are looking for fire safety and internal disaster plans for a hospital, I would suggest you contact the risk manager of a local large hospital. They may point you to whoever is in charge at that facility. Engineering is usually who coordinates that at facilities I have been with.

    If you are looking for how ER's would handle disasters or fires, I suggest going to local EMS and Fire department personel. I am sure they, like hospitals, have huge amounts of information on policies and procedures. Good luck.

    Have you checked the Homeland Security web site? Look for the standards that are out for disaster preparedness for hospitals. Talk to the safety manager for a large hospital they can probably give you some sources. Emergency Nurses Association has a disaster management magazine and thier site might have some links. Good luck.
