The Eastern Health Preparedness Coalition and Southeastern Healthcare Preparedness Region are sponsoring the next exercise in our exercise series for 120 to Landfall: 2.0. We will be conducting a functional exercise that will continue to help us to improve healthcare response capabilities across both regions.
The 120 to Landfall: 2.0 exercise series is focused on evacuation considerations, and implications they may have during a major hurricane threatening the eastern North Carolina coast. The goal of the exercise is to address any identified gaps, incorporate the continuing care community, and continue to move both regions toward the end goal of a full-scale regional healthcare facility evacuation exercise. The functional exercise will be conducted in-person immediately following the North Carolina Disaster Symposium on March 24, 2022 at the New Bern Convention Center, located at 203 S. Front St, New Bern, NC 28560.
The purpose in continuing this exercise series is to thoroughly examine and evaluate the current capabilities of coalition stakeholders to prepare for, respond to, and recover from all-hazard incidents. The continued exercise series will assist us in addressing any identified gaps, incorporate the continuing care community, and continue to move both regions toward the end goal of a full-scale regional healthcare facility evacuation
This exercise will be financed in total with funds awarded by ASPR to EHPC and SHPR as part of the HPP cooperative agreement.
The purpose of the Eastern Healthcare Preparedness Coalition is to facilitate joint planning, response and recovery to a disaster. This will lead to the continued integration of public health and emergency management into the planning team as well as expansion to other healthcare partners like long term care, community health centers, law enforcement, and fire departments.
