Webinar Offers Effective Way to Conduct Your Facility’s Required Tabletop Exercise

Is the Emergency Preparedness Plan in place for 2020? Do you have a plan for how you’re going to do the required annual tabletop exercise? Need a review of the requirements of the emergency preparedness rule? Join us for a webinar on February 27th at 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.!

WHCA/WiCAL is pleased to present our Emergency Preparedness Webinar for facilities to be ready for the requirements of the Emergency Preparedness Rule. Participants will receive a brief overview of the rule and then have the opportunity participate in and complete a tabletop exercise simulating the process necessary for emergency response. The exercise will challenge participants to think through a scenario, consider if their plan will work, and examine whether their plan is in proper working order. From this exercise and discussion, centers will be able to determine what worked, what they need to improve upon, and complete an after-action review to document all of their findings.
