Event Description

EHPC Peds Annex Workshop (19201)

The EHPC Pediatric Annex describes how the region will respond to an influx of pediatric patients. This plan is intended to support, not, replace, any existing facility plan by providing uniform response actions. This is the first of five annex plans required to be written and exercised by the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response. 

This workshop will provide a review of the regional pediatric annex plan with a specific focus on activation. A pediatric patient surge scenario will be provided in order to walk through the plan. This workshop aims to increase familiarity with the plan and will provide information valuable to the forthcoming tabletop exercise. 

In April of 2021 a region wide blended virtual/in-person tabletop exercise will take place. Locations spread across five counties will be connected virtually to enable a more realistic incident and allow smaller groups of people to congregate. Those who do not wish to travel to one of these five locations will be able to also join virtually. This exercise will focus on an incident occurring in Greene County. Ideally, we would like EOC’s in Greene, Lenoir, Pitt, Wayne, and Wilson County to participate that include stakeholders from Emergency Management, hospitals, EMS, Public Health, and county schools. EHPC staff members will be present at each location to steer the exercise.

Coalition members from other counties are encouraged to attend the tabletop either virtually or in Pitt County where a larger conference area that permits social distancing is available. This exercise will present a large-scale incident that will require resources from across the region.

Once you are confirmed for the workshop, a webex link will be provided.
