How we Evacuated Two Hospitals Amidst Colorado’s Marshall Fire: Managing the Chaos, Being Okay with Being Uncomfortable, and Critical Relationships
Members, Guests and Visitors are welcome to attend.
Summary: On December 30th 2021, in the midst of pandemic-related facility capacity issues, an unprecedented urban conflagration in the suburbs of Denver resulted in mass evacuations, destruction of 1000+ homes and businesses, and the emergent evacuation of a Level 3 Trauma Center and a Level 2 Trauma Center. This presentation begins with leading attendees through two distinct hospital evacuations and the just-in-time integration of a Hospital Resource Officer (HRO), which played a critical role throughout the evolution of the incident. We will discuss lessons learned and best practices related to hospital evacuation as well as the importance of challenging assumptions. We will describe the evolution of the HRO role, its core concepts, and operational objectives, and how it can be utilized during a variety of incidents.
