ASPR TRACIE Webinar: August, 2017

CLICK HERE to view the informational flyer. The National Ebola Training and Education Center (NETEC) and the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response Technical Resources, Assistance Center, and Information Exchange (ASPR TRACIE) are partnering on a series of webinars featuring NETEC’s suite of free, fully customizable, Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP)-compliant exercise materials. The first webinar in the series provided an overview of NETEC’s exercise templates for highly pathogenic infectious diseases and highlighted some unique planning considerations. The second webinar focused on exercise planning for frontline facilities (acute care hospitals and other emergency care settings, such as urgent care clinics and critical access hospitals). The next webinar features regional transport planning. Speakers will describe NETEC exercise templates designed to test regional plans for the transport of patients under investigation for a highly pathogenic infectious disease. Representatives from three jurisdictions will share tips and lessons learned from recent regional transport exercises in Maryland, Texas, and Nevada. The webinar will take place Wednesday, August 23, from 2:00 PM-3:00 PM ET.
