Help prepare our community for a pandemic public health emergency!
A global flu pandemic would have severe impacts on our community and could to overwhelm our healthcare facilities. A pandemic would cause more people in our community to become ill, require hospitalization, and die, than during seasonal flu outbreaks.
To make sure we’re prepared, Boulder County Public Health and the Boulder County medical community have developed a plan to lessen the impacts of a flu pandemic and provide care to the community. One integral strategy in this plan is to create a buffer for local emergency departments by providing triage and treatment for residents who need less care at an Alternate Care Site located at the Boulder County Fairgrounds.
In this 2-day exercise, we will test the Care Site setup processes, initial triage, patient admission and care, and site take down.
People who have participated in past exercises like this report really enjoying the experience and the opportunity to help with something important. Please sign up for a role to “play” during the exercise, and thank you for your support!
