The tornado on June 16, 2014 was devastating to the small town of Pilger, NE. This massive super cell required a response from all the surrounding communities. One of those nearby cities was Norfolk, Ne. Faith Regional Health Services took many patients that night and responded with their disaster plan. As with any disaster, this group has experience and lessons learned to share.
By the end of this webinar participants will be able to:
Understand how quickly a situation can escalate.
Understand the importance of prior preparedness planning and exercise.
Describe the lessons learned after the response.
Understand the importance of preparing for items noted in community Hazard Vulnerability Assessments (HVA).
