The primary objective of this presentation is to assist other
health care facilities with improving their own response and
business continuity plans in the event of a wildfire evacuation.
Presenters share lessons learned from the full-scale evacuation
of Barton Memorial Hospital and Skilled Nursing Facility in
response to the Caldor Fire. We will discuss the logistical
challenges of evacuating and repopulating a bistate rural health
care system, explore staffing and personnel challenges and
considerations, and review lessons learned.
