Platinum Pediatric Surge Playbook
Catastrophic Capable

This session provides a proposed Model State and Multi-Jurisdictional Pediatric Surge PLAYBOOK (Master Guide Toolkit) to maximize and leverage pediatric surge operational capability during catastrophic events across local, state, and regional borders. It aligns and supports existing national, and state pediatric surge/emergency operations plans, and hospital plans. Recommendations can be utilized by a future integrated command structure across state jurisdictions to collectively leverage and incorporate pediatric situational awareness and response capabilities.
