Preparing for Flu Season
Surge Tent Use for 2011-2012

During the 2010-11 flu season, the use of surge tents to screen and triage patients required involvement by the State Fire Marshal (SFM), Local Fire Marshal, Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) and California Department of Public Health (CDPHi). Regulations and policies governing the use of tents have not changed for the 2011-12 flu season.

CHA released a memo and distributed pertinent attachments outlining the 2011-2012 policies on tent use.
