1. ESF8: Medical Surge Planning and Coordination Emergency medical surge planning in your County and the value of integrating medical and non-medical volunteers into your plan AGENCY LOGO

2. Emergency Support Function #8- Health and Medical (ESF8) ESF8 is a system of health and medical agencies that are coordinated in an emergency based on a common set of established plans, tools and resources in order to meet specific outcomes that affect the health and medical care of those involved in the incident (casualties and responders.)

3. ESF8 as a System NIMS/ICS principles apply to incident response but not always to EOC management Existing system of relationships become extended beyond agency/jurisdictional boundaries Examples: Infection Control, Patient triage and tracking, Surge staffing for Alternate Care Facility ESF8 System Models Basic: agency-agency Intermediate: multi-agency, limited number of ESFs Complex: multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional, full EOC response

4. ESF8 as Outcomes Effective Patient Tracking Effective coordination in response (resolves differences among agencies) Efficient utilization of resources Efficient and rapid response and request for support Common operational model (local, state, federal) Ensures agency response is competent based on agency/discipline standards Strategic guidance and direction

6. Where did ESF originate? National Response Framework- assigned federal agencies to Emergency Support Functions: Guidance: Governments at all levels should use the NIMS resource management principles described below to enhance response capabilities. State Emergency Operations Plan (SEOP) County Emergency Operations Plan (Contains ESF annexes) Post 9-11 mandate to remove the silos that limit communication between organizations. Seat in the EOC/MACG? Ops vs. non-ops. Where will you fit in?

7. National Response Framework (NRF) Framework Document (Base Plan) Support Annexes Incident Annexes Emergency Support Function (ESF) Annexes Outline agency responsibilities for coordination, planning, support, resources, program implementation, and services during emergencies ESF #11 - Agriculture and Natural Resources ESF #12 - Energy ESF #13 - Public Safety and Security ESF #14 - Long-Term Recovery/Mitigation ESF #15 - External Affairs ESF #1 - Transportation ESF #2 - Communications ESF #3 - Public Works, Engineering ESF #4 - Firefighting ESF #5 - Emergency Management ESF #6 - Mass Care, Housing ESF #7 - Resource Support ESF #8 - Public Health, Medical, Mortuary ESF #9 - Urban Search and Rescue ESF #10 - Oil and Hazardous Materials

12. Activation Must ESF8 be activated by emergency management?

13. Medical Surge ESF8 Activation Thresholds Hospital needs additional resources Patient surge exceeds hospital Consider activating Mesa County Hospital Coordination Center Consider activating Mesa County Multi- agency Coordination Group Medical Resources exceed availability in county Patient surge exceeds county Consider Declaration of Emergency

14. ESF8 Planning Committee Mission Statement: The County Emergency Support Function 8 Planning Committee (ESF8 Committee) is a multi-disciplinary, coordinating group representing ESF8 agencies and organizations. The Committee addresses critical healthcare needs in our Community. The ESF8 Committee develops strategies and solutions which synchronize the use of diverse healthcare resources during emergencies or disasters affecting County .

16. Basic Response Example: Agency to Agency Hospital-EMS Public Health- Hospital ICP

17. Intermediate Response Example: Multi-Agency, Multi-Jurisdiction, Limited Number of ESFs Alamosa, CO, Salmonella (ESFs 3, 5, 8, and 15) Limited geographic area flooding/natural disaster. Chemical hazmat spill response with casualties. H1N1? Intermediate or severe? Where were we at?

18. Complex Response Example: Multi-Agency, Full EOC Response Catastrophic natural event (Snowstorm, outbreak, flooding) Pitkin County, CO- Dirty bomb/mass casualty Train derailment (i.e. Silverton- Durango, Amtrak)
