Members from Region 3 HMCC recently participated in the “Operationalizing Emergency Plans: Incident Command in Action” course at the Gould Barn in Topsfield.

The course focused on improving public health and healthcare agencies’ operational readiness, i.e. their ability to quickly and effectively transition from normal operations to emergency operations operating under an Incident Command System (ICS) structure, with a strict emphasis on utilizing existing Emergency Operations Plans (EOP) to guide the overall response.
