  1. Hospital Emergency Response Training (HERT) for Mass Casualty Incidents (MCI) Train-the-Trainer Course Course Code: B461

  2. HERT FOR MCI • Hospital Emergency Response Training (HERT) for Mass Casualty Incidents (MCI) Train-the-Trainer, B461 Course • Resident Offering at Noble Training Center, Anniston, Alabama • 4.0 Days • Special offerings for hospital emergency departments, administration, and staff personnel • Prerequisites: • IS-195, Basic ICS • IS-346, An Orientation to Hazardous Materials for Medical Personnel B461 Course

  3. What HERT for MCI is Not? • Not a HazMat Course.

(Cont’d) • Not a Hospital Emergency Incident Command System (HEICS) Course: • HERT stresses HEICS as a valuable tool for hospitals • Recognizes all Hospital Incident Management Systems (HIMS) • HERT emphasizes a hospital IMS during emergency response • HERT integrates its HIMS into all aspects of the course B461 Course

  5. What HERT for MCI is Not? (Cont’d) • Not a Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Course: • HERT emphasizes the handling of patients contaminated with CBRNE agents • Recognizes attendee’s prior training and skills concerning these agents • Attendees should receive additional training on WMD Events from ODP B461 Course

  6. What HERT for MCI is Not? (Cont’d) • Not a National Incident Management System (NIMS) Course: • HERT emphasizes the use of an incident management system to comply with the NIMS • Recognizes attendee’s prior training in the NIMS • Has incorporated NIMS where it applies throughout the course • Participants wanting additional training should enroll in FEMA’s Online Courses in the NIMS: • IS 700 NIMS, An Introduction • IS 800 NRP, An Introduction B461 Course

  7. Unit One Course Introduction: Origin of the Incident Command System (ICS)

  8. Objectives • Review ICS as an incident management tool • List uses of ICS in emergency management • Describe the history of ICS • Discuss the evolution of HEICS • Define basic HEICS structure • Review ICS organizational chart B461 Course

  9. Objectives (cont'd) • Develop an initial organizational structure • List minimum staffing requirements • Prepare an incident briefing • Participate in a planning meeting • Develop incident objectives and an Incident Action Plan (IAP) • Identify appropriate uses of resources B461 Course

  10. What is ICS? • The model incident management tool for: • Command, control, and coordination of an emergency response • Providing a means to coordinate efforts of individual agencies • Allowing agencies to work toward a common goal for stabilizing an incident • Ensuring the protection of life, property, and the environment B461 Course

  11. When is ICS Used? • Hazardous materials incidents • Response to natural disasters • Fire and riot control • Incidents involving multiple casualties: • Weapons of Mass Destruction • Mass Casualty Events • Wide-area search and rescue missions B461 Course

  13. History of ICS (cont'd) • FIRESCOPE identified several recurring problems involving multi-agency responses, such as: • Nonstandard terminology • Lack of flexibility to expand or contract resources as required • Nonstandard and nonintegrated communications • Lack of consolidated action plans • Lack of designated facilities B461 Course

  14. History of ICS (cont'd) • Efforts to address these difficulties resulted in the development of an ICS model • Success of ICS has resulted directly from applying: • A command organizational structure • Key standardized management principles B461 Course

  15.

Hospital Emergency Incident Command System (HEICS) • Modeled after FIRESCOPE • Early work by the Northern California Hospital Council • California authorized a grant to Orange Country EMS for HEICS Project 91/92 • Major rewrite of HEICS documents: • Now provide the current HEICS Plan • HEICS considered a model for hospital incident management system B461 Course

  17. HEICS Attributes • HEICS attributes: • Command, control, coordination, and intelligence • Functional incident management system • A dependable chain-of-command • Improved communications through common language • Flexibility in section (component) activation • Prioritization of duties • Adaptable to HazMat, WMD, and MCI B461 Course
