Training and Drills

Regular training and drills help to familiarize staff with their disaster roles and responsibilities. They also serve to point out weaknesses or omissions in the plan that require additions or revisions. Drills can range from full-scale community-wide simulations with moulage victims to tabletop triage games to minidrills that test only certain components of the disaster plan, such as call-up of personnel and testing of communications. JCAHO requires two drills a year; the scenarios should reflect incidents that are likely to occur in the community.
