Carroll County Medical Surge Tabletop
The Exercise and Training team developed and delivered a tabletop exercise Aug. 28, 2013 for the Carroll County Health Department. Local healthcare facilities, law enforcement, emergency medical services, and state and local coordinating agencies joined CHHS staff to discuss the scenario of a flu-like illness causing a medical surge in the county. The exercise helped local officials review their response plans while working with partners in the county to prepare for flu or other potential pandemics that might stress public health capabilities.
