Participation from volunteers is vital for fulfillment of the Federal Aviation Administration requirements by which CVG Airport is mandated.
CVG officials will be joined by a small army of disaster preparedness professionals, first responders, and volunteers to test their collective readiness for a large-scale emergency at the region’s largest international airport.
Area hospitals are being challenged to exercise and test their surge capabilities in the event of a disaster.
The intended audience are those with little to no experience in planning for exercises within their healthcare facility.
The Health Collaborative’s disaster preparedness team will be holding a learning exercise for hospitals on May 22. Let us know if you’re interested in joining us there.
We caught up with Amber Antoni, our new Director of Regional Preparedness Coordination, who was recently hired to lead our emergency preparedness and response-related activities.
