The world has been so focused on COVID-19 that it seems summer — and wildfire season — have snuck up on us. An upcoming complimentary webinar only for CHA members, July 29 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., will focus on Wildfires During a Public Health Disaster: Incident Action Planning.  

Responding to wildfires during a pandemic highlights the importance of health care personnel and communities working together. Preparing and thinking outside the box helps improve our response. This webinar will also discuss: 

  • Wildfire Command and Operational Period objectives with COVID-19 
  • How emergency response personnel roles change in a prolonged event 
  • How staffing, transport, and supplies and equipment planning change in a pandemic 
  • How evacuation and shelter-in-place plans change with a highly communicable disease
