    • Overview:  Healthcare Leadership for All-Hazards Incidents (HCL) is a four-day course which exposes healthcare professionals to the dynamics involved in the decision making processes during an all-hazards disaster involving mass casualties. The course uses a combination of lecture and exercises, to provide responders and receivers foundational information on which to base critical decisions during the fast-paced final exercise.Below are some, but not all, of the critical skill sets learned during this training program:
      • Explain healthcare emergency management roles and responsibilities in the disaster lifecycle process—mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
      • Communicate the use of the Incident Command System (ICS) in the healthcare system through Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) and the Public Health Incident Command System (PHICS).
      • Evaluate medical supply management and distribution at the local, state, and federal levels.
      • Recognize the requirement for personal protective equipment (PPE), the four levels of protection and factors in selecting a level, the need and purpose of decontamination both wet and dry, and decontamination planning and patient management processes.
      • Illustrate the important points of communications planning, the role of the Public Information Officer (PIO), and the criticality of effective media relations during a mass casualty incident (MCI).
