Webinar – Fire Preparedness and Lessons Learned from Critical Access Hospitals

June 15, 2023
10:00am - 11:00am Pacific Time
Target audience includes CHI owner insured hospital and long-term care risk managers and organization staff responsible for hazard preparation and emergency management coordination and response.


In recent years, wildfires have become more frequent, larger, and burn at higher severity across the western United States and especially in California. The 2020 and 2022 fire seasons were some of the worst on record in California and included several of the largest wildfires in state history.

Two CHI owners have firsthand experience with recent wildfires requiring evacuation and receiving evacuees.  Eastern Plumas Health Care and Fairchild Medical Center learned valuable lessons from the Loyalton, Dixie, and McKinney Fires, and will share helpful insight on a multitude of topics from patient safety to resource management. Please join us for this one-hour webinar helping you prepare for the next wildfire and other hazards.
