This excerpt from Montrose County Health & Human Services' Emergency Operations Plan describes the agency's planning around the need for surge capacity.
The plan lists indicators that allow the agency to identify an event that may exceed their ordinary capacity.
The plan also contains a table describing actions, plans, and staff responsible for the detection, notification, and activation processes associated with the indicators.
A second table illustrates the surge capacities that can be used to fill specific planning and response needs, broken down by even severity.
This plan was submitted as evidence for a Project Public Health Ready application and can be used as an example by other agencies.
