To facilitate Health Care Coalition (HCC) wide collaboration to support family reunification preparedness and response following an emergency or disaster, a new Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) deliverable was introduced for CY 2022 – “Conduct Family Reunification Center (FRC) training and tabletop exercise”.

This new deliverable is intended to build upon the previously developed Family Information Center (FIC) guide and the previously implemented HPP deliverable of, “maintain participation with the Family Reunification Center system.”

The goals of the FRC exercise include:

  • Facilitate the development of processes needed to operationalize the use of the FRC system during an activation of the Hospital Family Information Center (FIC) plan
  • Promote FRC end-user familiarity
  • Assess FRC information sharing capabilities

The achievability of the overall goals will be assessed by tasking end-users (players) to test accessing the FRC application, data entry, data gathering, and information sharing to support family reunification efforts.

The Medical Response and Surge Exercise (MRSE) is an annual requirement of the Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) cooperative agreement. The MRSE is a functional exercise designed to examine and evaluate the ability of Healthcare Coalitions (HCC) and other stakeholders to support medical surge. Placing stress on the health system is important for testing current response systems, identifying gaps in preparedness, and informing improvement planning.
