To facilitate coalition wide collaboration to support family reunification preparedness and response following a disaster a new HPP deliverable was introduced for FY 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, maintain participation with the Family Reunification Center system. The FIC guide was developed to assist hospitals in creating their facility specific FIC plan.  Subsequent to the development of the FIC guide, ReddiNet developed an internet based Family Reunification Center (FRC) application to support FIC plans. The FRC application facilitates information sharing with other hospitals to enhance family reunification efforts following a disaster.

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.
