(Recorded Webinar) Documenting Your Disaster Response

This webinar is closed to new enrollments. For more health center trainings, click here.

While health centers react to various natural emergencies - hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, flooding – based on their response, they can fulfill the annual testing requirement(s) under the CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule. 

If a health center experiences an actual natural emergency that requires the activation of their emergency plan, the health center is exempt from the CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule requirement to engage in a full-scale exercise for one year following the onset of the event. 

This webinar will cover:

  • Annual emergency plan testing requirements under the CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule for health centers
  • Exemption from the testing requirement for actual natural or man-made emergencies that require activation of the health center’s emergency plan
  • Tips and resources for documenting the health center’s response to the actual natural emergency
    To purchase the on-demand version of this webinar as a standalone, click here.

    Please note: This webinar is offered as a complimentary product to all Health Center Compliance Premium Plan Subscribers. For more information on our Premium Plan, click here or Contact Us.

    Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

    Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
