zones of operation slide preview

Zones of Operation During an Active Threat

Zones of operation are defined by the relative level of threat. These designations determine where certain actions and specific personnel are allowed to operate. As a result, and for a safer and more efficient response, we identify and label areas at the scene based on our knowledge of the potential threat(s) in each of those areas. We do this by assigning identifiers: the hot zone, the areas of highest risk; the warm zone, an area of intermediate risk; and the cold zone, areas of least risk with regard to the incident.

After Action Report Slide Preview

After Action Reports/Improvement Plans During a Pandemic

NCBRT is presenting a two-part webinar on after action plans/improvement plans in a pandemic response.

Part 1 of this presentation provides a basic understanding of after-action reports/improvement plans, or AAR/IPs, during a major disaster such as a pandemic. We will discuss the key issues to address and some basic steps to use when writing an AAR/IP. The presentation will also define after-action reports/improvement planning and their importance for documentation and continued improvement activities during a pandemic response. We will identify how conducting an after-action report for infectious diseases, which are long-term, complex incidents, varies from AAR/IP reporting for other incidents.

In the second part of NCBRT’s presentation on after action plans/improvement plans in a pandemic response, we will focus on the mechanics of writing the report: what to include in the report, what sources may be used to obtain that information, and how to use the templates available for writing the report. It will also include a review of AAR/IPs written for the pandemic response to the H1N1 pandemic at the local, state, and federal level.
