MPHCA: Facility Based Emergency Preparedness (EP) Tabletop Exercise (TTX)

Mississippi Primary Health Care Association is hosting a 4 hour Facility Based Emergency Preparedness (EP) Tabletop Exercise (TTX).

Thursday, September 14, 2017

10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Holmes Community College (list of area hotels below)

412 W. Ridgeland Avenue

Ridgeland, MS 39157


A tabletop exercise involves key personnel discussing simulated scenarios in an informal setting. TTXs can be used to assess plans, policies, and procedures. If you are looking to check off one of the CMS EP boxes regarding training and testing, this meeting will be a great opportunity to do so. If you need credit for a “facility-based” exercise, this will be an opportunity for you to participate and get credit for your efforts.  

Objectives for the exercise
  • Warning and notification to mission essential staff and patients regarding potential and current threats.  
  • Activation, management and maintenance of existing Emergency Operations Plans (EOP) and Continuity of Operations Plans (COOP) in support of identified Mission Essential Functions.
  • Support of staff members “Family Disaster Plans.”
  • Logistical plans for facility operations, critical resource identification, acquisition, distribution and re-supply.
  • Transition to normal business operations. 
  • Validation of existing policies, plans and procedures.
  • Identification of deficiencies and un-met needs in existing policies, plans and procedures.
  • Identify a plan of action that facilitates the revision of current policies, plans and procedures based on identified strengths and weaknesses.
  • Expedite the development of a viable “All-Hazards” Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP)
