The purpose of the Children’s Memorial Medical Center (CMMC) Emergency Operations Plan is to coordinate and structure an emergency response among departments, appointed leaders and locations. The Incident Command Structure is used to manage an organizational response to all hazards.
The Emergency (Incident Specific) plans, policies and procedures guide organizational and department response to events that may occur as determined by the Hazard Vulnerability Analysis or other planning recommendations recommended by city, state or federal authorities. (See Emergency Policies on the POINT).
The Children’s Memorial Research Center (CMRC) has prepared the following plans for addressing emergency situations and disasters in CMRC, the research center, and the Research Support Facility, (RSF) where the animal facility is located. The purpose of this plan is to offer guidelines for personnel on site at the time of an emergency or disaster and to suggest possible and likely approaches to protecting both human and animal health after the primary response teams (e.g., fire department, police, and safety officers) have responded. Professional judgment is essential in these situations.
This plan is approved by the CMRC Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, the Senior Vice President-Chief Operations Officer; the Senior Vice President for Research, and the President and Scientific Director of CMRC. It is reviewed no less than annually as part of the CMRC Office of Research and Integrity Compliance Program and the IACUC program review.
