The WA Dept. of Health, Northwest Healthcare Response Network and Public Health departments for Seattle King County, Tacoma Pierce County, Kitsap County and Snohomish County are planning a full scale exercise to test Emergency Operations Centers and Medical Countermeasures operations related to a biological or terrorism event.
This survey is specific to the healthcare facilities in Seattle King County and Tacoma Pierce County that are supported by the Northwest Healthcare Response Network. We encourage hospitals, long term care facilities and any other healthcare facility that may serve as a Private Medication Center to participate in this exercise!
