Operation Family Center
BU HEM student Nina Kabiri was in charge of the group who exercised the Family Support Center plan for Cook’s Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas. The plan was written by 2012 BU HEM graduate Simon Chernack (BU ’12), an Emergency Management Specialist at Cook’s Children’s Hospital, and allowed for many features including Family Center Support Branch, Case Management, Support Services, Family Tracking and External Relations to be exercised in real time.
BU HEM support staff acted as role players as parents of NICU babies who were sheltering in place after an F2 tornado. Great job by everyone involved.
