This plan is designed to provide the foundation for SLOPHD in preparing for, mitigating against, responding to, and recovering from an emergency. The Plan describes how SLOPHD integrates into the SLO County emergency response structure. It provides a framework for coordination of response and recovery efforts within SLOPHD in coordination with the OA, state government, and federal agencies where appropriate.
The purpose of this Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is to describe the process for distribution of prophylaxis (medications or vaccines) or medical supplies to Closed POD partners where a written agreement, planning, and training have taken place prior to the emergency event. The SOP also provides guidance to the Closed POD partner(s) for their medication or medical supply distribution process.
Guide the hospitals and other response entities in San Luis Obispo County in responding effectively to any event that presents the potential for a large number of persons seeking emergency and/or acute medical assistance, at the location of the hospital, or the defined hospital zone.
