Caring for People When They Need It Most
From medical surge planning to mass casualty incident readiness, we assist healthcare facilities and healthcare coalitions to be ready for the unthinkable. Our breadth of healthcare experience coupled with real-world response insights helps healthcare solve today’s toughest problems and strengthen community health outcomes.
We provide understanding of compliance requirements for the Joint Commission, the CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule, and ASPR’s Hospital Preparedness Program. We support healthcare preparedness planning, training, and exercise efforts in decontamination, pediatric readiness, continuity, pandemic preparedness, crisis and risk communication, and much more.

Award-Winning Healthcare Preparedness Projects
We have supported notable healthcare systems and public health agencies with their emergency response programs. Sample Healthcare Preparedness projects span the State of California’s Statewide Medical and Health Preparedness Exercise program, “15 til’ 50” mass casualty incident planning, and CBRNE readiness.
Statewide Medical and Health Exercises
A State as large as California has complex requirements for healthcare preparedness. CONSTANT was engaged to successfully execute a multi-year effort to support the State of California in managing its annual statewide medical and health disaster exercise. The effort spanned multiple trainings, website design, video production, technical assistance, and outreach. CONSTANT brought fresh ideas on managing the complex threat landscape of California, broadening connections with healthcare partners, and evolving resilience capabilities to meet the challenges ahead.
CBRNE Readiness for Healthcare
CONSTANT is currently assessing local decontamination plans and jurisdictional CBRNE response capabilities for the Bay Area. This includes the design and conduct of a virtual workshop series to understand government and partner agency operational capacities, development of a regional Concept of Operations, and the creation of a purchasing plan to acquire CBRNE equipment. This project also involves the conduct of training and exercises for regional medical, public health, and first responders, the definition of future training and exercise suggestions for the region, and the tracking of evaluation metrics to assess how gaps were addressed by the project.
Medical Surge Readiness Program
Healthcare facilities must be ready to surge to meet the needs following a disaster. Working with two regional hospitals in Los Angeles, CONSTANT developed the “15 til’ 50″ Mass Casualty Incident Toolkit that outlines how to prepare for a surge of patients with only 15 minutes’ notice. This award-winning toolkit was designed for healthcare emergency managers and included a PowerPoint deck, checklists, plan templates, videos, talking points, supply lists, and more. This program was recognized by the California Emergency Services Association (CESA) for its innovation and relevance.
