Reception Sites
(FCC)
What we need to know
•
•
•
•
How many patients over what period (approx)
What airfields (coordinated approval)
Rate of delivery to the Airfield
Acuity of Patients (higher Acuity, less
patients)
– Litter/Amb – Space, number of patients/plane
– Critical – CCATT and Equipment
– Vented – CCATT, Equipment and O2
• How will Patient Movement Requests flow
• Will need to know but make best guess
Other factors
• Notice vs No Notice
– Hurricane vs Earthquake/CBRNE
• Catastrophic or Not (Potential or Just Bad)
– 7.8 Earthquake/Nuke or Prestorm/Wildfire
• State Request Submitted or On Fence
