PVMC will be participating in a decontamination drill on Wednesday, May 11, from 7:00 a.m. until noon.
The City of Brighton Emergency Preparedness, with several other local emergency response teams (Police, Fire, EMS, etc.), will be coordinating this exercise. With the help of some volunteers, we can test our hospital’s responses and enhance our preparedness if an actual event were to occur. When we conducted a similar drill several years ago and it was a good learning experience for our hospital and community. The drill will also help us with some of our regulatory compliance requirements.
We will need about 50 volunteers who are willing to get showered (in a swimsuit) in our decontamination tent during the drill. I am hoping that some of our employees will consider volunteering and possibly some high school students (w/ parental permission) and/or RN students will be willing to help out, too. We would like to have all volunteers signed up by April 26th. If you’d like to help, contact Colleen on X1553 for more detailed information.
