Real World Event After Action Template

This “Real-World” after-action report template is a modified Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program AAR template. This template was developed by the Northeast Florida Healthcare Coalition for healthcare facilities (non-hospital) to use to evaluate the effectiveness of healthcare facility Plans that have been activated as a result of a real-world event (not an exercise). The template provides direction on what should be included within each section of the document.

The template has the following sections to address:
Real World Event Overview
Analysis of Plan Activation (includes a summary of Plan performance)
Strengths and Areas for Improvement
Improvement Plan Matrix (highlights issue areas and the corrective action to be taken) 

Any questions regarding this AAR template can be directed to Eric Anderson, Sr. Planner at 904-279-0880 or

This is a 6-hour course that provides a working foundation of the NHICS concept. This class was developed to provide planning and response guidance to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. It describes the nursing home incident command system, which can be used by facilities regardless of size or resident care capabilities, and is intended to assist with emergency planning and response efforts for all hazards.

The focus of the course is on organizing the nursing home team, implementing command and control measures, and decision making. The course is delivered to meet requirements from The Joint Commission. Training objectives include:

                     1) Reveal an increased awareness of the impact that the Incident Command System
                           has on healthcare facilities

                     2) Describe the relationship of ICS, NIMS, and NHICS

                     3) Understand the need for nursing home planning and the use of a standardized
                          incident management system

                     4) Understand the NHICS model and its integration into the current hospital

                     5) Prepare individual staff members for emergencies

***CEUs are available for Nursing Home Administrators who attend this course***
