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

​Continuity of Operations Plans (COOP) are a necessary component of every organization’s readiness for emergencies and disasters that effect the organization’s ability to “stay in business” through and following an emergency or disaster; to continue serving their customer and meeting their customer’s needs. The COOP is the detailed oriented plan that documents the decision making, logistics and coordination that must occur to effectively be “back in business” at alternate locations.
The Healthcare Coalition’s Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) program is designed to support any Coalition member organization in the development or refinement of their COOP. Regardless of how mature your COOP is; this workshop and planning experience is for you. The COOP program is structured to provide you several planning tools and planning experiences.

2. COOP Planning Workshop
    • A free 4- hour workshop available to any Healthcare Coalition member
    • Workshop will provide an overview of the COOP template and reference materials
    • Specific “how to” prompts are provided throughout the template and discussed in the workshop
    • All workshop participants will receive COOP program materials on a USB memory device for their use
