NYSDOH Office of Health Emergency Preparedness Offers Webinar on Transportation Assistance Levels

Shelley Wagar Sabo in NYSCAL Notes

The New York State Department of Health’s (NYSDOH) Office of Health Emergency Preparedness (OHEP) and the Office of Primary Care Health Systems Management (OPCHSM) have recently developed a standard Transportation Assistance Levels (TALs) system which was introduced in the 2009 Evacuation Update Project. The TALs classifications are for use by acute and non-acute healthcare professionals to assess the types of transportation resources needed during a planned facility evacuation due to any event. The training will provide guidance on the revised standardized statewide transportation assistance levels (TALs) system for the movement of patients/residents during a facility evacuation. The attached flyer offers four dates and times for the training webinar as well as the registration link and process.
