Course Description:

The Facility Guidelines Institute recently convened an Emergency Conditions Committee of researchers, architects, providers, and authorities having jurisdiction to collect case studies and evidence-based information, identify solutions, craft recommendations, and establish minimum standards to address a wide variety of emergency conditions facing care providers. This deep dive will highlight the resulting recommendations and minimum requirements put forth by the Residential Health, Care and Support Facilities Subcommittee for inclusion in the Guidelines.

Learning Objectives:

1. Review the types of disasters impacting residential settings.

2. Explore the response patterns for emergency conditions that vary in scope, severity, and duration.

3. Examine design recommendations and minimum standards arising from the FGI Emergency Conditions Residential Subcommittee.

4. Understand where there are gaps in current knowledge and opportunities for further study.
