Keywords: The Project ESCAPE “Evaluate Surge Capacity and Prioritized Evacuation” exercise is designed to establish a learning environment for players to exercise emergency response plans, policies, and procedures as they pertain to an evacuation of a long term care facility and the medical surge of an acute care facility. A full scale exercise is a complex event that requires detailed planning. To ensure an effective exercise, subject matter experts (SMEs) and local representatives from numerous agencies have taken part in the planning process and will take part in exercise conduct and evaluation.
