Emergency management exercise: Bomb threat in the hospital
This hands-on session will examine a specific scenario: a man walks into a hospital, claiming he is carrying a bomb in his backpack. What are the next steps your security department should take? Have you prepared for this type of event ahead of time? How would your security staff react?  Would nurses, doctors and hospital staff know what to do? Focus On attendees should ask themselves these questions ahead of time and also consider which hospital codes would apply in the event of such an incident.
