Hunterdon Medical Center and the New Jersey EMS Task Force will hold a Full-Scale Emergency Response Exercise. The exercise is designed to ensure a coordinated, timely, and effective response and recovery in the event of a major disaster that would make a hospital non-operational and have to evacuate patients.
The exercise will start on Friday, October 20th and end on Sunday, October 22nd. On Saturday, October 21st, Hunterdon Medical Center will be evacuating simulated patients as part of the drill to test their emergency preparedness plan. There will be emergency services present during the exercise. The exercise will take place away from patient-facing areas and patient care will not be interrupted during this drill.
During the exercise, the public may see an increased presence of emergency response vehicles in the areas that are part of the exercise.
