Description: Although designed for hospitals, LTC providers may also find this toolkit informative. Developed by the New Jersey Hospital Association, the Hurricane Planning, Response and Recovery Toolkit is designed to assist hospitals in preparing for, responding to and recovering from the potential consequences of a hurricane. The toolkit focuses on sheltering-in-place planning and planning for recovery. It enhances current hospital all-hazards disaster plans and is not to be used in lieu of existing plans, but rather as a primer for a facility preparing for the specific challenges presented by a hurricane.
