Cold Weather Emergency Incident Rehab - Logistical Considerations

This is part two of a four part series on the topic of Emergency Incident Rehabilitation. In this segment we address the special logistical considerations for establishing Emergency Incident Rehabilitation in cold weather. Joining me for this series is Dr. Jeremy Cushman, Medical Director for Monroe County, NY.

In part one we discussed the need for rehabilitation. In part three we'll cover the importance of "Pre-Hab" and physical fitness. Changing weather conditions and the use of Incident Action Planning in relation to rehabilitation operations are covered in part four.

Cold Weather Emergency Incident Rehabilitation was produced for emergency responders off all disciplines. Health care professionals who may treat responders in the hospital environment  will also benefit from this background information. For more on cold weather emergencies, click here.
