1 ANNEX 8 (ESF-8) HEALTH AND MEDICAL SERVICES PRIMARY: SUPPORT: SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) As directed within the SCEOP, each supporting agency will respond to coordinate the emergency activities of its department for a declared earthquake disaster. Selected state agencies or other organizations, as noted in this Annex, are assigned additional hazard specific responsibilities for earthquake response. I. INTRODUCTION SC Department of Mental Health (SCDMH) A. Medical and public health support will require support of private facilities, local, state, and federal agencies to treat casualties following a strong earthquake. B. The current planning estimated that all of the 12 medical facilities and two emergency care facilities that serve Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties could possibly experience severe damage from an M 7.3 earthquake event in the Charleston area. It is estimated that a daytime event would cause the highest number of casualties. Of the total estimated 20,000 casualties from a daytime event, approximately 70% will be injuries requiring medical attention, 24% will require hospitalization, and 6% will be fatalities in the Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester, Beaufort, and Colleton counties. C. ESF-8 will prepare for and execute disaster response activities using the Operational Area Concept and worst case loss estimation data in Attachment C to the Basic Plan. II. PURPOSE To ensure emergency provision of state s governmental resources for medical care; to facilitate and/or coordinate the provision of private resources for medical care for earthquake disaster victims; to supplement and support disrupted or overburdened local medical service personnel and facilities; and to perform deceased identification and mortuary services operations following an earthquake. III. CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS A. The Earthquake Checklist will be used to guide response operations following a strong earthquake. Activities in the Earthquake Checklist do Annex 8-1

2 Annex 8 (ESF-8) not replace required activities normally assigned to ESFs in the SCEOP and supporting ESF SOPs. The Checklist activities are to ensure that critical actions are completed and continue at the appropriate time during an earthquake response. See Attachment A to this Annex for Checklist. B. The initial stage of the medical response will consist principally of: 1. Alerting hospitals and county health offices in unaffected areas of the state to request an inventory of available personnel, supplies, and equipment resources. 2. Initiating requests for medical mutual aid through EMAC and FEMA. 3. Determining the condition of medical facilities in the impacted areas. Afterwards, medical response will consist of treating victims by either augmenting local medical capabilities or evacuating victims. C. ESF-8 functions will include: 1. Analyzing the Loss Estimation Reports prepared by SCEMD to determine the casualties expected by each Operational Area. 2. Using DHEC Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response (CASPER) Team to obtain population-based estimates of needs during the initial stages of recovery operations in order to facilitate the delivery of appropriate services and assistance to the affected population. See Attachment B for roles of responsibilities of CASPER. 3. Exercising and training of CASPER and medical teams for a postearthquake event. Based on HAZUS loss estimation, all of the 12 hospitals that serve Charleston, Dorchester, and Berkeley counties to include the two (2) emergency care facilities will be damaged and unable to provide extensive medical services to casualties. 4. Identifying medical resources (public, private, and state agencies/organizations) that will be immediately available to support earthquake response. 5. Incorporating all medical resources such as Strategic National Pharmaceutical Stockpile (SNPS) into earthquake planning and response. Annex 8-4

3 Annex 8 (ESF-8) 6. Preparing transportation requirements and coordinating with ESF Identifying medical facilities throughout the state capable of a mass casualty response. ESF-8 will develop strategies to transport patients to health facilities outside of the disaster area. All transportation routes (land, sea, or air) will be considered to transport patients. 8. Preparing plans to integrate the NDMS into the state s disaster response. National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) consists of the Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT), the Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team (DMORT), Medical Support Unit, and Mental Health and Stress Management teams. 9. Utilizing non-traditional facilities such as hotels or containerized medical units to treat disaster victims in the Operational Areas. 10. Coordinating with ESF-19 to provide additional care for disaster victims. The unit consists of physicians, nurses, paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), Public Health Technicians, Bioenvironmental Technicians and Engineers, Dentists, and a Veterinarian Public Health Officer. D. Crisis counseling and psychological first aid will be needed following a strong earthquake. ESF-8 will immediately activate its plan for providing crisis counseling into the Operational Areas and other areas of the state as requested. E. Deceased Identification and Mortuary Services 1. The use of existing morgues and forensic personnel will be coordinated with ESF-8. ESF-8 will plan for a temporary morgue in each Operational Area. 2. Resources for mortuary services will be coordinated with EMAC and the DMORT. F. Public Health and Sanitation 1. Food being donated and purchased will be inspected for possible contamination. ESF-8 will coordinate with ESF-11 to review embargo procedures for contaminated food. 2. ESF-8 will coordinate with Federal ESF-8 to implement public health plans to mitigate the spread of diseases.
