The ICDP has several focus areas. They include:
Providing disaster training for “first responders” (police, fire, EMS) and other healthcare providers. Training on disaster-related fundamentals encourages a well rehearsed and coordinated response.
To establish, improve, conduct research and practice mass casualty care methodology.
Serve as a center for medical triage. The ICDP can serve as a casualty collection point for evaluation and distribution to other acute care facilities as available or appropriate.
Provide acute care surge capacity that can be activated in the event that hospital demand resulting from a disaster situation outstrips the regional supply.
