Working Together To Keep Our Community Safe

Coming together is a beginning.

Keeping together is progress.

Stanton Health Center conducted an Emergency Preparedness Drill/Training for the facility which included local entities including; Stanton County Public Power, Stanton Public Schools, Stanton County Emergency Management, Stanton Fire & Rescue, Stanton County Sheriff’s Department along with Asera Care Hospice and Stanton Health Center Employees. The training is required federally to ensure that we have a program in place in case of a disaster. We will be doing this yearly and we appreciate everyone’s participation.

On December 21, 2018 we had a “Facility Explosion” Live Exercise from 1-3 p.m. The event occurred within our Wing 2 & Therapy Gym areas.  The scenario focused on one of our propane tanks exploding causing electrical/ main structural damage and fires.  Numerous staff and bystanders needed immediate rescue and medical treatment from the explosion and the severe exposure of winter within the damaged and surrounding areas that threaten the safety of the entire facility.

Since this was a drill we wanted to make it as real as possible. Lights were out, a smoke machine was used, there was debris strung throughout the therapy room and Dan even had dead wires hanging from the ceiling.

Staff along with Fire/Rescue assisted finding “patients” and getting them the care they needed.

Thank you again to all that helped make this training a success!!
