Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
The following is a text alternative description for the Tranquil Terminus Kadlec SOT video.
Dr. Kadlec is shown standing in a darkened, nondescript room with the HHS and ASPR logos illuminated in blue lighting in the background. Dr. Kadlec begins to speak and the video continues this way the entire time.
Tranquil Terminus is the largest patient movement exercise in HHS history. What we are testing here, moving patients who are seriously ill or injured, that's fundamental to our mission of saving lives and protecting Americans in a disaster.
At ASPR, we coordinate patient evacuation. Whether it's from events like the 2017 hurricanes, or moving American patients home to the United States because of infectious disease epidemics like the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Transporting patients with servere, highly infectious diseases can be particularly challenging. We practice these types of operations so we're prepared to help Americans when disaster strikes.
The camera fades to a graphic with a gray background and the HHS and ASPR logos. There is no audio over this graphic.
