Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) Reviews

Pasco County Emergency Management is responsible for reviewing and approving Emergency Management Plans for licensed healthcare facilities in the County to include:

The facilities are required by the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) to have an approved Emergency Management Plan to renew their license annually. Florida Statute 252, the Florida Administrative Code, County requirements, and the AHCA Planning Criteria are utilized to support the approval of plans.

Florida Governor Rick Scott has directed AHCA and the Florida Department of Elder Affairs to issue emergency rules (58A-5.036 and 59A-4.1265) to keep Floridians safe in health care facilities during emergencies. Pursuant to the emergency action on September 16, 2017, within the next 60 days, all assisted living facilities (ALFs) and nursing homes must obtain ample resources, including a generator and the appropriate amount of fuel, to sustain operations and maintain comfortable temperatures for at least 96-hours following a power outage. This is based on standards already in place at all hospitals in Florida.
