Abstract
In 2003, the Utah State Department of Health received funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration to develop a medical surge plan to increase the number of available hospital beds in the state by 1250 beds, including 125 beds for burn or critical trauma patients. A prior article discussed the planning procedures and process. This article describes the major components of the plan, including analysis of threats, direction and control, activation and system response; communications; and critical issues.
