Residential Health Care Facilities
The Residential Health Care Facility (RHCF) Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan Review Program was introduced as a result of state legislation requiring certain health care facilities to prepare and annually update a comprehensive emergency management plan (CEMP). The CEMP serves facilities to be adequately prepared to handle internal/external emergencies within their facilities and ensure the safety and well-being of their residents.
State law requires that the CEMPs be reviewed and approved by the local Office of Emergency Management (OEM).
Facility administrators for residential health care facilities located in Miami-Dade County must submit their Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) to the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) for review and approval on an annual basis. Guidance and/or training on plan development can be provided to new administrators requesting information on plan development.
