South Peninsula Hospital will be conducting an evacuation drill on Tuesday, June 25, from 9 a.m.-noon. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this drill might cause.

It is the responsibility of South Peninsula Hospital to care for our patients no matter what the situation might be; therefore it is important that our employees practice worse case scenarios so we are best prepared for any situation.

Our drill will exercise our evacuation plan, including the use of recently purchased med-sleds designed for safe, quick evacuation of patients to the lower level of the hospital. We were fortunate to receive grant funds from the State of Alaska Hospital Preparedness Office for these purchases.  Volunteers from the community will be serving as “patients” for the drill. 

Please join us in your own home in getting prepared for the worst case scenario. A complete list of what to put in your disaster kit, including important contact information, financial information and a list of all your medications can be found at the FEMA website www.ready.gov.
