Department & Unit Disaster Sub-Plan Templates

Annual Review

The unit call tree/staff contact phone list must be updated annually. The entire unit sub-plan, consistent with other VUMC Policies and Procedures, is to be reviewed annually. These documents are to be maintained in a red binder in each unit and department.  If a red binder is not available, use the red front cover with spine insert.


If you have any questions about how to develop and maintain your disaster sub-plan, please contact Jeff Mangrum, the VUMC Department of Emergency Preparedness Director, by email ( or phone (615-343-3189), or call VEHS at 615-322-2057.
