Department & Unit Disaster Sub-Plan Templates

VUMC departments and units are required to develop and maintain area-specific emergency preparedness sub-plans. The purpose of the sub-plan is to outline an emergency communication plan and area specific emergency preparedness information for staff.

The Microsoft Office WORD templates provided below can be used to facilitate your area's sub-plan development.  Login required. Requires Login

The unit personnel call tree must be updated annually.

The unit sub-plan, consistent with other VUMC Policies and Procedures, is to be reviewed at least once every three years. 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.
