Earlier this week, our team gathered at our Baton Rouge office for an After-Action Review (AAR) of Louisiana Ambulance Alliance’s (LAA) deployment to Florida to assist with Hurricane Dorian relief. AARs give our team an opportunity to thoroughly discuss surge events from start to finish and are key in reflecting on strengths and opportunities for improvement.
“After Action Reviews are important because they allow us to sit down and evaluate what we did well and what we need to improve upon,” explained Rob Daughdril, LAA’s Emergency Preparedness Coordinator.
The meeting covered unit registration, demobilization, assets and supplies, support staff and communication. “We are looking forward to improving our operating procedures based on past experiences,” added Donna Newchurch, LAA CEO.
LAA prides itself on timely and effective response and AARs ensure the organization continues to exceed expectations. As the 2019 Hurricane Season continues, LAA remains on standby.
