Brevard County Emergency Management Healthcare Plans

Healthcare CEMP

The Residential Health Care Facility (RHCF) Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) Review Program was introduced as a result of Florida State Legislature, requiring certain health care facilities to prepare and annually update a comprehensive emergency management plan.  These facilities include:

State law requires that the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) develop and adopt minimum criteria for the CEMP. The law also requires that the CEMPs be reviewed and approved by Brevard County Emergency Management (BCEM). 

The AHCA has a local office in Orlando.  The agency's contact information is as follows:
          400 West Robinson St. Suite 309
          Orlando, Florida  32801
          Telephone number: 407-420-2502

Information on Submitting a CEMP

Submitting a new plan or revision is easy. Criteria Documents are provided by clicking on the bulleted list above to assist with the development and submission of Comprehensive Emergency Management Plans. Use the checklist/crosswalk to ensure your submission is organized and complete. Email all required documentation to:

AHCA Criteria Crosswalk 

The crosswalk documents identify the minimum criteria to be used when developing CEMPs for residential health care facilities. The crosswalk serves as the required plan format for the CEMP, and will also serve as the compliance review document for BCEM upon submission for review and approval pursuant to Chapter 252, Florida Statutes (F.S.). These criteria satisfy the basic emergency management requirements of 400, Part II, Florida Statutes, but are not designed to provide specific emergency medical planning guidance. 

Review Fee

Beginning November 1, 2016, all healthcare CEMPs will be charged a minimum review fee of $62.50 based on two hours at $31.25 per hour (FL Ch. 27P-20). This minimum charge is necessary to fully cover the review time spent on CEMPs including, but not limited to: administrative and data entry work, database and technology support, binder and update packet processing, training and consulting to facilities that occurs beyond time spent reviewing a plan.
