More family assistance center (FAC) tools and resources are available to you! Two years of planning by Public Health – Seattle & King County and the King County Healthcare Coalition generated a number of new templates, tools and sample protocols to help with FAC planning. These tools, developed as part of the Regional Catastrophic Planning Grant, are now available on the Advanced Practice Center website and include:
• Partner roles and responsibilities matrix.
• Checklists for activation and demobilization.
• Multiple documents related to the different functions of and services available in a FAC, with an eye for cultural and religious considerations.
• A family resource packet, to be given to family members upon arrival at the FAC, filled with information on the FAC, services available, and forms to complete.
