Each EMS Regional Council has identified specific geographic areas to monitor hospital yellow alert frequency and duration on a daily basis. These areas consist of the following groupings of 24 hour Emergency departments or special services.
The graphs for Region III and V are provided to show the daily yellow alert demand based on the following formula:
Total Number of daily minutes on yellow alert
Number of hospitals*24 (hours)*60 *minutes
Thresholds for regional daily percent and the consecutive days at or above that level have been predetermined for phases of voluntary and/or mandatory compliance actions. Available historical trends have been included for reference.
