Date:3/17/2009

HELENA, Ala., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- BCHCM, a nonprofit organization founded in 1978, proudly announces the new Certified Healthcare Emergency Professional (CHEP) designation. BCHCM developed the CHEP credential to recognize the need for qualified disaster response and emergency management professionals in healthcare settings and organizations. CHEP professionals can help lead the way by helping develop realistic emergency management and action response plans. CHEP professionals understand the importance of coordinating all phases of healthcare emergency with community officials and other outside agencies including state and federal entities.

The Board issued the first credentials on January 31, 2009 to more than 50 highly qualified candidates. CHEP professionals come from a variety of healthcare backgrounds including emergency management, nursing, administration, risk, safety, emergency medicine, and facility management. The Board strongly believes that CHEP professionals will be very effective in coordinating the necessary components of any emergency program including planning, response, mitigation, and recovery efforts.

Certification candidates must document relevant experience and education. Candidates formally appointed by their organizations as the Emergency Manager or Coordinator can qualify to sit for the exam. Other candidates for certification must document relevant emergency and disaster response experience in a healthcare setting. All candidates must achieve an acceptable score on the closed book CHEP Examination. The CHEP exam focuses on topics such as program design, accreditation standards, compliance regulations, incident command systems, emergency communications, organizational cultures, NFPA 1600, fire & egress, hazardous materials response, hazard vulnerability analysis, system methods, pandemic, terrorism, and natural disasters. According to James Tweedy, Board Executive Director, "The CHE
