All Facilities Letter (AFL) Summary

CMS revised the emergency preparedness checklist information for health care facility planning to provide more detailed guidance about patient/resident tracking, supplies, and collaboration.

CMS issued Survey and Certification (S&C) letter S&C-14-12 on February 28, 2014, which updated the S&C Emergency Preparedness Checklist – Recommended Tool for Effective Health Care Facility Planning. The updated checklist can be found at the S&C Emergency Preparedness website:

Updates and new documents will be posted to the website as they become available.
