Hospice of Westchester (HOW) recently hosted a recognition ceremony for several community partners who aided the nonprofit organization in an active emergency management drill, evacuating the sisters of the Convent of St. John the Baptist in Purchase in November 2017. The celebration, which took place on January 11 at HOW’s offices in White Plains, acknowledged the Harrison Police Department, West Harrison Fire Department, Harrison Emergency Medical Services and Empress Ambulance, all of which assisted HOW in the drill.

The drill was in response to new Medicare and regulatory requirements regarding emergency management, and the implementation of significant standards which require the conduct of two drills.
