As a desk-bound and practical exercise scenario, the readiness and response methods of the hospital teams against the earthquake and fire that may occur after the earthquake in our province were successfully implemented. The scenario was planned as an earthquake that occurred in one of the inpatient wards of our hospital and the intervention of the teams in charge in the disaster plan of our hospital as a result of the injury and fire that occurred after the fire. The teams in charge of the hospital disaster plan, which convened shortly after the earthquake and fire, were divided into groups as operations, planning, logistics, public relations, inter-institutional coordination, occupational safety specialist, medical ethics committee and finance, under the chairmanship of the hospital disaster manager, and developed strategies for minute-by-minute developments and ensured the continuation of the hospital's services.
