Triage by Resource Allocation for INpatients (TRAIN)

The TRAIN tool is used to help determine the level of transport required for evacuation based on resource utilization.  The TRAIN tool can be used to rapidly assess potential patients for discharge when surge capacity is required and to enable expedient resource requests from other agencies.
