Federal health inspector

The federal health inspector acts as the local representative of the FPS HFCSE for emergency medical assistance. He/she is in direct contact with the governor, the mayor, the health professionals and the citizens. The federal inspector is assisted by an expert incident and crisis manager (ICM), a psychosocial manager (PSM) and a 112 medical directorate team. This team consists of a medical director, a deputy medical director and nurse regulators (see ‘Organisation’ section). Together, they form a ‘Federal Health Inspectorate Cluster’. The clusters are tasked with the following:

  • supervising the proper organisation of ‘Emergency Medical Assistance’, whereby the quality of the activities is checked;
  • coordinating the medical component of emergency and intervention plans at a provincial and municipal level;
  • local implementation of federal disaster plans (nuclear plan, health plan, heat wave plan, etc.)
