AN EMERGENCY RESPONSE PLAN
MAKING A CALL
Right away, during any emergency, make the call to 911. Contact local authorities. When you make your initial call to any public emergency service, wherever you may locate be or whomever you’re with, do what you can to provide details with a calm and level-headed demeanor.
Dispatch on the other line is there to assist. However, they will not be able to establish the situation with a frantic caller. You may be required to listen clearly to dispatch from time to time; they may provide helpful tips and or rules that will accommodate your current accident, environmental, or emergency situation.
Protective actions for life safety include:
Evacuation – One of the most important things anyone can do when it comes to emergency disaster preparedness is having an evacuation plan. Some disasters can be severe enough that they require residents to leave their homes and head for safer areas.Typically, with an evacuation plan in place, the day or two warning often given should be enough to suffice and help you reach a safe area. If immediate evacuation is necessary, planning could make a huge difference.
Sheltering – There are some disasters that can hit, and when they do, they may require individuals to take shelter at various locations. Typically, this means the families must stay at a location with others outside of the hazardous zone.Typically, the individuals inside the area where the disaster is being told specific shelter locations where they can go to stay safe. Make sure you recognize shelter locations so you can act quickly should a disaster strike.
Shelter-In-Place – Some emergencies do not give residents enough warning to put their evacuation plans into action. However, there is another option: shelter-in-place. Some residents may have home shelters that can prevent them from being harmed in the event of a disaster. If you have a shelter-in-place, think of the things you may need and what items to stock up on. Also, make sure that there are barricades to help protect you and anyone else in the shelter. Your shelter should be able to withstand some disasters. Shelter-in-place can help with airborne hazards as well.
