These consist of bomb alerts, fire evacuation and first aid. These procedures are produced to give help to everyone at the place of the emergency. Everyone, especially adults must be aware of what to follow during an emergency to ensure everyone stays safe.
Residents will be taken to an evacuation centre run by the local council. Staff should take spare clothes but essentionals such as food, drink and bedding will be provided, essential things such as medication and care items such as feeder beakers and baby bottles should also be taken if possible.

National Response Plan Howard L. Hayes Saint Leo University Abstract Why is it necessary for our country to have an effective emergency plan in place? Why does it matter how the country responds to emergencies when every part of our country, including cities and states, face emergency situations on a daily basis all over? Some are bad to worse, and some horrific to deadly. Well, this paper explains the importance of the National Response Plan and why it is necessary for our country to have it in place. It explores several articles that have been published to show the results on the effectiveness and response of the National Response Plan. The National Response Framework, previously called The National Response Plan, is a plan that the United States put in effect to organize the way the country and the community handles attacks, disasters, as well as all events looked at as an emergency. The Response Plan relays and describes all the information in order to avoid catastrophic damages and to protect and save lives. The plan focuses on how the country as a whole can work together to prepare for damaging events. Morover, the plan doesn 't always seem to be effective as it is expected to be. Issues arose at the time it is most needed, which causes necessary changes to take effect immediately. Sometimes the damage is already done and that could be due to economic collapse, being unprepared, and failure to respond appropriately. The National Response Framework replaced the National
Do we have a contingency plan in an Emergency? Have we tested it? Is the information current?
There should be a contingency plan for anything no matter how possible. For example, the space shuttle had no less than 100 emergency landing sites throughout the world. This contingency plan did not have one plan with a backup plan it had a contingency plan and each contingency plan had another. No possible eventuality should ever be foolishly ruled out.
In this essay, federal and state requirements for building evacuations (preparation of and conducting) are compared, with those of applicable NFPA guidelines. Best practices for conducting evacuations are reviewed to determine what applicability the best practices have on continuity of operations within my organization. The essential elements of emergency response were evaluated in three categories; the written program, specific procedures related to emergency response, and training. After evaluation of both the NFPA guidelines and OSHA standards, it was determined that both should be used to develop an emergency action plan.
Bill King, expert on evacuation techniques, in his editorial “Houston’s Mayor Was Right to Not Evacuate” (Aug. 28, 2017) argues that Houston’s Mayor Sylvester Turner decision to not order mandatory evacuations during the hurricane proved to be the best choice. He develops his argument by first establishing the destructive power of hurricanes by referencing the “disastrous evacuation” during Hurricane Rita which resulted in daylong traffic jams and 130 deaths; second, by affirming his credibility: asserting his involvement on a governor’s commission board that studied the errors of current evacuation techniques; third, by including the fact that flooding from rainfall is highly unpredictable, which means the areas that will be flooded are unpredictable
Is PPE or SCBA necessary, is a cordon necessary for a bomb squad, how far from the threat do we need to evacuate individuals, is a decontamination team going to be necessary, etc. With the detailed information that is received, first responders can begin to put in motion their standard operating
Maurer and Smith (2013) explain the order of evacuation, first are the physically disabled, the blind and deaf. I would make sure there were enough ambulances and nurses to care for the victims by contacting RCMC for staff for their external disaster policy. Next up are the mentally challenged persons and seniors because they may need extra time to leave the area. Young children would be next because their immune systems are not fully developed and then the medically dependent with respiratory or cardiac problems. I would then make sure my interpreters are ready for the people who speak little english.
Everyone who is not infected needs to evacuate the city by going to isolated areas. Transportation may not be easy to find, but the city will supply the non infected with sanitary buses. This way of transportation will be available for the first group of people waiting to evacuate. If you are close to a place of isolation or a field, the next best option will be by foot. By foot may be a quicker option for some who live in rural areas. Airlifting is reserved for those who are handicapped or injured; hence, it is the quickest way possible to evacuate the city. Airlifting could also be used for the wealthy to escape infected areas.
In some instances, COPs may find themselves in dangerous situations where there may be many casualties or situations that my demand that the medical staff needs to protect themselves as much as they need to protect their patients- the COPs. As much as evacuation is essential, there is need to provide adequate information through information sharing systems. This can be classified under their preventive role in a bid to approach the job in a proactive manner. Through this the COPs may have basic and fundamental knowledge of what to do in certain
In this study, the fields of emergency management, business continuity, strategic planning and scenario futuring were critically analyzed with a goal of developing an integrated strategic contingency planning model. This model will assist organizations in bringing their contingency planning program to a strategic level. Contingency planning can be fully integrated with day-to-day business processes if a new mindset is promulgated in the organization. Contingency planning no longer needs to be an isolated, specialized
