There are also professional organizations for emergency managers, such as the National Emergency Management Association and the International Association of Emergency Managers. Sheltering If Album) tornado warning is broadcast, a distinct warning signal should be sounded and everyone should move to shelter in the strongest part of the building. Pearl Jam released all of the albums in record stores as well as through its fan club. January 19, Pearl Jam discography. February 4, On-line sales of items such as survival food, medical supplies and heirloom seeds allow people to stock basements with cases of food and drinks with 25 year shelf lives, sophisticated medical kits and seeds that are guaranteed to sprout even after years of storage.
The objective is to be prepared to:. Development of the plan begins with a vulnerability assessment. The results of the study will show:. At the planning stage, it is important that several groups be asked to participate. Among these groups, the health and safety committee can provide valuable input and a means of wider worker involvement.
Appropriate municipal officials should also be consulted since control may be exercised by the local government in major emergencies and additional resources may be available. Communication, training and periodic drills will ensure adequate performance if the plan must be carried out.
Although emergencies by definition are sudden events, their occurrence can be predicted with some degree of certainty. The first step is to find which hazards pose a threat to any specific enterprise. When a list of hazards is made, records of past incidents and occupational experience are not the only sources of valuable information.
Since major emergencies are rare events, knowledge of both technological chemical or physical and natural hazards can be broadened by consulting with fire departments, insurance companies, engineering consultants, and government departments. Areas where flammables, explosives, or chemicals are used or stored should be considered as the most likely place for a technological hazard emergency to occur. The possibility of one event triggering others must be considered.
An explosion may start a fire and cause structural failure while an earthquake might initiate many of the technological events listed above. Since a sizable document will likely result, the plan should provide staff members with written instructions about their particular emergency duties.
The following are examples of the parts of an emergency plan. These elements may not cover every situation in every workplace but serve they are provided as a general guideline when writing a workplace specific plan:.
The objective is a brief summary of the purpose of the plan; that is, to reduce human injury and damage to property and environment in an emergency. It also specifies those staff members who may put the plan into action. The objective identifies clearly who these staff members are since the normal chain of command cannot always be available on short notice. At least one of them must be on the site at all times when the premises are occupied. The extent of authority of these personnel must be clearly indicated.
One individual should be appointed and trained to act as Emergency Co-ordinator as well as a "back-up" co-ordinator. However, personnel on site during an emergency are key in ensuring that prompt and efficient action is taken to minimize loss.
In some cases it may be possible to recall off-duty employees to help, but the critical initial decisions usually must be made immediately. Specific duties, responsibilities, authority, and resources must be clearly defined.
Among the responsibilities that must be assigned are:. This list of responsibilities should be completed using the previously developed summary of countermeasures for each emergency situation. In organizations operating on reduced staff during some shifts, some personnel must assume extra responsibilities during emergencies.

Well the cover art is sort of cute… File under: During the same eight day period, the Fraser and Vancouver Coastal Health Authorities registered deaths from all causes and ages , as compared to an average of during the equivalent calendar period for the preceding years between Arrange an out-of-area phone contact person.
Teach family members these numbers. Keep this and other emergency phone numbers with or near each telephone. Be sure you have a written list of the telephone number, too, as cell phone batteries may not last. Add additional food items and supplies for pets to your kit. Your pet items should include bedding, water dish, food dish, leash, medications, food, and water.
Get a portable radio and extra batteries for your emergency kit. Hand crank radios are a great alternative to battery operated ones. Or be on the safe side and have both. In the interface, structures and vegetation are close enough that a building fire may ignite the adjacent forested area trees and vegetation or a wildfire may spread to nearby homes and buildings.
Learn about the hazards in your community. Do a home hazard hunt to make your home safer. Secure appliances and heavy furniture and move beds away from overhead objects like heavy mirrors and windows.
Prepare a first-aid kit appropriate to your level of first aid training. Include prescription medications, eyeglasses, bandages, sterile gauze pads, tape, scissors, tweezers, antibiotic ointment, hydrogen peroxide and other items such as over-the-counter pain pills. The accompanying wind caused hydro blackouts throughout Greater Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and along the Sunshine Coast.
Blocked culverts and plugged storm drains caused extensive damage to surrounding areas. One 17 year old drowned while trying to cross a creek; 4 people went missing and 5 people were killed due to the washing out of a bridge.
Give every family member specific safety tasks to do in an emergency. For example, designate one person to be in charge of turning off electricity, one to collect the emergency container, one to track down family members and make sure people with disabilities or special health needs are provided for.
Make sure someone is also delegated to looking after any pets. The slide completely destroyed two homes in North Vancouver. One person died in the slide and nearly homes were evacuated. Identify safe places in your home, on your property and in your neighbourhood. Know that your community may set up a reception centre for evacuees during an emergency.
Information on their location would come from officials via radio, television, website notices burnaby. During August of there were forest fires burning in British Columbia.
Approximately 10, people were evacuated, 42, hectares of forest burnt, 36 properties were damaged, and livestock losses were reported. Identify a family meeting place or neighbourhood safe assembly area. This gathering place should be away from home within walking distance from your home.
The band, and especially frontman Eddie Vedder, have been vocal supporters of the pro-choice movement. In , Spin printed an article by Vedder, entitled "Reclamation", which detailed his views on abortion. As members of Rock the Vote and Vote for Change , the band has encouraged voter registration and participation in United States elections. Vedder was outspoken in support of Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader in ,  and Pearl Jam played a series of concerts on the Vote for Change tour in October , supporting the candidacy of John Kerry for U.
We have to get a new administration in. Vedder sometimes comments on politics between songs, often to criticize U. In the beginning of the second encore Vedder invited Iraq war veteran Tomas Young, the subject of the documentary Body of War , onto the stage to urge an end to the war. Pearl Jam has performed numerous benefit concerts in aid of charities.
In , Pearl Jam was named Planet Defenders by Rock The Earth for their environmental activism and their large-scale efforts to decrease their own carbon emissions.

November Entertainment Weekly. The actions taken in the initial minutes of an emergency are critical. A prompt warning to employees to evacuate, shelter or lockdown can save lives.
A call for help to public emergency services that provides full and accurate information will help the dispatcher send the right responders and equipment. An employee trained to administer first aid or perform CPR can be lifesaving. Action by employees with knowledge of building and process systems can help control a leak and minimize damage to the facility and the environment. The first step when developing an emergency response plan is to conduct a risk assessment to identify potential emergency scenarios.
An understanding of what can happen will enable you to determine resource requirements and to develop plans and procedures to prepare your business. The emergency plan should be consistent with your performance objectives. At the very least, every facility should develop and implement an emergency plan for protecting employees, visitors, contractors and anyone else in the facility. Lockdown is protective action when faced with an act of violence.
When an emergency occurs, the first priority is always life safety. The second priority is the stabilization of the incident. There are many actions that can be taken to stabilize an incident and minimize potential damage. First aid and CPR by trained employees can save lives. Use of fire extinguishers by trained employees can extinguish a small fire. Containment of a small chemical spill and supervision of building utilities and systems can minimize damage to a building and help prevent environmental damage.
Some severe weather events can be forecast hours before they arrive, providing valuable time to protect a facility. A plan should be established and resources should be on hand, or quickly, available to prepare a facility. The plan should also include a process for damage assessment, salvage, protection of undamaged property and cleanup following an incident. These actions to minimize further damage and business disruption are examples of property conservation.
Guidance for the development of an emergency response plan can be found in this step. Build your emergency response plan using this worksheet. When there is a hazard within a building such as a fire or chemical spill, occupants within the building should be evacuated or relocated to safety. Other incidents such as a bomb threat or receipt of a suspicious package may also require evacuation. If a tornado warning is broadcast, everyone should be moved to the strongest part of the building and away from exterior glass.
Your emergency plan should include these protective actions. If you are a tenant in multi-tenanted building, coordinate planning with the building manager.
It focuses on preventing the human hazard, primarily from potential natural disasters or terrorist attacks. Preventive measures are taken on both the domestic and international levels, designed to provide permanent protection from disasters. In January , Governments adopted a year global plan for natural disaster risk reduction called the Hyogo Framework. Preventing or reducing the impacts of disasters on our communities is a key focus for emergency management efforts today.
Prevention and mitigation also help reduce the financial costs of disaster response and recovery. Public Safety Canada is working with provincial and territorial governments and stakeholders to promote disaster prevention and mitigation using a risk-based and all-hazards approach. Disaster mitigation measures are those that eliminate or reduce the impacts and risks of hazards through proactive measures taken before an emergency or disaster occurs.
Preventive or mitigation measures take different forms for different types of disasters. In earthquake prone areas, these preventive measures might include structural changes such as the installation of an earthquake valve to instantly shut off the natural gas supply, seismic retrofits of property, and the securing of items inside a building. The latter may include the mounting of furniture, refrigerators , water heaters and breakables to the walls, and the addition of cabinet latches.
In areas prone to prolonged electricity black-outs installation of a generator ensures continuation of electrical service. The construction of storm cellars and fallout shelters are further examples of personal mitigative actions. On a national level, governments might implement large scale mitigation measures. One of the best known examples of investment in disaster mitigation is the Red River Floodway. Since then, the floodway has been used over 20 times. Preparedness focuses on preparing equipment and procedures for use when a disaster occurs.
This equipment and these procedures can be used to reduce vulnerability to disaster, to mitigate the impacts of a disaster or to respond more efficiently in an emergency.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA has set out a basic four-stage vision of preparedness flowing from mitigation to preparedness to response to recovery and back to mitigation in a circular planning process.
FEMA also operates a Building Science Branch that develops and produces multi-hazard mitigation guidance that focuses on creating disaster-resilient communities to reduce loss of life and property. Some guidelines for household preparedness have been put online by the State of Colorado, on the topics of water, food, tools, and so on.
Emergency preparedness can be difficult to measure. Local Emergency Planning Committees LEPCs are required by the United States Environmental Protection Agency under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act to develop an emergency response plan, review the plan at least annually, and provide information about chemicals in the community to local citizens.
According to the EPA, "Many LEPCs have expanded their activities beyond the requirements of EPCRA, encouraging accident prevention and risk reduction, and addressing homeland security in their communities", and the Agency offers advice on how to evaluate the effectiveness of these committees. Preparedness measures can take many forms ranging from focusing on individual people, locations or incidents to broader, government-based "all hazard" planning.
Business continuity planning encourages businesses to have a Disaster Recovery Plan. Community- and faith-based organizations mitigation efforts promote field response teams and inter-agency planning.
School-based response teams cover everything from live shooters to gas leaks and nearby bank robberies. Family preparedness for disaster is fairly unusual. Disasters take a variety of forms to include earthquakes , tsunamis or regular structure fires. That a disaster or emergency is not large scale in terms of population or acreage impacted or duration does not make it any less of a disaster for the people or area impacted and much can be learned about preparedness from so-called small disasters.
What is useful in an emergency is often also useful in everyday life. Some organizations blend these various levels. For example, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement has a webpage on disaster training  as well as offering training on basic preparedness such as Cardiopulmonary resuscitation and First Aid.
Other non-profits such as Team Rubicon bring specific groups of people into disaster preparedness and response operations. The basic theme behind preparedness is to be ready for an emergency and there are a number of different variations of being ready based on an assessment of what sort of threats exist. FEMA recommends that everyone have a three-day survival kit for their household.
Along similar lines, but not exactly the same, CDC has its own list for a proper disaster supply kit. Children are a special population when considering Emergency preparedness and many resources are directly focused on supporting them. SAMHSA has list of tips for talking to children during infectious disease outbreaks, to include being a good listener, encouraging children to ask questions and modeling self-care by setting routines, eating healthy meals, getting enough sleep and taking deep breaths to handle stress.
Preparation helps; when people feel prepared, they cope better and so do children. To help people assess what threats might be in order to augment their emergency supplies or improve their disaster response skills, FEMA has published a booklet called the "Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment Guide.
In this guide, FEMA breaks down hazards into three categories: Natural, technological and human caused and notes that each hazard should be assessed for both its likelihood and its significance.
According to FEMA, "Communities should consider only those threats and hazards that could plausibly occur" and "Communities should consider only those threats and hazards that would have a significant effect on them. Not all preparedness efforts and discussions involve the government or established NGOs like the Red Cross. Emergency preparation discussions are active on the internet, with many blogs and websites dedicated to discussing various aspects of preparedness. On-line sales of items such as survival food, medical supplies and heirloom seeds allow people to stock basements with cases of food and drinks with 25 year shelf lives, sophisticated medical kits and seeds that are guaranteed to sprout even after years of storage.
One group of people who put a lot of effort in disaster preparations is called Doomsday Preppers. This subset of preparedness-minded people often share a belief that the FEMA or Red Cross emergency preparation suggestions and training are not extensive enough.
These items include:. Emergency preparedness goes beyond immediate family members. For many people, pets are an integral part of their families and emergency preparation advice includes them as well. It is not unknown for pet owners to die while trying to rescue their pets from a fire or from drowning. Emergency preparedness also includes more than physical items and skill-specific training.
Psychological preparedness is also a type of emergency preparedness and specific mental health preparedness resources are offered for mental health professionals by organizations such as the Red Cross. CDC has a website devoted to coping with a disaster or traumatic event. Sometimes emergency supplies are kept in what is called a Bug-out bag.
While FEMA does not actually use the term "Bug out bag," calling it instead some variation of a "Go Kit," the idea of having emergency items in a quickly accessible place is common to both FEMA and CDC, though on-line discussions of what items a "bug out bag" should include sometimes cover items such as firearms and great knives that are not specifically suggested by FEMA or CDC.
Whether fleeing a burning building or hastily packing a car to escape an impending hurricane, flood or dangerous chemical release, rapid departure from a home or workplace environment is always a possibility and FEMA suggests having a Family Emergency Plan for such occasions.
Along with the contact information, FEMA suggests having well-understood local gathering points if a house must be evacuated quickly to avoid the dangers of re-reentering a burning home. If family members spend a significant amount of time in a specific location, such as at work or school, FEMA suggests learning the emergency preparation plans for those places.
Like children, people with disabilities and other special needs have special emergency preparation needs. While "disability" has a specific meaning for specific organizations such as collecting Social Security benefits,  for the purposes of emergency preparedness, the Red Cross uses the term in a broader sense to include people with physical, medical, sensor or cognitive disabilities or the elderly and other special needs populations.
FEMA notes that long term power outages can cause damage beyond the original disaster that can be mitigated with emergency generators or other power sources to provide an Emergency power system. Emergency preparedness does not stop at home or at school. FEMA cautions that emergencies happen while people are travelling as well  and provides guidance around emergency preparedness for a range travelers to include commuters,  Commuter Emergency Plan and holiday travelers.
Items specific to an emergency include:. In addition to emergency supplies and training for various situations, FEMA offers advice on how to mitigate disasters. The Agency gives instructions on how to retrofit a home to minimize hazards from a Flood , to include installing a Backflow prevention device , anchoring fuel tanks and relocating electrical panels.
Given the explosive danger posed by natural gas leaks, Ready. The response phase of an emergency may commence with Search and Rescue but in all cases the focus will quickly turn to fulfilling the basic humanitarian needs of the affected population. This assistance may be provided by national or international agencies and organizations.
