Emergency reporting

Emergency Reporting

Evacuation & Shelter Training


Evacuation shelter training1

Evacuation & Shelter Training

  • TYPES OF ALARMS

  • Smoke detectors: detects smoke and activates alarm

  • Sprinkler System: detects high levels of heat

  • Strobe lights installed for the hearing impaired


Evacuation shelter training2

Evacuation & Shelter Training

  • OTHER FIRE DEVICES

  • Fire extinguisher: in all common spaces and near the stairwells

  • Fire doors: Specially tested doors that are normally closed or close upon fire alarm system activation.

  • Exit signs: follow direction in which arrow is pointing or location of sign


Evacuation shelter training3

Evacuation & Shelter Training

  • EMERGENCY SITUATIONS

  • Any and all emergencies must be handled immediately.

  • Personnel: Emergency situations with personnel, either hurt during the evacuation process, or a medical emergency, must be called into 9-911. Although the Emergency Response personnel could already be on scene at the building, they may not be aware any other emergencies within the building, so call and report the situation. (Use walkie talkies or cell phones, if available).

  • Before exiting a closed door, feel for heat with the back of your hand, if it is warm or hot do not open, use alternate exit.


Evacuation shelter training4

Evacuation & Shelter Training

  • BADGES, VESTS AND WALKIE TALKIES

  • Visibility: During emergencies, building occupants need to recognize team members within their building as well as buildings that they may be visiting.

  • Badges – Provided by DEPC, and identifies each team member position. Can be attached with current NIH badge. Bright red in color for quick eye catching attention. (no cost to IC)


Evacuation shelter training5

Evacuation & Shelter Training

  • Vests – Used by the Occupant Emergency Coordinators, (OEC). They help with quick identification by not only by team members or building occupants, but also to be identified by the Emergency Response Personnel. Mesh vests are lightweight, comfortable, and expandable.


Evacuation shelter training6

Evacuation & Shelter Training

  • SAFETY AND THE EVACUATION PROCESS

  • DO NOT use elevators in case of emergency – elevator shaft and a moving elevator causes excellent fuel for combustion

  • Remember when evacuating the building, if crossing a busy road or exiting across a driveway, be safe and look before crossing.

  • Report safety violations immediately to Randy Williamson (363-9225) via work order.

    • Door knobs loose on emergency exits

    • Emergency exit lighting not illuminated

    • Boxes or equipment blocking exits/hallways


Evacuation shelter training7

Evacuation & Shelter Training

  • STAIRWAY EDUCATION

  • Stairwells in buildings with 4 or more stories have a protection factor of 2 hours; less than 4 floors will have a safety factor of 1hour with the doors closed.

  • When evacuating a stairway, use handrails and if possible, walk two abreast.

  • Ensure that stairwell door is closed after all personnel have entered

  • Stairwells can be used for sheltering if necessary.

Evacuation & Shelter Training

  • SPECIAL NEEDS PERSONNEL AND AREAS OF REFUGE

  • Areas of refuge are elevator lobbies and stairwells

  • Personnel with disabilities will assemble at the elevator lobby with an assigned aide or any team member.

  • If the elevator lobby is untenable, relocate to nearest stairwell away from smoke or fire.

  • Special needs personnel are considered as any person that can’t safely evacuate by the stairway.

  • Be observant for the “not-so-obvious” special needs personnel.

Evacuation & Shelter Training

  • If you receive a bomb threat:

    • Don’t hang up

    • Take all threats seriously

    • Get as much information as possible (use checklist)

    • When the caller hangs up, call 9-911

    • Pass all information on to the police department upon their arrival

    • Do not activate fire alarm, this may trigger the bomb

    • Verbally notify personnel who may be near the bomb to evacuate the area. Police should be on scene quickly, and will advise how to evacuate.

    • Remember to keep calm and do not panic personnel


Evacuation shelter training11

Evacuation & Shelter Training

    • Verify if package belongs to a co-worker

    • Isolate it immediately.

    • Treat it as suspect.

    • Call local law enforcement authorities.

    • **Don’t second guess a suspicious package, call it in!


Evacuation shelter training12

Evacuation & Shelter Training

  • SHELTER-IN-PLACE

  • Floor plans should indicate safe relocation areas as well as where flashlights, radios and batteries are located, unless they are pre-assigned to personnel.

  • Notification to shelter-in-place will be announced by all means available. (phones, emails, walkie talkies, megaphones)

  • Personnel may take chairs with them to the relocation area if seating is limited.

  • Each building should have a emergency communication room designated.
