99 HIGH STREETEMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PLAN The following information is intended to train and familiarize floor personnel about the FIRE ALARM PROCEDURES and MEDICAL EMERGENCY PROCEDURES for 99 High Street.
We have subscribed to a communications service called Send Word Now. In the event of an emergency, it will notify all employees of status during and immediately after a crisis arises. • Send Word Now contacts you at your phone and text contact points, including home/office phones, cell/satellite phone, email accounts, alpha pagers, Blackberry, etc. Send Word Now has proven to be a dependable, robust service, even under trying circumstances like blackouts and severe weather. • The Send Word Now service will also allow you to respond to messages sent to you. You will be given [#] pre-defined responses following the message. Responding back is as simple as pressing a corresponding number on the keypad of your phone, or replying back to an email message.
During next week’s Evacuation Drill we will be sending you a test “Send Word Now” message on most of your subscribed contact points. Following the message, you will be given the list of responses. It is critical to this test that you perform the following: • Listen to the entire message (do not hang up). • Listen to the entire list of possible responses. • Select a response on the keypad of your phone. • If the response is via email, simply reply to the message, and enter the number of your response in the body of your email.
