General Emergency Management FAQs
What is emergency preparedness?
Emergency preparedness means taking action to be ready for emergencies before they happen. The objective of emergency preparedness is to simplify decision making during emergencies. Over the years, the combined efforts of the NRC, FEMA, nuclear power plant operators, State and local officials, as well as thousands of volunteers and first responders (such as police, firefighters, and medical response personnel), have produced comprehensive emergency preparedness programs that assure the adequate protection of the public in the event of a radiological emergency. The emergency preparedness process incorporates the means to rapidly identify, evaluate and react to a wide spectrum of emergency conditions. Emergency plans are dynamic and are routinely reviewed and updated to reflect an ever changing environment.
What should I do in the event of an emergency or disaster?
- You should have a personal emergency plan.
- You should remain calm, be patient, use common sense, think before you act, and give assistance as needed.
- You should follow the advice of the 911 operator or Public Safety personnel and local emergency officials.
- You should closely monitor news reports and ALERT warning notifications for news and instructions.
- You should keep ready access to your medicines and family & medical phone numbers.
- You should avoid crowded public areas.
- If a natural disaster or human-caused incident occurs, stay away from the area.
- You should know where emergency devices are located and the location of at least two emergency exits close to your living/working area.
- You should make sure to have access to an adequate first aid kit.
- You should not use the telephone except to report the emergency situation.
- You should not use elevators.
- You should not jeopardize your life or the lives of others by attempting to save personal or university property.
Will my mobile phone work in a disaster?
- It may or may not. Try texting your message if your voice call is not successful.
Who is responsible for emergency preparedness oversight?
FEMA is responsible for oversight of preparedness.
How can I prepare my workplace for a disaster?
As part of your employer’s responsibility for providing a safe workplace, they should have plans for protecting employee health and safety during a disaster. Employees should know what they should do in an emergency. They should know how to exit the facility safely and the evacuation meeting location.
Workplaces should have an facility emergency plan. This is a plan for protecting the health and safety of building occupants. It should identify who is in charge, how to evacuate, how to respond to fires, medical emergencies, and disasters, how to report emergencies, and other items.
Work with your employer to identify what planning and preparedness measures need to be in place. DCEMA, the American Red Cross, and your local fire department can assist you with the development of your facility emergency plan.
What type supplies should I keep on hand for emergency situations?
The Alleghany County Emergency Management Office recommends that citizens keep enough supplies at home to meet family needs for at least 72 hours, since it may take that long before outside assistance is available from the state or federal government. Home disaster supply kits should be made up from sturdy and easy to carry containers such as backpacks, duffel bags or large trash containers in the event that you may have to evacuate and take your emergency supplies with you. These emergency supply kits should contain a number of things including the following:
- Three-day supply of water (1 gallon per person per day).
- A three-day supply of non-perishable packaged or canned food.
- One change of clothing for each member of the family.
- Rains gear or coats depending on the time of year.
- Blankets or sleeping bags for each member of the family.
- A battery powered radio with extra batteries.
- Two flashlights with batteries.
- Sanitation supplies (toilet paper, handy wipes, etc.)
- A first aid kit and any prescription medications needed.
- Extra pair of prescription glasses.
- Special care items for infants, elderly or disabled family members.
- Small writing tablet with two or three pencils.
- Manual can and bottle opener.
- Pocketknife or multi-purpose type tool.
- Recommend $50 to $100 money in cash, since electronic teller machines may not be working due to power outages.
- Reading materials or games to help pass the time.
