    —The purpose of both policies is to provide procedures to be used in events to assure the safety and well being of both individuals served and employees.——They are separate because of the definitions.—Emergency is defined as an event that threatens the health and safety of individuals and/or the buildings they occupy in a limited geographical area. Local first responders can reasonably be expected to provide the emergency assistance needed in a relatively short period of time.—Disaster is defined as an event that threatens the health and safety of individuals and the infrastructure that supports them in a broad geographical area. Because of the magnitude of the area involved, they cannot depend on first responders. They can expect to receive instructions from the first responder agencies. —The emergency plan identifies that each program have a site specific emergency plan that addresses:—
    • —Unconscious or non-responsive individual
    • —Accident or serious illness
    • —Missing individual
    • —Fire or explosion
    • —Dangerous weather conditions
    • —Power failure
    • —Other emergencies that the site area has a history of occurrences.
    —The disaster plan identifies that each state has a designated Safety Committee, responsible for designing, implementing and regularly reviewing the 4 phases of disaster planning: —
    • —Mitigating hazards
    • —Preparation of disaster responses
    • —Responding to a disaster
    • —Recovering from disaster

    The following picture shot is of two of the forms you will find right when opening your folder.  We like to call this the "calm down" pages.  Take a breath - think of what is going on.  Are people safe?  Have I called everyone I needed to?  Do I understand the instructions from my supervisor and can I execute them.  If I am working with a EMS situation, who are my contacts...etc.

      All employees will be trained in the phases of disaster management for the disasters that have a high probability of occurring in their locale. There are site-specific procedures.Also remember that if you are in a car while a torando hits, get out and go to the lowest lying area you can, preferably a ditch.  Don't listen to those old myths about underpass's either - they aren't safe - don't use them for shelter in a storm.According to Acuweather.com,while the peak occurrences for severe weather events in the United States happen between March and October, severe weather can occur at any time. In order to save lives, branches of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will issue public watches and warnings.Knowing the difference between the two can prepare individuals for the necessary steps to take when considering the threat of severe weather. Watches and warnings issued to the public are based on different criteria.Watches are issued by the NOAA's SPC, and warnings are issued by local offices of the National Weather Service (NWS)."A watch is issued when conditions are favorable, for example, either for a severe thunderstorm or tornadoes," AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said. "It doesn't mean severe weather is imminent.""Typical watches cover about 25,000 square miles, or about half the size of Iowa," according to the SPC.Kottlowski said there are no set criteria for issuing watches, but if the conditions seem consistent with a developing severe weather pattern, watches can be changed and altered by monitoring ongoing developments."It can vary," he said. "There is not just one set of ingredients; every watch may have a different set of perimeters from one day to the next since it is based on a synoptic situation that may change within several hours."Warnings mean that severe weather is imminent and is based on specific criteria and existing reports received by the NWS.The criteria include hail that totals more than 1 inch in diameter and wind speeds of 55 mph."Lightning is not a criteria for a severe thunderstorm warning," Kottlowski said. "Heavy rain is not either."Warnings must follow the two main criteria, he said, adding urban flood and stream advisories, flash flood watches and warnings, and flood watches and warnings, may accompany a storm with heavy rain. Warnings are issued through the efforts of individuals working for the NWS.  "The way a warning is issued is that a meteorologist will monitor the weather by radar and look for particular areas where there could be high impact damage," Kottlowski said. "They will issue a warning and there will be a signature for an existing storm or developing tornado."Trained NWS spotters will verify reports of rotation or storm damage."This gives the meteorologists confidence in what they are seeing on radar," he said.

      POLICY AND PROCEDURE FOR CONTACTING SUPERVISORS IN EMERGENCY SITUATIONS PURPOSE The purpose of this policy is to clarify the system used to notify supervisory personnel in the event of an emergency. POLICY All employees in the home are required to respond to daily routines and occurrences, which may include emergency situations, with or without the advice of supervisory staff.  When an emergency situation arises, staff on duty must exercise their best judgment in dealing with the situation, while ensuring adherence to all applicable policies and procedures.  However, specific emergencies require the involvement of a supervisor.  These include: 
      1. Situations that call for supervisory contact based on established Dungarvin policies.  These include policies and procedures concerning missing persons, shift change/coverage issues, overtime authorizations and employee injury.
       
      1. Situations requiring the involvement and/or consultation of a supervisor or alternate to assure the safety and well-being of people served (e.g., medical and behavioral emergencies, maintenance emergencies).
       PROCEDURE Under no circumstances may staff delay in taking action to assure individual’s safety or health.  Instead, staff on duty should act first and then inform the appropriate supervisor at the earliest possible time. 
      1. EMERGENCIES DURING NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS:  8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., WEEKDAYS:  Call the Program Director.

      1. If there is no response within 15 minutes, repeat the call. 
       
      1. If there is no response after the second attempt, staff will call other supervisory staff, in the following order:
       
      1. The Program Director of the home or site;
      2. Other Program Directors from the area;
      3. The On-Call Area Director;
      4. Your  Area Director
       
      1. The On-Call Supervisor will ensure that the On-Call telephone is always “on” and charged.  If contacted regarding an emergency, he or she will deal with it directly.  If further assistance is needed the On-Call supervisor will call other supervisory staff in the following order:
       
      1. Contact that homes Program Director for assistance;
      2. Contact other Program Directors for assistance.
      3. Contact the On-Call AD/PSC for assistance;
       
      1. The On-Call supervisor will document all calls and actions on the On-Call Log (PR6-130).  These will be turned in to their Area Director the Monday after their on-call period ends.

      True or False: One reason that there are two seperate policies is because of the amount of geographic area affected.

      • A.

        True

      • B.

        False

      Correct Answer
      A. True
      Explanation
      The statement is true because the amount of geographic area affected can vary greatly between different policies. Some policies may only apply to a small region or specific area, while others may have a broader scope and cover a larger geographic area. Therefore, it is reasonable to have separate policies to address the specific needs and considerations of different regions or areas.

      The difference between a watch and a warning in regards to tornadoes is that a watch means the weather is in such a way that a tornado could feesably occur whereas a warning means it is imminent.  

      • A.

        True

      • B.

        False

      Correct Answer
      A. True
      Explanation
      A watch for tornadoes means that the weather conditions are favorable for a tornado to occur, while a warning means that a tornado is imminent. This means that when a watch is issued, people should be prepared and stay alert for any potential tornado activity, while when a warning is issued, immediate action should be taken to seek shelter and protect oneself from the approaching tornado. Therefore, the statement is true as it accurately explains the difference between a watch and a warning for tornadoes.

      What angle should your car be at if you are driving and there is a tornado you are needing to move away from?

      • A.

        88 degrees

      • B.

      B. 90 degrees
      Explanation
      In order to move away from a tornado while driving, your car should be at a 90-degree angle. This means that you should turn your car perpendicular to the tornado's path and drive away from it. By doing so, you increase the distance between you and the tornado, reducing the risk of being caught in its destructive path.
