      Management should protect vital records by systematically determining what information is vital

    • B.

      The vital records protection program is an administrative device for preserving existing records.

    • C.

      If a particular record does not contain vital information, it has no place in the company’s vital records protection program- even though having other value to the company.

    • D.

      Decision making in determining individual vital records should be rapid. A record either contains vital information or it does not.

    Correct Answer
    B. The vital records protection program is an administrative device for preserving existing records.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The vital records protection program is an administrative device for preserving existing records." This statement is incorrect because a vital records program is not solely focused on preserving existing records, but rather on identifying and protecting records that are essential for the continued functioning of an organization. The program involves systematically determining what information is vital, regardless of whether it is already existing or not. It also considers the value of records beyond their vital information, as they may have other importance to the company. Rapid decision making is also not a requirement for determining individual vital records.

    The president of the ZYX Company expresses concern relative to the company’s ability to act in time of emergency to protect life and property. He instructs that you undertake the necessary action to establish the desired emergency capability within the facility. Which of the following should be the first step in initiating action?

    • A.

      Contact established guard companies to make bids to oversee the operations.

    • B.

      An emergency coordinator should be appointed at the corporate level.

    • C.

      Make a physical survey of the plant

    • D.

      Form a committee of key executives to operate out of the command center

    Correct Answer
    B. An emergency coordinator should be appointed at the corporate level.
    Explanation
    The first step in initiating action to establish the desired emergency capability within the facility should be to appoint an emergency coordinator at the corporate level. This is important because having a designated person responsible for coordinating and managing emergency response efforts ensures that there is a clear chain of command and effective communication during times of crisis. The emergency coordinator will be able to assess the company's emergency preparedness needs, develop and implement emergency response plans, and coordinate with relevant stakeholders to ensure the safety of life and property.

    In establishing a disaster plan, provision should be incorporated which would permit you to be prepared for a variety of emergency situations. Which of the following probably would not have a key role in such plans?

    • A.

      Employee welfare service

    • B.

      Rescue teams

    • C.

      The recreational coordinator

    • D.

      Radiological Defense Service

    Correct Answer
    C. The recreational coordinator
    Explanation
    The recreational coordinator would probably not have a key role in disaster plans. While employee welfare services, rescue teams, and radiological defense services are all important in emergency situations, the role of a recreational coordinator is more focused on organizing recreational activities and events for employees or residents. While their role may be important for morale and well-being in normal circumstances, it is unlikely that they would have a significant role in disaster preparedness and response.

    Perhaps one of the most difficult tasks in planning for disasters and emergencies is that actual formulation of a basic disaster plan. Which of the following is an incorrect procedure in developing such a plan?

    • A.

      The basic plan should provide for coordination of government and company actions before and during a disaster.

    • B.

      A glossary of terms used should be included

    • C.

      There should be a listing of types of emergencies limited to those experienced by the company in the past

    • D.

      The plan should utilize appendices as needed such as maps , call ups lists and mutual aid agreements

    Correct Answer
    C. There should be a listing of types of emergencies limited to those experienced by the company in the past
    Explanation
    The basic plan should not be limited to only the types of emergencies experienced by the company in the past. This is because disasters and emergencies can come in various forms and it is important to be prepared for any potential situation. By limiting the types of emergencies to only those experienced in the past, the plan may not adequately address new or unforeseen emergencies that may arise in the future. Therefore, it is necessary to consider a wide range of potential emergencies when developing a basic disaster plan.
