How to make a difference Chad Frost HR Safety Officer HAZCOM Compliance Three Steps to Readiness 4 Three Steps to Readiness Be Prepared! Make a Plan! Be Informed! HURRICANE SEASON The hurricane season lasts from June 1 through Nov. 30. Hurricanes can cause a great deal of damage, so preparing ahead of time is important. Those of us who live in coastal communities should prepare, plan and be informed on what they will do. National Atmospheric Oceanic Administration (NOAA) has predicted 2009 to: 1. 2.
3. Be a Near-Normal Atlantic hurricane season. Others saying Below-Normal Forecasts Show: 70 percent chance of having 9-14 named storms 4-7 could become hurricanes, of which -- 1-3 may develop into major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5). Other data shows: 10 named storms. (6 hurricanes, 2 major) THREE STEP ACTION PLAN Step 1: Be Prepared! Start putting together a Emergency Supply Kit The kit should include items like Water - at least 1 gallon daily per person for 3 to 7 days Food - at least enough for 3 to 7 days non-perishable packaged or canned food/ juices foods for infants or the elderly snack foods non-electric can opener cooking tools/fuel paper plates/plastic utensils
Blankets/Pillows, etc. Clothing - seasonal/rain gear/sturdy shoes First Aid Kit/Medicines/Prescription Drugs Special Items - for babies and the elderly Toiletries/Hygiene items/Moisture wipes Flashlight/Batteries Radio - Battery operated and NOAA weather radio
Phones - Fully charged cell phone with extra batteries and a traditional (landline) telephone Cash and Credit Cards - Banks and ATMs may not be available for extended periods Toys, Books and Games Important documents (insurance, medical records, bank account numbers, Social Security card, etc.) - in a waterproof container or watertight resealable plastic bag Tools - keep a set with you during the storm Keys, Vehicle fuel tanks filled Pet care items proper identification/immunization records/medications ample supply of food and water a carrier or cage muzzle and leash TIP: You may want to prepare a portable kit and keep it in your car. Be Prepared! Make a Plan! Be Informed! Step 2: Make A Plan! Create a Family Emergency Plan A. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to know 1.
How you will contact one another? It may be easier to make a long-distance phone call than to call across town, so an out-of-town contact may be in a better position to communicate among separated family members. 2. How you will get back together? Inquire about emergency plans at places where your family spends time: work, daycare and school. If no plans exist, consider volunteering to help create one. 3. What you will do in case of an emergency? Plan places where your family will meet, both within and outside of your immediate neighborhood. B. Plan to Evacuate Identify ahead of time where your family will meet, both within and outside of your immediate neighborhood. Identify several places you could go in an emergency, a friend's home in another town, a motel or public shelter. If you do not have a car, plan alternate means of evacuating. If you have a car, keep a half tank of gas in it at all times in case you need to evacuate. Take your Emergency Supply Kit. Take your pets with you, but understand that only service animals may be permitted in public shelters. Plan how you will care for your pets in an emergency.
C. Utilize local training and information resources to get training and education regarding Hurricane Preparedness and other Disaster Preparedness topics. Be Prepared! Make a Plan! Be Informed! Step 3: Be Informed! Understand the Dangers/Familiarize yourself and your family A Hurricane Watch means a hurricane is possible in your area. Be prepared to evacuate. Monitor local radio and television news outlets or listen to NOAA Weather Radio for the latest developments. A Hurricane Warning is when a hurricane is expected in your area. If local authorities advise you to evacuate, leave immediately. Hurricanes are classified into five categories based on their wind speed, central pressure, and damage potential. 1. MAJOR hurricanes = Category Three and higher 2. Categories One and Two = Extremely Dangerous and warrant your full attention. AT WORK Assess how your Department functions 1. Determine staff, materials, procedures and equipment are absolutely necessary to keep the business operating. (COOP).
2. Identify operations critical to survival and recovery. 3. Plan what you will do if your building, warehouse or shop is not accessible. Consider if you can continue work operations from a different location or from your home. Develop relationships with other Departments to use their facilities in case a disaster makes your location unusable. AT HOME LOCAL RESOURCES Cover all windows with pre-cut ply wood or hurricane shutters to protect from high winds. Plan to bring in all outdoor furniture, decorations, garbage cans and anything else that is not tied down. Keep all trees and shrubs well trimmed so they are more wind resistant. Secure your home by closing shutters, and securing outdoor objects or bringing them inside. Turn off utilities as instructed and/or turn the refrigerator thermostat to coldest setting and keep its doors closed. Turn off propane tanks. Ensure a supply of water for sanitary purposes such as cleaning and flushing toilets. Fill the bathtub and other large containers with water. Be Prepared! Identify Local Government Emergency Plans established in your area.
Follow Instruction given by Local Officials Federal and National Resources Federal Emergency Management Agency NOAA Watch American Red Cross U.S. Environmental Protection Agency U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Center for Disease Control Make a Plan! Be Informed!

Before conducting outdoor activities and feeling thirsty, drink plenty of water and electrolyte-replacement beverages.
2. Avoid beverages or food sources with caffeine, alcohol or large amounts of sugar because these can actually result in the loss of body fluid. 3. Conduct outdoor work or exercise in the early morning or evening when it is cooler. Individuals unaccustomed to working or exercising in a hot environment need to start slowly and gradually increase heat exposure over several weeks. Take frequent breaks in the shade or in an airconditioned facility. 4. A wide-brimmed, loose-fitting hat that allows ventilation helps prevent sunburn and heat-related emergencies. A tight-fitting baseball cap is not the best choice when conducting strenuous outdoors activities. 5. Sunscreen also helps protect injury from the sun's rays and reduces the risk of sunburn. 6. Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing that permits the evaporation of perspiration. 7. Do not leave children, senior citizens or pets unattended in a vehicle.
