Mother Nature is mad and a flash flood is headed to your assisted living facility in Pittsburgh. Your state has implemented the Incident Command System. Regional emergency response teams have been dispatched, but may not reach your facility in time. Local emergency teams are spread thin and are unable to direct your actions. Do you evacuate or shelter-in-place? Making the wrong decision could spell disaster for your residents and staff. What is your action?
Assisted living facilities face high difficulties when it comes time to respond to a disaster. Residents are often disabled, have restricted mobility, and may panic and not respond to instruction. Resident to staff ratios often exceed 10:1. Is your staff prepared to save your residents from any approaching disaster?
Unless your staff has been trained by experts, your facility has a custom emergency response plan in place and your resident have all been through drill exercises with first responders, you are not prepared. Being unprepared can go far beyond potential multi-million dollar criminal negligence suits. Having an emergency preparedness plan for your assisted living center in Pittsburgh is absolutely essential.
