Each facility is required to have an annually updated emergency disaster plan. This form should be found prominently posted in every facility near a telephone (a copy is also maintained at CCLD in the facility's file). This form contains important items such as (1) staff task assignments during an emergency, (2) emergency contact information and exit information, (3) temporary relocation sites and (4) transportation arrangements.
Prudent consumers may want to confirm the feasibility of the proposed plan. Will the relocation sites truly be able and available to accommodate the resident during a disaster? Is the staffing adequate at all times to evacuate the type of residents served by the facility? Is the transportation reliable and promptly available?
