Did you know that around 48 percent of Americans lack the essential emergency supplies required in case of a disaster? Storms and heat waves can result in serious trouble with many households lacking essentials like matches, flashlights, non-perishable food and water, and medical emergency kits making this incredibly dangerous for all. Getting these supplies after the disaster hits is often impossible, and with flooding and blackouts causing road closures or worse, responding to an emergency should always start with you and hence we need to be adequately prepared for any emergency. Thus, here are a few different ways senior living in Tulsa, OK prepares for emergency situations of any kind.
Identifying the hazards before it hits is often an important part of preparing for emergencies, whereby deciding what hazards could impact our senior living community allows us to prepare for these emergencies. From natural disasters to security threats and the spread of diseases, there are many potential threats to your community that we are careful about, which brings us to the next step in our preparations for any of these potential emergencies.
Hazard mitigation refers to how we help prevent or reduce the likeliness of these emergencies from occurring, and if these emergencies are unavoidable then these mitigation techniques would be able to reduce the severity of these emergencies if they occur. We conduct hazard mitigation by developing clear and comprehensive action plans in advance in preparation for these emergencies, and we decide how we care for residents in the event of a disaster while educating our staff on the proper protocol to follow in case these emergencies occur.
Identifying these potential threats and having plans in place is not enough for us, we believe that it is of utmost importance that our staff and residents are truly prepared for these potential disasters. From staff education and training to practice drills and lessons, we believe that we should always stay on our toes to be prepared for any potential emergencies which could occur. Refreshing ourselves on these mitigation plans is insufficient, we also develop different plans for caring for our residents during these emergencies, evacuation plans for these emergencies, and most importantly a communication plan would be practiced to ensure that residents can carry out these different plans in a coordinated and orderly manner while keeping all parties up to date on each group’s respective conditions.
While having all these plans, and practicing them regularly may appear to be sufficient, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our residents above all else and thus go the extra mile to outline and review the action plans on a regular basis. We constantly streamline and improve our safety protocols and practices to ensure the safety and needs of all our residents are met during these disasters.
Some emergencies are simply unavoidable, and hence we have programs in place to ensure that we can restore our community back to its usual state after these disasters occur. We believe that these emergencies are unpredictable and can occur when we least expect them, so our comprehensive approach to your safety should go a long way in keeping you safe.
