What: The FEMA Region II Shelter-in-Place Workshop is a facilitated discussion that focuses on identifying challenges you may encounter with sheltering people in place for an extended period of time. Through presentations and group discussions, you will look at the immediate actions necessary to secure your facility and people inside, and then the long term challenges unique to your facility or business that may occur if you are required to hold people inside for up to 72 hours.
This exercise utilizes the scenario of an Improvised Nuclear Device as the “worst of the worst” case scenario in order to bring to light many challenges you may face on other natural and manmade disasters.
The agenda is:
- Presentation: Medical effects of a nuclear detonation
- Presentation: Shelter-in-place considerations
- Presentation: Alternative methods of communications
- Module One Breakout Discussions: Initial Actions
- Module Two Breakout Discussions: Sheltering in Place
Who: This one day workshop was created with the whole of community in mind. Discussions would be beneficial to any government agency, hospital or healthcare facility, school or daycare center, private business, faith-based organization, nongovernmental organization, etc.
