Incident Plan

Incident Plan

The scenario for severe weather flood:

Due  to sever hail and heavy rains, portions of the North River have overflown and  have flooded dozens of neighborhoods in our city of Mertzville. The industrial business park, which stores  various dangerous chemicals, as well as the storage facilities for much of the  city’s food have been flooded as well. Of our nearly 200 thousand residents, many have found themselves in  need of rescue. Many more will need  shelter, food, and medical care. In  accordance with the declaration from our Mayor, we are implementing the  Incident Command System and emergency management response effective  immediately.

Because  of the sudden and rapid onset of this disaster, many of our residents have  found themselves trapped in their homes, on their roofs, or places of business. The rescue and care for these people is our  number one goal. Temporary sheltering  will need to be put in place to house the evacuees and medical treatment  stations will need to be established to treat basic injuries and provide  needed medications. Furthermore, the industrial business park area must be  cordoned off and any chemical leakage contained. Due to the severity of this flooding, the  chemicals present in the industrial park, and the likely hood that chemicals  have escaped, the cities drinking water should not be drank until further notice. Additionally, the food storage facilities  must be surveyed and those supplies not damaged salvaged in order to aid in  the provision of supplies for those displaced.

For  those seriously injured, we will transport them to one of our two hospitals,  depending on the nature of their injuries. We have allocated our cities three high schools and nine elementary  schools to serve as temporary shelter locations. Our four junior highs will act as medical  treatment facilities for those not in need of life-saving medical care. All these locations will be guarded by the  National Guard as will many of the areas damaged by the flooding. Police officers from our three stations will  supplement and aid the National Guard to help ensure safety and peace. Additionally, National Guardsmen from our  cities training center will utilize their resources in conjunction with those  of our seven fire stations to immediately being search and rescue operations.

Initial Response Phase for  Severe Weather Flood
