County Interim Evacuation Plan excerpts

November 27, 2005

Washington County's Interim Evacuation Plan






"Notifying people of the need to evacuate, including evacuation routes, directions to a shelter or the need to shelter-in-place, will be difficult. Present methodology places first responders entering the hazard areas blowing sirens and announcing over their PA systems of the event." - Page 5




"(Washington County Board of Education will) evacuate affected school students and staff to a safe location either within the county or outside of the county as needed. (The Board will) notify parents of the move, and that their children will be returned to the county at the conclusion of the event or to their homes if they are outside of the evacuation area." - Page 10




"Advise the American Red Cross of the event and the area being affected to enable them to open needed shelters. The advice should include the area for shelter(s) site(s) location(s) that should not require relocation if the event broadens." - Page 13

"The refusal to allow their pets to accompany the owners into the shelter may escalate into violence, therefore, it is important that a uniformed police officer be stationed at the shelter during initial registration." - Appendix A, Page 1




"Develop a group of volunteer cowboys and/or cowgirls who will assist in the rapid-emergency movement of herds from danger through 'cattle' drives." - Appendix B, Page 2
