    davis002, the matter of storage also comes into play. The sub-basement is not the smartest place in which to store emergency supplies. Somehow we must look to probability matrices to determine just where these supplies are to be stored.
    My last encounter with this subject was somewhat disheartening; the building manager told the security manager all that was needed was to got to the wharehouse across town to get what they needed. My question was how do you intend to get across town in the event of a disaster? Well Mr. Warnock, I'm sure not all avenues of travel will be disrupted, is not an answer you want to hear on a survey.
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    Home Land Security is encouraging building owners/managers to stock emergency supplies for all its employees and invitees for a period of at least 120 hours or five days, up from 96 hours or four days in the event you are required to "shelter-in-place."
    Greater and greater emphasis is placed on disaster preparedness.
    With all the pencil whipping done by these managers, we could have serious problems sooner than later, given the failures encountered in maintaining emergency power systems.
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    My site has a first aid kit, AED, and a first aid kit. To my knowledge, what little there is , I am the only one on security staff that is certified to use the AED though.

    Hotels are usually equipped for emergencies. Food & water are in stock. As are blankets. Emergency key cards are located at the fire alarm panel so the fire department doesn't have to break down doors. We have flashlights to give guests in case of a power failure so that they do not use candles. Most chains require first aid kits at the front desk, kitchens housekeeping & maintenance departments.

    We have a large cafeteria on site with food /water storage if need be.
    A health room with supplies for all first aid kits.
    Updated contact numbers for all service companies - updated twice per year.
    For an on site emergency requiring Fire Department, we can issue a prepared bag with an access badge / keys individulized to the area needed.

    started a topic emergency response kits

    emergency response kits

    i just wondering how many posts that people have worked at actually have any form of emergency response kits, one building i worked at in SF, had a 3 day supply of food, and water for 15 people, body bags, first aid kits, flashlights, emergency blanket, along with rescue back board.

    other buildings i have worked with, had gas valve shut off keys, and flashlights, and first aid kits but nothing else...

    now the companies i have worked for in utah, have had nothing... not even a first aid kit that is readily available.....

    im more or less wondering if your company provides emergency response/ disaster response kits...
