Flashcards in Chapter 5 Emergency Planning Deck (30):
1

Describe an incidental hazardous substance released.

An incidental release of a hazardous substance is a release that does not pose a significant safety or health hazard to employees in the immediate vicinity or to any employee to clean it up nor does it have the potential to become an emergency with in a short period of time.

A certain level of knowledge is needed to distinguish between incidentals bills and bills that require a vacuolation in the assistance of emergency responders. The first responders must be trained to know the difference.

2

A business continuity plan (BCP) that is used in the event of a business interruption is a collection of what?

A. Purposes, policies, positions, and information
B. Policies, properties, protocols, and intelligence
C. Policies, procedures, protocols, and information
D. Purposes, procedures, protocols, and information

C. Policies, procedures, protocols, and information

3

If I requesting washers are to be a reliable tool for the first level of response, they must be:

A. Regularly checked and refilled after an incident.
B. Large enough to extinguish a substantial fire.
C. Randomly placed throughout the facility.
D. Refilled annually

A.. Regularly checked and refilled after an incident

4

What are the training requirements for emergency responders?

All employees designated to serve as emergency responders were a business were facility must be trained prior to their participation in any emergency response operations, and their training must be based on the specific functions and duties they will be expected to perform.

Awareness training-trained to notify the proper authorities for response

Operations training-for employees who initially respond in a defensive mode but who are not trying to stop the release

5

Naomi will be required to respond initially to a hazardous substance release in a defensive manner for the purpose of protecting nearby persons, property, or the environment from the effects of the release, but will not approach the point of release. She will need to be trained to what level?

A. First responder awareness level
B. First responder operations level
C. First responder fire safety level
D. First responder personal protective equipment

B. First responder operations level

6

A phased evacuation provides what?

A.. Mass exodus
B. Total evacuation, but not all at once
C. Sheltering in place
D. Areas of refuge

B. Total evacuation, but not all at once

7

Define BCP.

A business continuity plan Is a collection of policies, procedures, protocols, and information that is developed, compiled, and maintained in readiness for use in the event of a business interruption.

A BCP outlines the steps and organization needs to take in order to quickly resume service delivery.

8

(Fill in the blanks) business continuity planning is important for appropriate action in the_____ofan emergency, but emergency planning focuses on the_____response to particular emergencies.

A.. Midst; Clean up
B. Cleaned up; immediate
C. Midst; aftermath
D. Aftermath; immediate

D. Aftermath; immediate

9

Explain to defend in place strategy.

Is used in apartments, hotels, and office buildings that have been constructed using fire resistive design features.

You can be safer to remain in place then to attempt evacuation through a smoke-filled Corredor and down several flights of stairs.

Partitions between apartments in Corredor is typically have at least one hour fire resistance rating’s, giving fire department personnel another responder sufficient time to enact a phased evacuation, if one is needed.

10

What steps should be considered when accounting for individuals post evacuation?

Designate an assembly area outside of the workplace where employees should gather after evacuating.

Take a headcount after the evacuation. Identify the names and last no locations of anyone not accounted for, and pass this information to the official in charge.

Establish a method for accounting for non-employees and occasional Building occupants such a suppliers and customers with a sign in system that is reliable used by everyone without exception

In buildings with multiple tenants, each tenant will have a designated emergency response Kaptan to assist the buildings into the coordinator with these headcount tasks

11

How should one go about responding to a liquid/chemical/electrical fire?

The best approach is to sound the alarm, evacuate the area, and let the professionals handle the situation.

12

Compare the timing of a BCP versus an emergency plan.

Business continuity planning is important for appropriate action in the aftermath of an emergency, but emergency planning focuses on the immediate response to particular emergencies. Emergency plans will vary with the type of event they were written for and many other factors.

13

The BEST approach when encountering a liquid, chemical, or electrical fire is to do what?

A. Sound the alarm and wait near the fire to explain the situation to the firefighters
B. Sound the alarm, find an extinguisher, and control the fire until help arrives
C. Sound the alarm, wait to make certain the sprinklers and gauge, and to back you wait the area
D. Sound the alarm, evacuate the area, and let the professionals handle the situation

D. Sound the alarm, evacuate the area, and let the professionals handle the situation

14

What is the purpose of partial or zoned evacuations?

Partial or zoned evacuation provides for immediate, general evacuation of the areas of the building nearest the hazard incident.

15

What is the process and purpose of delayed evacuations?

Delayed evacuations take advantage of temporary holding places, typically known as areas of refuge for areas of rescue assistance, we’re occupants can remain in relative safe week, I’ll be at near the fire area, for a short period of time (generally less than an hour or two).

Disabled

16

What strategy states that it can be safer to remain in place then to attempt evacuation through a smoke-filled Corridor and down several flights of stairs?

A.. Defend in place
B. Sheltering in place
C. Areas of refuge
D. Guard in place

A. Defend in place

17

When is blood-borne pathogen training required?

Blood-borne pathogen training is required written responses potentially involve exposure to blood or other infectious materials.

18

A viable continuity capability plan must include this element.

A. A detailed budget
B. Vital records management
C. Equipment shutdown procedures
D. A project plan

B. Vital records management

19

Define phased evacuation.

Phased evacuation provides for the immediate, general evacuation of the areas of the building nearest to hazard incident, with continuing, selective evacuation of all of their building areas.

Phased evacuation is a total evacuation , but not all at once.

Is accomplished most often by voice communication over fire alarm speakers.

20

What are the elements that are necessary to establish and maintain an effective continuity capability?

Essential functions-functions that must be carried out

Continuity communications
Vital records management
Orders of succession
Delegations of authority
Continuity facilities-place to operate from during outage

Human Resources
Test, training, and exercise program
Devolution of control and direction-not temporary
Reconstitution planning for operations-return to normal operations

26

What criteria should be considered to determine the approach to hazardous releases?

The specific properties of a particular hazardous substance, such as toxicity, volatility, flammability, explosiveness, corrosiveness, and so on, as well as the particular circumstances of the release itself will determine whether employees can handle the situation safely and what procedure should be followed.

27

What requirements need to exist in order for fire extinguishers to be reliable tools for first level responders?

They must be located in consistent, standard places in the building

They must be light enough for smaller people to handle

They must be regularly checked and refilled after an incident
