3 I. INTRODUCTION The purpose of the Houston Cole Library Disaster Preparedness Plan is to outline the procedures for anticipating, preventing, and handling threats to the collections, personnel, users, and equipment in the library building. This document refers to disasters as events, such as fire, floods, tornadoes, and threats to security (i.e., bomb threats or active shooters). Disasters may be widespread, cause physical damage to the building, its collections, and equipment, disrupt service to users for an indefinite period of time, and usually require resources outside the immediate department. Effective response to a disaster requires the activation of a disaster team, the commitment of all staff, and the cooperation and coordination of the library administration, Jacksonville State University Police, Jacksonville State University safety officials, the Physical Plant, and outside emergency agencies. In these situations, the primary objective is the safety of human lives. Close adherence to this plan will insure public safety, minimize damage to the collections and library equipment, and help restore library service in a timely manner to the Jacksonville State University community. This plan lists individuals to be contacted when a disaster occurs, response procedures to be followed, and methods to stabilize and recover damaged materials. It prioritizes those portions of the library s collections, including equipment, to protect or remove to designated locations before, during, and after a disaster. The plan cites individuals and organizations to contact for advice in obtaining supplies and equipment for recovering disaster-stricken materials. Copies of the disaster preparedness plan should be kept by each member of the disaster recovery team, as well as in the library s administrative office and at the circulation desk. The Library Disaster Preparedness Committee developed the plan during the Fall of Members included Bob Campbell, Jodi Poe, Doug Taylor, and Kim Weatherford. It will be reviewed and revised as needed. Grateful acknowledgement is made to Lisa L. Fox, Senior Conservator, Local Records Preservation Program, Missouri State Archives for allowing permission to use portions of her original disaster plan, Disaster Preparedness Workbook for U.S. Navy Libraries and Archives. Newport, RI: U.S. Naval War College Library, Rev. November 2012 I-1

8 IV. RESPONSE PROCEDURES This section contains detailed response procedures for the following types of emergencies: Fire Bomb Threat Severe Weather Water Damage Mold Active Shooter Rev. January 2013 IV-1

9 RESPONSE PROCEDURES: FIRE In the event of an emergency requiring evacuation, the building should be emptied of people as quickly as possible, without panic, and in an orderly manner. Appropriate signage and evacuation route markings will be provided and all fire equipment will be maintained in working order. The University Police Department will monitor the condition of equipment. The Dean of Library Services should ensure that floor personnel learn building and department emergency procedures as a part of staff orientation. The following procedures should be followed: 1. Close all doors as you leave, taking keys with you, if possible. DO NOT delay evacuation to retrieve keys. 2. Activate the closet fire alarm pull station along your evacuation route. Alarms are located on the walls next to the stairwell entrances on each floor. (Refer to Appendix E, Building Plans, for diagrams of exact locations.) To activate the alarm, pull the white lever inside the red box. 3. Notify others as you leave. 4. Evacuate the building. a. The following announcement should be made over the PA system, if possible: An emergency situation exists. Please exit the building immediately. Do not use the elevators. b. DO NOT use the elevators. If fire or smoke blocks an exit, use an alternate emergency exit. If smoke is present, stay low. The best quality air is near the floor. c. In the event of an emergency evacuation, library staff members should not return to their work area but should immediately begin evacuating people in the area in which they are located. d. Each floor librarian is responsible for making sure that everyone on the floor has been evacuated, including occupants of carrels, rest rooms, or other enclosed areas. When two or more librarians share a floor, evacuation responsibility will be divided according to a pre-approved plan for that floor. If a floor is without supervision, it will be the responsibility of the librarian assigned to the floor above, Dean of Library Services, Head of Public Services, Head of Technical Services, or Senior Staff Member to make sure the unattended floor is evacuated. Before leaving, the senior person on the floor should ensure that all persons on the floor are gone. e. Disabled persons in the library must be aided in evacuating the building. The staff of each floor must be sure that all disabled individuals in the area for Rev. January 2013 IV-2

10 which the librarian is responsible are assisted from the library, or assisted to a safe area for emergency personnel to rescue, should an emergency occur. For detailed instructions on assisting disabled persons, refer to the Office of Disabled Student Services Emergency Evacuation procedures immediately following this section. 5. Phone the University Police (ext. 6000) to report the alarm AFTER exiting the building. Give your name and the nature and location of the problem. 6. Library staff should meet in the designated staging area (Church Street (East) entrance steps) and report to the Dean of Library Services, Head of Public Services, Head of Technical Services, or Senior Staff Member when they have cleared the building. The Dean of Library Services, Head of Public Services, Head of Technical Services, or Senior Staff Member will be on the entrance steps and will have a check-off sheet for all areas. The Emergency Evacuation Check List will be kept on a clipboard at the Circulation Desk. Staff should check in with the person with the clipboard. They should report as to the status of their areas and any pertinent information about unchecked areas, individuals in the building, or other problems. 7. Upon exiting the building, staff should go to the staging area (Church Street (East) entrance steps) and remain far enough away from the building to allow emergency personnel unimpeded access to the building. AT NO TIMES SHOULD LIBRARY STAFF REENTER THE BUILDING WHILE THE ALARM IS STILL SOUNDING. STAFF MAY REENTER THE BUILDING WHEN AUTHORIZED TO DO SO BY THE APPROPRIATE INDIVIDUAL. For the Houston Cole Library, this individual will be the Dean of Library Services, Head of Public Services, Head of Technical Services, or Senior Staff Member. DO NOT REENTER THE BUILDING UNLESS THIS INDIVIDUAL HAS INDICATED PERMISSION TO DO SO. 8. When the building has been cleared for reentry, all emergency exits must be checked to make sure that they are closed and operational.

15 RESPONSE PROCEDURES: SEVERE WEATHER Severe storms may bring heavy rains, high wind, and hail. These events can cause flooding (local or widespread), roof leaks, broken windows, and assorted forms of water damage. If a severe storm is forecast, awareness of the building's vulnerabilities and external hazards may dictate various protective or mitigating strategies. 1. When a severe storm is forecast, notify in the following order: John-Bauer Graham Office: 5248 Home: (256) Dean of Library Services Cell: (256) Jodi Poe Office: 8103 Home: (256) Head of Technical Services Cell: (256) Head of Public Services Office: 5252 Home: Kim Stevens Office: 5762 Home: (256) Co-Chair, Disaster Preparedness Committee Doug Taylor Office: 5244 Home: (256) Co-Chair, Disaster Preparedness Committee 2. Inventory the disaster supply stockpile and replace or augment items as needed. 3. Verify that all emergency equipment (generators, etc.) is in the proper location and is in working order. 4. Remove collections materials according to the Salvage Priorities list, Section III. Place them in a safe location. 5. Wrap ranges, shelves, cabinets, cases, and other items that need protection in plastic sheeting and seal the sheeting with duct tape. 6. Perform necessary backups of software and data files. Alert data processing hot/cold site of potential emergency. 7. Disconnect electrical equipment and turn off utilities as appropriate. 8. Brief disaster team and other staff on plans and confirm responsibilities. 9. Evacuate when instructed to do so. 10. After the storm, implement applicable procedures outlined in the Salvage Procedures section, Appendix C. Rev. January 2013 IV-8

16 RESPONSE PROCEDURES: WATER DAMAGE These procedures are for routine water damage from roof leaks, plumbing system malfunctions, minor flooding, etc. Judgment and experience may lead one to apply these instructions in a different order than listed here. For example, if a minor leak threatens only a single file cabinet, the prudent course may be to move the cabinet out of harm's way before initiating steps Attempt to determine the cause or source of the water, if possible. 2. Phone the University Police (ext. 6000). Give your name and the nature and location of the problem. 3. If collection materials are threatened by water, immediately notify in the following order: John-Bauer Graham Office: 5248 Home: (256) Dean of Library Services Cell: (256) Jodi Poe Office: 8103 Home: (256) Head of Technical Services Cell: (256) Head of Public Services Office: 5252 Home: Kim Stevens Office: 5762 Home: (256) Co-Chair, Disaster Preparedness Committee Doug Taylor Office: 5244 Home: (256) Co-Chair, Disaster Preparedness Committee Librarian whose floor is affected. 4. University maintenance personnel will be responsible for shutting off water. 5. Make sure University maintenance personnel have turned off electrical circuits in the affected area. No one should walk through water until the appropriate safety officer has declared the area safe. 6. Pull the in-house disaster supply kit, located in the lobby. 7. If there is any danger of biological contaminants in the water, staff working in the area will wear disposable gloves and boots located in the disaster supply kit. 8. Protect the collection while awaiting assistance. Choose (a), (b), or (c) depending on the situation: Rev. January 2013 IV-9

17 a. If only a few items are in jeopardy and the water flow is minor, move any wet or vulnerable materials to a dry, secure location nearby. b. If water is coming from above, get plastic sheeting located in the lobby and use it to cover affected areas, shelves, cabinets, etc. c. If water is coming in on the floor, get book trucks located on the affected floors (or the closest floor) and remove materials from the affected area and move them to a safe location. 9. Remove any standing water with a wet/dry vacuum. 10. Take steps to reduce the temperature and humidity and to increase air circulation: a. Measure the temperature and relative humidity using monitoring devices in the supply kit. b. Turn on air-conditioning or lower the temperature setting. c. Increase air circulation in the affected area by running fans continuously. 11. Initiate salvage procedures (see Appendix C). If the quantity of damaged materials is fewer than 50 volumes or 3 file drawers, they will be salvaged in-house using the airdrying technique. If the quantity of damaged materials exceeds that amount, items a) may be freezed and then air-dried in small batches or b) a professional company may be contacted that provides drying services. Rev. January 2013 IV-10

18 RESPONSE PROCEDURES: MOLD Spores of mold and mildew are found almost everywhere. All they require are the proper conditions--moisture, temperature, nutrients, and often darkness or dim light--to proliferate. Media such as paper, cloth, leather, and adhesives may be consumed or stained by many types of mold. The combination of temperature and humidity is the most critical factor. General cleanliness and the removal of dust and dirt reduce the risk of infestation, and good air circulation is helpful in avoiding a mold outbreak. When the temperature reaches 70 degrees Fahrenheit and relative humidity is near 70%, conditions are optimal for growth and reproduction of most types of mold. Any rise in these levels creates an environment conducive to mold and mildew growth, and they may "blossom" within 48 to 72 hours. The absence of visible growth at low temperatures does not indicate the death of spores, but merely that they have gone dormant. A mold outbreak may occur during routine times if temperature and humidity controls are not adequate, but the risk is greater after a flood or other water damage. In the event of a mold outbreak, take the following actions: 1. If mold is on a few isolated items: a. Place items in freezer bags, located in the lobby. b. Call the Recovery Coordinater, Kim Stevens, x5762 (office) or (256) (home). c. If the Recovery Coordinator is not available, leave a message and put the items (enclosed in plastic freezer bags) in a freezer. 2. If mold is discovered in whole stack ranges, drawers, or rooms, call: John-Bauer Graham Office: 5248 Home: (256) Dean of Library Services Cell: (256) Jodi Poe Office: 8103 Home: (256) Head of Technical Services Cell: (256) Head of Public Services Office: 5252 Home: Kim Stevens Office: 5762 Home: (256) Co-Chair, Disaster Preparedness Committee Doug Taylor Office: 5244 Home: (256) Co-Chair, Disaster Preparedness Committee Rev. January 2013 IV-11

19 Librarian whose floor is affected. 3. Obtain appropriate supplies from the disaster supply kit, located in the lobby. Wear appropriate protective gear such as gloves and respirators. 4. Seal materials in garbage bags, located in the lobby. 5. When dealing with a moderate- or large-scale mold problem, keep air movement to a minimum, since air currents spread mold spores to other, unaffected collections. Do not use fans in the area. Minimize the opening and closing of doors. If feasible, block off return air vents so spores are not spread into the air-handling system and to other storage areas. 6. Transfer all infected materials to an isolation room in such a manner that other areas will not be affected because of the transportation of materials. 7. Immediately and thoroughly sterilize the affected storage area(s), including the climate control system where possible. 8. Determine whether the affected items must be retained. If not, consider discarding, photocopying, or microfilming. 9. If the items must be salvaged, consult a conservator or preservation specialist when dealing with severely affected materials. If the number of affected items is small, they may be treated in-house. See instructions in Lois Price's Managing a Mold Invasion: Guidelines for Disaster Response for detailed instructions. (Appendix C5, Mold Information.) 10. Check materials periodically (at least monthly) for evidence of new or recurrent growth. Carry out these inspections for one year following the infestation. Rev. January 2013 IV-12

20 RESPONSE PROCEDURES: ACTIVE SHOOTER Active shooters are the greatest terrorist threat to campuses. An active shooter is an armed person who has used deadly physical force on other persons and continues to do so while having unrestricted access to additional victims. (El Paso County, Colorado Springs, CO, Sheriff s Office Policy and Procedure Manual: The following comments and response procedures are from Jacksonville State University Police Department emergency management training held on 9/27/ If possible, flee the building. Be ready to move quickly and do not carry anything with you. If you decide to flee, do so in the first few moments of the attack. Be sure you have an open lane to an exit, either a door or a window. 2. If unable to flee, protect yourself and others with you by going to the nearest room and securing the area (office, classroom, bathroom, etc.). a. Lock the door, if able. This may require advanced planning to ensure ability to lock the door. b. Block the door using whatever is available door wedge (if door swings in), desks, file cabinets, books, other furniture. c. Stay away from the door; the shooter may shoot through the door. d. Turn off lights, computer monitors, and cell phones. Close curtains and blinds. Stay quiet and act as if no one is in the room. e. If the shooter enters your room and leaves, lock/barricade the door behind him. f. If safe allow others to seek refuge with you. Consider the risk exposure created by opening the door: Attempts to rescue people should only be made if that can be done without further endangering the persons inside a secured area. The shooter may bang on the door and yell for help to entice you to open the door. Remember the safety of the masses versus the safety of a few. If there is any doubt to the safety of the individuals inside the room, the area needs to remain secured. 3. Phone the University Police (ext. 6000) if able. Tell the dispatcher your name and location and the location of the shooter, if known. Law Enforcement Response (from JSU Police Department information) Law enforcement will immediately respond to the area. Rev. January 2013 IV-13

21 Remain inside the secure area and convey to others that help is on the way. Law enforcement s goal is to locate, contain, and stop the shooter. The safest place to be is inside a secured room (see No. 2 above). The shooter will not flee when law enforcement enters the building, instead he will have new targets to shoot, or will commit suicide. Remember the shooter s mindset is not escape. His goal is to kill and to injure. Evacuation o Safety corridors will be established. This may be time consuming. o Remain in secure areas until instructed otherwise. o Do not touch or pick up the weapon if you see it while exiting the building. o You may be instructed to keep your hands on your head. o You may be searched. o You may have guns pointed at you. o You may be yelled at. o You will be escorted out of the building by law enforcement personnel. Injured Persons (from JSU Police Department information) Initial responding officers will not treat the injured or begin evacuation until the shooter is neutralized. They may go past your location. You may need to explain this to others in attempt to calm them. Once the shooter is contained, officers will come back and begin treatment and evacuation.. Rev. January 2013 IV-14
