10 Township of Rideau Lakes - Emergency Response Plan 10 Part 2 Emergency Operations and Procedures 2.0 Community Control Group (CCG) Responsibilities and Procedures Comprehensive emergency management involves mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. Among other things, emergency management includes the identification and analysis of hazards specific to a community, assessing response capabilities, the development and maintenance of response plans, the identification of actions required to enhance the Townships response capability, and steps that can be taken to reduce potential adverse effects of identified hazards. Integrated emergency management is the congregation of emergency management efforts that have taken place at the micro level at each level of government to yield an efficient, effective, and community specific emergency management program. It includes, for each development phase of the emergency management program, the coordinated arrangements of the local authority with that of provincial and federal agencies and organizations. The Community Control Group is responsible for the direction and control of the overall emergency response within the community. The CCG ensures the provision of the essential services necessary to minimize the effects of an emergency on the community. The CCG is made up of the following members; Mayor (or alternate) CAO (or alternate) OPP Representative (or alternate) Fire Chief (or alternate) EMS/Ambulance (or alternate) Public Works Director (or alternate) Area Roads Supervisor (or alternate) CEMC (or alternate) Medical Officer of Health (or alternate) Director of Social Services (or alternate) Duty Officer (or alternate) Treasurer (or alternate) Public Information Officer (or alternate)
11 Township of Rideau Lakes - Emergency Response Plan 11 IMPLEMENTATION: Any member of the Community Control Group may request, through the CAO, that the Emergency Plan be implemented. It is the responsibility of the agency that is first at the scene of an emergency to decide whether the Emergency Plan should be implemented. If the size or seriousness of the emergency is beyond the capability or responsibility of that agency, then the Emergency Plan will be activated. The Emergency Plan may be implemented in whole, or in part, based on conditions at the site or severity of the situation. The CAO will immediately notify the Mayor and other members of the CCG. Notification lists and procedures are located in Appendix A. 2.1 Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) Procedures The Emergency Operations Centre provides the necessary communications and physical facilities for the control and direction of emergency operations by The Township of Rideau Lakes. The Township of Rideau Lakes Community Emergency Management Coordinator is responsible for the operational readiness of the Centre. The Chief Administrative Officer is responsible for the conduct and control of emergency operations. The EOC has both a primary and a secondary or alternate location. During the notification process, direction as to which location members of the CCG will report to will be given. For example, members will be told that there is an emergency and they should report to the primary EOC immediately. The primary and secondary locations are geographically separated so that if one or the other is endangered or rendered non-functional as a result of the emergency situation the other should be safe and operational. Refer to appendix N for EOC locations (primary and alternates), layout, and setup guidelines. Upon receiving notification the CAO/Operations Officer will contact the administrative staff that have been assigned the task of setting up the EOC. The EOC will be set up and operational as soon as possible after activation. The Operations Officer will supervise the set up and ensure operational viability. Upon arrival at the EOC, each CCG member/designate will sign in and proceed to carry out their respective functions as set forth in their respective EOC checklist. Upon leaving the EOC, each CCG member will; a. Conduct a hand over with the person relieving them. b. Sign out on the location board indicating where they can be reached. Once the initial response is established, routines are put into place by the Operations Officer. The CCG functions most efficiently on a system known as an Operations Cycle.
12 Township of Rideau Lakes - Emergency Response Plan Operations Cycle An operations cycle is how the CCG manages overall emergency operations. CCG members will come together usually around a planning board or map at which time they will in turn report their agencies status to the Mayor and Operations Officer. It is essential that every member, covering each area of responsibility, be heard from during this process. The CCG is a team, and the actions taken by one, or the lack of action by one, may have a significant impact upon operations. The round table discussion should include problems, questions, resource requests and any other relevant information so that timely informed decisions can be made as a group. Once the meeting is completed, the members should contact their agencies and pass on any relevant information or directives that come out of the CCG meeting. The frequency of the meetings are determined by the Operations Officer in conjunction with the Mayor, but should reflect the pace of the emergency and occur on a scheduled basis which may be adjusted accordingly. During the period after the meeting and dissemination of information, members will be in the process of gathering information and preparing for the next scheduled meeting. CCG members use this time to follow up and ensure CCG decisions are being implemented. Each member is responsible for informing their respective agency of the schedule for CCG meetings. No calls are supposed to interrupt the proceedings. All calls must occur prior to or after the formal meetings of the CCG. It is essential that the EOC is comfortable, has good communications and is secure from unnecessary distractions. Only CCG members, and EOC support staff should have access to the EOC. No media are allowed into the EOC, nor is anyone who has not been authorized by the Operations Officer. The illustration on the following page is a communication flow diagram between core CCG members and on-site emergency personnel. Additional CCG members in the public and private sectors may be added depending on the nature of the emergency.
13 Township of Rideau Lakes - Emergency Response Plan 13 Members of the CCG located at the EOC are highlighted in the yellow boxes, while on site response personnel are noted in the red boxes. Efficient and effective communication is vital during an emergency situation. Each respective position/department/agency should develop its own procedural communication policies for relaying information to and from their respective on-site emergency representatives to the CCG and vice versa.
