Flood Plan Components

Update Employee Contact Information

Always be sure you can contact your employees and volunteers.

A major difference between floods and most other emergencies is the need to bring to the site as many employees as possible. It takes people to sandbag, move equipment, drive forklifts, collect customer records, set up pumps, or shut down equipment in an orderly manner. There is always room for people with and without special skills in flood prevention or recovery activities. Remember that relatives, spouses, and others can help at any site when floods threaten.

Use the same updated call list that you have developed for other emergency plans. Make sure you have each employee’s home landline, cell, and pager numbers. Be sure to list the names and numbers of other company employees who work at different facilities that you will call on. Put critical contact names and information on dated, wallet-sized cards, laminate them, and give them to your employees.
