Police Emergency Communication Options

UTHealthALERT text messages for imminent threats UTHealth intranet emergency banner Targeted or mass email (note: inherent delay) Web at www.uthealthemergency.org (offsite hosting backup) Fire Alarm Control Panel voice announcement capability Campus television monitors Designated voicemail lines with informational messages (offsite toll free number backup) Local television Local radio Facebook / Twitter UTHealthALERT UTHealthALERT text messages for imminent threats such as an

active shooter or tornado or anytime there is a change in status and other situations Enables one person to communicate very quickly with thousands of people anywhere and at anytime Track broadcasts When the message was sent Who the message was sent to Who confirmed receiving the message Who hasnt confirmed receiving the message Who wasnt able to be reached Why only send text messages? System is faster using only one method Too many methods/messages can overwhelm regional, local, or internal communication systems

Almost everyone owns a cell phone and people tend to keep it with them when they are in transit OPA can send a mass email UTP Clinics Each clinic has its own Emergency Management template/plan Ambulatory loss prevention assessments Looks for any hazard that can shut clinic down for a period of time Patient, visitor hazards, injuries Employee hazards, injuries 13 Controlled Access

UTHealth never closes When initiated, controlled access engages essential personnel Non-essential personnel may access facilities as deemed necessary by signing in and out at the building guard desk and being escorted while in the facility. Example 1 Bomb, Cyber or Terroristic Threats of Violence Typical Event Threat called in, mailed in or submitted

electronically (email, social media, etc.) Key details of message should be noted, reported to UTPD NOTE: specific training for key administrative available from UTPD If threat is non-specific, experts suggest not evacuating, but to conduct low key sweep of building for suspicious items If threat is specific (time, location, etc.) experts suggest evacuation, and subsequent sweep Ultimate decision to evacuate rests with Executive Team, not UTPD Example 2

Inclement Weather: Flooding or Hurricane TMC Flood Alert System http://fas4.flood-alert.org Green Flooding possibility minimal to none Yellow Flood Caution Flooding conditions possible. 10-20% chance of flooding Orange Flooding Possible Water level high in Brays Bayou with heavy rains expected in the western portion of the watershed. 40-50% chance of flooding if storms persist. Red Flooding Probable Water levels very high in Brays Bayou with heavy rains expected to

continue in western portion of the watershed. 80-90% chance of flooding. Controlled Access requested, Executive Decision necessary. Critically important: this color coding system is NOT synchronized with TMC weather alerts that are sent by text, e-mail 19 Critically important: this TMC weather color coding system is NOT synchronized with Flood Alert.org system our flood door plan is linked to Hurricane Preparation Sequence 96 hours before landfall: preparations begin 72 hours: Alert status preparations ramp up 48 hours: Watch status final preparations 24 hours: Warning status Ride out team arrives. Controlled Access requested, Executive Decision necessary.

8 hours out: warning status controlled access Business Continuity Plan Designed to address business continuity issues up to 30 days post disaster in hopes of reducing the severity and duration of operational impacts 11 key units identified requiring detailed BCP plans Template worksheets created for research, academic, clinical, and administrative departments Rapid building damage assessment checklist developed Recovery Existing UT System pre-established contracts Water, fire, smoke damage, etc. BMS Catastrophe Hazardous materials spills Eagle Environmental

Hazardous waste disposal Veolia, Stericycle UTHealth Evergreen contracts & JOC UT System mutual aid agreement Property Insurance coverage Fire and all other perils Wind and named storms CPPP 2017-18 FIRE & AOP STRUCTURE CPPP 2017-18 NAMED WINDSTORM STRUCTURE Summary EMP sets out framework for institutional emergency response and management Key executive decisions are typically:

Open or Controlled Access? Evacuate or shelter in place? Note that decisions can sometimes be impacted by local or state agency decisions BCP facilitates institutional recovery Focus on prevention and preparedness Each emergency situation is different, but in every such event, cooperation and communications are key!
