Emergencies Procedures in Camp
The best defense against an emergency is preparedness for what might happen. Thedevelopment of clear-cut, well understood policies and practices governing the actions of staff and campers in such emergencies is a responsibility of the local council and camp administration.The staff is made familiar each year in how to handle all types of emergencies and they spendtime in practicing these procedures. The staff, led by the Camp Director, Health Officer, CampRanger, and Program Director is capable and ready to deal quickly and efficiently with anyemergency situation.In an emergency, the first step is to notify the Camp Director. Any staff member with a 2-way radio can reach him. If the Camp Director is not on the property, you should notify theCamp Ranger, Health Officer or Program Director. Once the emergency is established the alarmwill be sounded by the person in charge. There may be times when the alarm cannot be heard inthe outer areas of camp due to weather conditions. When this occurs runners will be sent to eacharea to notify the campers.
