“Plans are useless, but planning is essential.”- Dwight D. Eisenhower
Communication is essential to ensure timely and possibly life-saving information to those who need to react and or respond in the event of an emergency or disaster. At Discovery Senior Living we make every attempt to put in place redundant communication systems and personnel, so that in the event that one goes offline, another team member or system is there to pick up that line of communication.
The following are triggered and managed by the Support Team to assist communities. This information can be shared with team members, family members and interested parties:
*DSL makes every attempt in our planning and procedures to anticipate, plan and prepare for any and all events that could possibly impact our residents and team members. This list is not meant to be all-inclusive, but merely a representation of major events we have experienced and fall into our disaster preparedness plans.
**Every state our company operates within has a set of regulations that outline the standards that senior living communities must follow. Included in these regulations are specific requirements for handling emergency situations. Some states provide greater detail than others. It is the expectation of our company that each Executive Director and Administrator are familiar with and ensures compliance to all aspects of state regulations in the state. Regarding hurricane preparedness, any specific state requirements are thoroughly reviewed and executed as needed with support and guidance from Regional Operating Leaders and the support center.
