This Kya Section is intended to give you, a Panorama resident, an overview of emergency preparedness and response at Panorama and what you can do to prepare for an emergency.
Emergency preparedness and response at Panorama has two components: (1) the corporation’s Emergency Preparedness Plan and (2) Panorama resident volunteer organizations.
In an emergency, the corporation will do all it can to protect and support residents. Staff will continue to operate Assisted Living and the Convalescent & Rehabilitation Center. The corporation’s plan for Independent Living residents includes warming centers, transportation, social services, communications, limited food services, and emergency repairs.
Programs below are run by volunteers to augment the corporation’s emergency response.
Map Your Neighborhood (MYN), Panorama’s Resident volunteer organization, recommends that all Independent Living residents be prepared to take care of themselves for two weeks.
The following pages/links explain how the Panorama emergency responses are organized. You will see that many volunteers are prepared to assist residents. There is also information about how each resident can be prepared for the recommended two weeks of self-support.
We urge you to familiarize yourself with the various emergency preparation and response programs. If you want to help with these preparations, volunteers are always welcome. Contact a program leader listed in Quick Overview – Preparing for Emergencies.
