Emergency Preparedness

 in Leisure World of Maryland

 

Why be prepared?

The geographic area that includes Leisure World of Maryland is subject to natural events that can create emergencies.  In the past several years, Maryland has been subject to the effects of an earthquake, snowmageddon, hurricanes, tornadoes, a dereacho, extreme heat, and extreme cold.  These conditions have often impacted on the health and safety of Leisure World of Maryland residents.

The population of Leisure World of Maryland exceeds 8,000.  The two clubhouses are not intended for the shelter of 8,000+ residents during an emergency.  Any evacuation would be handled by the Red Cross, Montgomery County, or other personnel from outside the community.  If a disaster occurs in Leisure World of Maryland, first responders may not be able to get to you immediately, or they may need to focus their efforts elsewhere.  Thus, it behooves residents to take some personal responsibility and initiative in being prepared.   The following emergency preparedness information is included to assist residents develop their home emergency preparedness plan, provides the essential items to include in developing home, car, work and pets emergency supply kits, and provides additional sources of information on emergency preparedness.

Leisure World of Maryland is comprised of several different types of housing, making responses to an emergency vary from Mutual to Mutual.  The Leisure World of Maryland Emergency Preparedness Advisory Committee has recommended that each Mutual develop an Emergency Preparedness plan.  Your personal emergency preparedness plan should be coordinated with your Mutual’s plan.  If your Mutual is part of the Mutual Readiness Program, consider joining your neighbors in sharing personal information that could be vitally important for you or your neighbors in the event of an emergency.  

Various types of emergencies require different responses.  However, there are common sense approaches to preparing for emergencies.  Here, they are classed as:

  • What you should do on a daily basis
  • What supplies you should have on hand

--For home

--For your car

--For your office

--For your pet (s)

  • What you should do if ordered to shelter in place
  • What you should do if ordered to evacuate

What are the desired future conditions?

It is hoped that increased awareness of the need to be prepared will be an incentive for residents to develop emergency preparedness plans and keep them updated for their residences, autos, offices, and pets, as appropriate.

It is hoped that residents will use this information to increase their awareness of their need to be prepared and ready to react to incidents that may impact on their health and safety. 

It is hoped that this increased readiness would play a major role in the outcome of incidents that require county, state or other assistance from outside the community.

It is hoped that being prepared will reduce residents’ fears, anxieties, and losses that can accompany emergencies

 

 

What you should do on a daily basis

·        Shut off water to appliances when going on vacation

·        Unplug appliances when not in use

·        Don’t start appliances before leaving the house

·        Close the door when going to sleep

·        Be aware of anyone who may need extra help in an emergency

·        Arrange for someone to check up on you regularly

·        Get a Lifeline system if you are living alone

·        Get a File of Life if you do not have one already (available free of charge at the Medical Center)

·        Teach anyone who may be assisting you how to operate any necessary equipment

·        Keep emergency and relative contact numbers next to the telephone and in your contact list if you have a cell phone

·        Know how to turn off the main water and main electrical supplies to your home

·        Best radio and TV stations for emergency information

·        Location of all your important papers best kept in a fire-proof safe or safe-deposit box

·        Basic first aid

·        Use perishable food from the fridge first and freezer second

·        Have at least one corded phone for use when the electrical power is down

·        Check smoke detectors and replace any that are over 10 years old

 

What supplies you should have on hand

  • Sanitation supplies for your pet.  Suggestions  include litter and a litter box if appropriate, newspaper, paper towels, plastic trash bags, and household chlorine bleach
  • A picture of you and your pet together.  If you become separated, the picture will help you document ownership and allow others to assist you in identifying your pet,
  • Put toys, treats, and bedding in the kit
  • Include additional items to this kit that you consider essential for your pet’s health and safety

Tips for preparing for an emergency situation will also be broadcast on radio (WTOP—103.5 FM) and local TV stations.

This information does not cover every possible emergency.  It is meant to provide residents with basic preparedness guidelines which, when combined with any specific instructions given by your Mutual and/or professional personnel, should make you more secure in a crisis situation.

The technology for preparing for emergencies evolves over time as does expert thinking about how best to respond to emergencies.  The Leisure World of Maryland Emergency Preparedness Advisory Committee prepares articles for publication in the Leisure World of Maryland News.  These articles typically present current information on emergency preparedness and reminders of how to respond to emergencies.  These articles are compiled in the Leisure World of Maryland Emergency Preparedness Information Guide located in the Leisure World of Maryland library found in Clubhouse I.


 

This brochure does not attempt to cover every possible emergency.  It is meant to provide Leisure World residents with basic preparedness outlines, which when combined with any specific instruction given by your mutual and/or professional personnel, should make you more secure in a crisis situation.

Friday, 11 July 2008 09:26

I. Master Policy Property Insurance Coverage

The Master Policy provides financial protection against the loss of, or damage to real and personal property of the Mutual Associations.  The Master Policy provides coverage for all buildings, structures, and contents owned by the association against loss or damage by any peril, except those specifically excluded within the policy.  Furthermore, the Master Policy is written on ‘all-in' coverage, which means coverage does extend within individual units to fixtures, appliances, walls, floor coverings and cabinetry including any individual unit improvements, betterments, additions or alterations made by unit owners, except patio covers.

Coverage under the Master Policy is subject to a $5,000 deductible per occurrence.  This means that the Master Policy will cover claims only when the damage caused by any one occurrence exceeds $5,000.  There will be no coverage when the cost of damage from one occurrence is $5,000 or less.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR RECYCLING
FROM THE DIRECTOR OF SANITATION


MATERIALS YOU MUST RECYCLE

Leisure World does not take newspapers to Montgomery County for recycling.  Instead, as a cost saving measure, newspapers are sold to an alternate recycling facility.  As a result, the Community saves the expense of paying to dispose of newsprint and receives payment from the recycler of approximately $4,000 - $5,000 per month.

  1. Recycling/Trash CrewNewspapers, junk mail, including inserts (pick up on each Wednesday of the month).
  2. Magazines (pick up on the first Wednesday of the month).
  3. Aluminum, bi-metal (steel/tin) cans, and aluminum foil products.** Note: Please place Magazines and Newspaper in separate bundles in paper bags or tied with string outside for pick up. NO PLASTIC BAGS PLEASE!

    Montgomery County Department of Public Works, Solid Waste Services sent us our second friendly reminder not to include plastic bags with the recycling materials.  According to the county we are over the limit of contaminants.  Many residents fill the plastic bags with recyclables and include the bag in the recycling container.  Plastic bags are non recyclable in Montgomery County.   Please notify your residents and janitorial staff not to include plastic bags with recyclable materials. If you could include this information in your next newsletter and post this information so everyone is made aware, it would be appreciated.  Thank you.
  4. Glass bottles and jars (green, clear and amber).
