Emergency Planning Preparedness

Our home is committed to the safety and security of our residents and our staff. To ensure our staff our prepared in an emergency situation, we have developed a comprehensive emergency plan in collaboration with our emergency service partners, systems partners, resident and family councils and others. Our emergency plans address include, but are not limited to, the areas that have been set out by the Ministry of Long Term Care:

  • Outbreaks of communicable diseases, outbreaks of a disease of public health significance, epidemics, and pandemics,
  • Fires (also required as part of the Ontario Fire Code),
  • Community disasters,
  • Violent outbursts,
  • Bomb threats,
  • Medical emergencies,
  • Chemical spills,
  • Situations involving a missing resident,
  • Loss of one or more essential services (examples below),
  • Gas leaks,
  • Natural disasters or extreme weather events (e.g., earthquakes, tornadoes, extreme heat or cold, drought),
  • Boil water advisories, and
  • Floods.

We have a communication strategy for announcing Emergency Codes and we practice our response to these codes on a regular basis so that we can analyze our response and make adjustments to our plans. Below is the list of our Emergency Codes:

CODE ORANGE DISASTER/MAJOR EMERGENCY (INTERNAL OR   EXTERNAL)
CODE RED FIRE
CODE GREEN EVACUATION
CODE WHITE VIOLENCE & AGGRESSION
CODE BROWN HAZARDOUS SPILLS
CODE GREY SHUTDOWN & AIR EMERGENCY
CODE BLACK BOMB THREAT
CODE BLUE MEDICAL EMERGENCY
CODE YELLOW MISSING RESIDENT
CODE PINK ELEVATOR EMERGENCY

Our plans include communication systems, emergency staff fan-out lists, relocation strategies, plans for essential supply acquisition such as food, water, medications, personal protective equipment and care items, and a strategy for supporting residents and staff during the emergencies and after the traumatic event.

Below is a link to our Emergency Response Plan which outlines in more detail how our home will respond in an emergency situation.
