As everyone around the world amplifies their efforts to stop COVID-19 from spreading and emergency services are working more tirelessly than ever, we cannot possibly fathom the idea of a natural disaster and how it would impact everyone; globally. In this mini series we’re covering how HOAs can get themselves prepared whilst in lock down. This post focuses on HOA emergency planning. While we hope that disasters will evade everyone, that’s not realistic. They are just as likely to happen now as they are at any other time. It’s understandable to forget about this in all of the noise that is raging around us, but it is worth remembering that the risks are greater now, because of the emergency services being under pressure. How can you make sure your HOA and community is prepared for disaster and handles it as smoothly as possible? So, find out all here:
How will emergency service provision change?
It’s no surprise that local, state and federal government agencies that typically deal with natural disasters and emergencies are busy trying to slow down the pandemic, which may concern HOAs about the available staff should any issues arise. Government organisations have advised that, while they are handling the spread of the virus, they are also preparing for the upcoming hurricane and flood season, as well as allowing enough staff to deal with those.
Keeping prepped for all eventualities
Local officials are working together to help their communities, as are different states by lending each other personnel where it is needed most. Volunteers are still able to communicate with clients via FaceTime and other video apps, too, so if you need help or advice, do not hesitate to contact them.
As for evacuation and emergency shelters, the general consensus is to avoid using large evacuation shelters to prevent large groups of people, therefore, keeping in line with social distancing advice as much as possible.
