ARTICLE XX - DISASTERS AND INCLEMENT WEATHER

Adopted 10/3/99

Section 1.
Fire.

  1. Do not panic and do not clear the building at the first whiff of smoke. Find out what is happening and where. If there is any indication of fire, clear the building and phone the Fire Department.
  2. The time to think about fires is before they happen. Familiarize yourself with the type and application of the fire extinguisher in the building.

Section 2.
Health Emergencies.

  1. Staff members should exercise caution in assisting anyone with any complaint because of the potential danger of a lawsuit. Make the patron or staff member comfortable and protect from needless disturbance until medical help can be obtained.
  2. The EMT’s/Police should be called immediately in the event of a serious problem. At no time should staff members attempt to provide first aid unless certified.

No medication, including aspirin should ever be dispensed to the public.

Section 3.
Bomb Threats.

Keep the caller on the line as long as possible. Ask the caller to repeat the message and try to write down every word spoken by the person. If the caller does not indicate the location of the bomb or the time of possible detonation, ASK FOR THIS INFORMATION. Pay particular attention to peculiar background noises such as motors running, background music and any other noises which may indicate where the call is originating from. Listen closely to the voice (male, female) voice quality (calm, excited) accents and speech impediments. Immediately after the caller hangs up, call the police.

Clear the building.

Section 4.
Winter storms.

The library may close (or postpone opening) when weather conditions exist making it highly improbable for travel. The primary factor of any decision made will be the safety of the staff and the library patrons. However, maximum effort will be made to maintain regular library operating hours. If hazardous road conditions occur, the Director will call a Library Board Trustee to advise him/her of the situation. If a decision is made to close, radio station WDUX, will be called to make the necessary announcement, and a note will be posted on the library door.

Section 5.
Tornadoes

When a tornado warning has been issued in the community, the Director will advise the library patrons of the situation and will ask them to proceed to the inner part of the building away from windows.

Section 6.
Power Outages

The library may close after a two hour power outage, for safety of the staff and library patrons.
