This section suggest the types of supplies and equipment that may be needed to cope with a natural disaster or other event that causes damage to the RiverPark campus or to its contents. Few facilities such as the RiverPark campus facilities will ever need the full range of supplies and equipment listed here. The RiverPark campus should acquire only those items that are likely to be of benefit depending on the kinds of emergencies and types of damage that have been anticipated. On the other hand, this list does not pretend to be all-inclusive. Almost certainly, the RiverPark campus facilities will find during the planning process that it expects to need items that have not been listed. This list is intended only as a guide. Items listed here do not necessarily have to be stockpiled exclusively for use in an emergency. Some of these items will be found in all facilities like the RiverPark campus as a matter of course. They can be diverted for use in cleanup and repair operations whenever they are needed. However, keep in mind that the items you may be counting on to use during or after an emergency may be damaged or destroyed or made inaccessible by that same emergency. GUIDE TO EMERGENCY SUPPLIES AND EQUIPMENT
Some items – such as dry cell batteries – have a limited shelf life. Plan on replacing such items periodically so that fresh stock is always on-hand in your stockpile. Finally, always include copies (not originals) of operating manuals or instructions with items of mechanical and electrical equipment in case someone not experienced with their operation is required to use them in an emergency. The below listed items market by an asterisk (*) are considered the most critical to have on hand in order to respond to a fire or other disaster event which may result in water damage. Precautions must be taken to ensure that stockpiled emergency supplies and equipment is not used for day-to-day operations; otherwise, they might not be available when needed. Therefore, those items that will be critical to the survival of the RiverPark campus and that cannot be procured promptly elsewhere after the emergency should be set aside or stockpiled in a safe place so they will be available if they are ever needed.
