                                 Basic Emergency Operations Plan



I.       PURPOSE


          To develop and implement an emergency management program, utilizing, Federal, State, and
      Local     governmental agencies along with other organizations, for emergency management and
      disaster situations caused by natural, technological, man-made, or hazardous materials incidents.
      To provide for mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery from such incidents.

III.   SITUATIONS AND ASSUMPTIONS


       A.   Situation

            1.    The Town of Scarborough is located in the southwestern portion of Cumberland
                  County. The town encompasses 54 square miles, much of which is coastal and
                  marshland with low sea level elevations. The population of the town is
                  approximately 13,500.

            2.    The Town of Scarborough is vulnerable to many types of disasters. Considerations
                  for these different hazards are addressed in the annexes. Capabilities and
                  resources are available, which if effectively employed could minimize or
                  eliminate loss of life or property.

            3.    Some of the possible potential hazards as listed in the hazard analysis for the
                  Town of Scarborough include, fire, floods, hurricanes, severe coastal storms, and
                  hazardous materials incidents.



       B.   Assumptions



            1.    Some situations may occur with ample warning time while others such as a
                  transportation accident may occur with little or no warning.

            2.    Depending on the severity of the situation, the effected area may not be able to
                  cope effectively. It may become necessary to request assistance through volunteer
                  agencies.

            3.    Time frames for any operation in emergency phases depends on the situation. The
                  recovery phase would similarly be determined by thetype of disaster involved.



IV.    CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS


       A.   General




Scarborough Emergency Plan                            - 10 -                               Nov-10
           1.    The overall authority at the local level lies with the Town Manager, who is
                 ultimately responsible for protecting lives and property in an emergency or
                 disaster situation.

           2.    Emergency Management functions are defined in the Emergency Plan and the
                 Direction and Control annex.




     B.    Phases of Management


           1.    Mitigation - Those activities that eliminate or reduce the probability of a disaster
                 occurring.

           2.    Preparedness - Developing response capabilities needed in the event of an
                 emergency.

           3.    Response - Providing emergency services during a crisis.

           4.    Recovery - Short and long term activities to restore a community to its normal
                 function.




V.   ORGANIZATION AND ASSIGNMENT OF RESPONSIBILITIES



     A.    General


           1.    When Scarborough Emergency Management has exhausted its resources, it should
                 contact the County Emergency Management Agency for assistance. The County
                 is the coordinator for assistance in those cases where Local and County resources
                 cannot meet response or recovery requirements.

           2.    Each organization and department is responsible for developing and maintaining
                 their emergency management procedures and standard operating procedures.



     B.    Assignment by Function




Scarborough Emergency Plan                             - 11 -                                Nov-10
           1.    Each function will have an organization assigned to it with either primary or a
                 support responsibility. Mentioned briefly in the Basic Plan, these will be listed in
                 detail in the Functional Annexes.


     C.    Responsibilities by Organization

III.     FIRE SERVICE TASK FORCE


              Cumberland County Task Force groups are organized and available during a disaster
              declared by the President or Governor. During this time, mutual aid between towns is
null                 and void. Towns must request assistance from the County Fire Coordinator in the
County                       EOC.

         A.   Direction and Control


              1.     The County fire coordinator is designated as the Chief of the Cumberland County
                     Fire Task Force Group.

              2.     The County fire coordinator may appoint a Fire Chief or Deputy to assist or
                     represent him at the County EOC or fire scene.

              3.     Local fire chiefs will remain responsible for fire control within their jurisdiction.

              4.     All dispatching of the task force will be from the EOC over the County fire radio
                     net 154.31 with the County Emergency Management net as a backup. All stations
                     on this net will be asked to stand-by in order that the task force groups have
                     unlimited use of that net. Each group will use its task force group number as a
                     call sign.

         B.   Responsibilities

              1.     The Fire Coordinator will coordinate activities of the local Chiefs, although local
                     Chiefs will remain responsible for fire control within their jurisdiction.

              2.     The Fire Coordinator will coordinate firefighting and rescue assistance to towns
                     and surrounding counties.

              3.     Upon arrival of a mutual aid unit at the fire scene the individual in charge will
                     report to the local Fire Chief in charge of the scene.

                 Army National Guard.

           2.    Maine developed a response plan (PLAN BULLDOZER) with the Associated
                 General Contractors of Maine to furnish support from the construction industry
                 when a towns resources are exhausted. This plan will be coordinated by the
                 County Emergency Manager.

                            Town of Scarborough
                        Emergency Management Agency

                               Radiological Protection Annex

I.    PURPOSE


      To provide Scarborough with an effective Radiological Monitoring and reporting capability
      designed to minimize the effects of radiation hazards to the community and its public. Included
are   the procedures for detecting, monitoring, assessing, and decontaminating a radioactive
      environment.


II.   SITUATION AND ASSUMPTIONS

      A.     Situations

             1.     Accidents involving radioactive material could occur within or during
                    transportation through Scarborough to other areas in the State.

             2.     Scarborough could receive radioactive fallout from an accidental or deliberate
                    nuclear weapons detonation.

      B.     Assumptions

             1.     By properly developing, exercising, and maintaining a fully operable radiological
                    protection system, the number of injuries from a radiological incident will be
                    significantly reduced.

             2.     Adequate facilities, equipment and trained personnel will be available to collect,
                    record, and evaluate data.

             3.     Assistance may be expected from higher levels of government should a
                    radiological incident occur. However, during unusual circumstances,
                    communications systems may be disrupted delaying additional support.
III.   CONCEPTS OF OPERATIONS

       A.   General

            1.    The management of radiological emergencies involves three critical activities:
                  a)    Environmental surveillance
                  b)    Personnel exposure control
                  c)    Protective measures

            2.    In a large scale emergency involving radioactive materials, many elements of local
                  government will be integrated into a coherent Radiological Protection System
                  with the following components:
                  a)      Facilities
                  b)      Equipment
                  c)      Trained personnel
                  d)      Communications
                  e)      Plans and procedures

            3.    The EOC, located at the Public Safety Building at Oak Hill, will be the primary
                  focal point of communication with State and County Government.

       B.   Phases of Mitigation

            1.    Mitigation
                  a)     Designate a Radiological Protection Planner.

                  f)     Establish a single location to be designated for direction and control.
                  g)     Establish a Public Information System to advise citizens during a
                         radiological situation.
                  h)     Identify locations that will provide adequate protection against the effects
                         of a radiological
                  i)     environment.
                  j)     Periodically test and exercise the radiological protection system.
                  k)     Provide periodic refresher training in all aspects of radiation protection.


            2.    Preparedness
                  a)     Review and update plans and standard operating procedures.
                  b)     Prepare for inspection and calibration of radiological support equipment.

            1.   FRMS station Y-1       Scarborough EOC, Public Safety Building,
                                        Radiological Officer: Peter Paras  883-**




Scarborough Emergency Plan                             - 54 -                                   Nov-10
                                  Radiological Protection Annex

IX.      Appendix 1 - Radiological Monitoring Procedures


Each monitoring station has a complete radiological kit, containing 1 low range (mr/hr) survey meter;
2 0-500 (r/hr) post attack meters; 2 0-200 r dosimeters; 1 dosimeter charger; and ample batteries.
Once a month each station must take a test and report its findings to the EOC. Following is a guide for
completing the tests:

         1.    Put all batteries in all three meters and the dosimeter charger.
         2.    Charge both dosimeters and zero them to check the operation of the charger.
         3.    Place the dial of the mr/hr survey meter to 10X and allow 30 seconds to warm up. Open
               the shield on the probe and hold near the test site on the side of the box. The meter
should                 read between 1.5 and 2.5 mr/hr.
         4.    Place the dial on the r/hr meter to zero. Allow 2 minutes to warm up. Adjust the zero
               control so that the meter reads zero. Switch dial to circuit check. If needle goes into the
               read circuit test area the meter is operational.
         5.    When all tests are completed be sure to remove all batteries from the equipment.

If any of the above tests do not produce the desired results try new batteries. If that doesn’t work bring
the entire kit to the EOC and it will be returned to State for repairs.

Once the equipment is determined to be operational it is time to take the monthly tests. Fill in the
information at the top of the Fixed RADEF Monitoring Station (FRMS) reporting form. Complete the
test as follows:

         1.    Set the mr/hr survey meter on 1X. Insert the headphone set into the jack.
         2.    You must make 10 tests, each being 1 minute long. Count the number of clicks from the
               headset during a one minute interval and record that figure on the report form. Repeat
this                   10 times.
         3.    When you are done calculate the average reading by adding all of the test results listed,
and                    divide by ten. Record this on the appropriate line of the report form. Also record
the                    highest and lowest readings in the appropriate place on the form.
         4.    The bottom section of the report has an area labeled comments. List any problems with
               equipment, requests for batteries, or any important information that should be passed on
to                     the EOC.
         5.    When the report is complete, sign and forward it to the EOC at the Public Safety
               building.

                 b)      facility pre-plans
                 c)      names and phone numbers
                 d)      chemical lists issued under Title III or other related laws.

           2.    This plan should be exercised annually. Assistance in developing an exercise is
                 available from the County Local Emergency Planning Committee. Exercises
                 should be preceded with some degree of training. A critique of the exercise
                 should indicate which areas of the plan should be updated or improved. Any
                 changes that are made should be documented.

           3.    A critique should be conducted by all responding agencies and facilities as soon as
                 possible following a Haz Mat emergency.

Hazardous Substance Emergency Response Guide
I.    INITIAL NOTIFICATION

           1.    Notification of a potential HAZMAT release should be made to the local
                 emergency services.

           2.    To comply with Federal law (SARA, Title III), notification must also be made to
                 the Maine State Police. Emergency phone numbers and subsequent notifications
                 are attached.

II.   INCIDENT ASSESSMENT

           1.    Establish a Command Post a safe distance upwind of the incident (DOT
                 guidebook has distance recommendations). One Command Post should be
                 established for all responding agencies and departments. It should be clearly
                 identified and visible to arriving responders. One person should be assigned as
                 the On-Scene-Commander.

           2.    The following agencies may be represented at the Command Post: Fire, Police,
                 Rescue, Emergency Management, Public works, Water district, Facility
                 representatives, Municipal representatives, School Department, Sewer District,
                 Medical facilities, Red Cross, and Technical support personnel.

           3.    Command Post operations are described in the attached Standard Operating
                 Procedure.

           4.    Before tactical operations are started, the emergency should be mutually assessed
                 by the officers in charge of each responding agency. Assessment should also
                 involve a qualified facility representative, if available.

           5.    The On-Scene Commander is responsible for coordinating the activities of all
                 responding departments and agencies. If Federal response teams are involved, the
                 federally designated On-Scene Commander will provide technical assistance.

           6.    The Incident Commander should determine public protective actions based on
                 available information. If the incident is expected to cross political boundaries, the
                 officials of that jurisdiction should be notified.

           7.    The Incident Commander should decide to respond to the incident or to assume a
                 defense posture until the incident subsides or until additional support can arrive.

           8.    The Emergency Manager may activate the Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
                 as a Secondary Command Post. The EOC may provide assistance and support
                 through radio interfaces, resource management, evacuation & shelter
                 coordination, and contact with specialist, such as CHEMTREC, EPA, DOT, etc.




Scarborough Emergency Plan                            - 64 -                                 Nov-10
III.   TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

           1.    References such as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), the DOT Guide book,
                 and qualified facility representatives may provide general information.

           2.    Additional information can be obtained from CHEMTREC by calling 1-800-424-
                 9300. More information about CHEMTREC is listed in the attachments at the
                 end of this section.

           3.    The National Weather Service can provide info on the current or anticipated
                 weather conditions. Instructions and phone numbers are attached as a standard
                 operating procedure.

           4.    The US Coast Guard may respond to chemical incidents that affect navigable
                 waterways.

           5.    The Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) may provide
                 environmental monitoring. The DEP has response personnel in Portland who
                 have a limited supply of response equipment.

           6.    The Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a response team based
                 out of Boston, but expect several hours for arrival.

IV.    RESPONSE PERSONNEL SAFETY

           1.    On-scene health and safety procedures should be developed by each response
                 organization to protect responders.

           2.    An exclusion zone should be established to keep unauthorized personnel from the
                 hazard area. A boundary should be distinguished between contaminated and clean
                 areas. A checkpoint between these areas should be manned by a safety and
                 medical officer who will monitor personnel and equipment traffic into and out of
                 the zone. They will also verify that safety and decontamination procedures are
                 followed.

           3.    A medical officer should be assigned to monitor responders for indications of
                 chemical overexposure, heat exhaustion, etc. Hospitals should be contacted as
                 soon as it is recognized that victims require treatment, so that they can research an
                 antidote. The Poison Control Center may also provide information.




Scarborough Emergency Plan                            - 65 -                                 Nov-10
V.    PUBLIC NOTIFICATION AND WARNING

           1.    Determine public protective actions before notifying the public. If evacuation is
                 the best option, determine evacuation routes and public shelter locations before
                 initiating it.

           2.    Immediate public notification should be a high priority. Consider the following
                 when warning the public.

                 a)     Notifying inhabitants of the risk area via public address systems and or
                        sirens.
                 b)     Door to door notifications by police as necessary.
                 c)     Schools, hospitals, nursing homes, day care centers, etc., may require
                        assistance in moving from the risk area.
                 d)     Remote or sparsely populated areas may present difficulties in public
                        notification.

           3.    Use all other available means of public warning as time permits. Emergency
                 messages may be relayed to radio and TV stations through the Emergency
                 Manager. The Emergency Broadcast System may be used in large-scale incidents,
                 but requires activation by the County Emergency Manager.

VI.   ONGOING RESPONSE

           1.    Containment - When possible, the substance should be prevented from spreading.
                 Containment methods may include:

                 a)     Using dikes and booms to stop product flow.
                 b)     Using drains.
                 c)     Digging trenches to direct product flow
                 d)     Using booms to stop travel of product on water surfaces.
                 e)     Diverting streams
                 f)     Using portable catch basins
                 g)     Re-orienting the container
                 h)     Patching or plugging the container
                 i)     Using overpack drums, etc.

           2.    Efforts should be made to control the spread of contamination, including
                 equipment, personnel, and ambulances.

           3.    The Incident Commander should be informed of all off-scene actions taken ( such
                 as evacuation status ) and should see that the EOC ( if established ) and Public
                 Information Officers have current information. Facility representatives and
                 spokespersons need current information, and response specialist ( such as the EPA
                 or NRT ) should be briefed as necessary.

           4.    Initially, the financial burden for response rests with the municipality. Every
                 effort should be made to determine the responsible party for the incident, so that
                 reimbursement claims can be initiated. Accurate records should be maintained of
Scarborough Emergency Plan                           - 66 -                                 Nov-10
                 resources used. If at all possible the responsible party should be involved with
                 support services so that it is clear who is financially responsible for any and all
                 services provided.




Scarborough Emergency Plan                             - 67 -                                 Nov-10
VII.   RESOURCES

           1.    A County-wide listing of hazardous materials resources is under development by
                 the Cumberland County Emergency Management Agency and will be
                 incorporated upon its completion.

           2.    Specialty personnel and equipment may be available through various federal
                 agencies. Agency phone numbers are included in an attachment at the end of this
                 section.

VIII. COUNTY SUPPORT FOR OPERATIONS

           1.    County Emergency Management can interface with the following, and is available
                 as a liaison:
                 a)       Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department
                 b)       State Police
                 c)       Emergency Broadcast System
                 d)       County / Town LGRS
                 e)       County / Town Special Emergency
                 f)       Fire Service
                 g)       Forestry Service
                 h)       Portland Water District
                 i)       Central Maine Power
                 j)       Civil Air Patrol
                 k)       State LGRS
                 l)       Amateur Radio
                 m)       National Guard

           2.    County Emergency Management may be used to contact or interface with State
                 and Federal agencies (such as CHEMTREC, DEP, EPA, etc.) to help reduce radio
                 traffic on a departments primary frequency.

IX.    MEDIA RELATIONS

           1.    Efforts should be made to control media and public access to the scene.

           2.    A media vantage point should be established at the scene to coordinate reporters
                 covering the story. All reporters should be restricted to this area as a matter of
                 safety, as well as for coordination of information released. When approved by the
                 Incident Commander, reporters may be escorted near the scene perimeter for
                 filming.

           3.    One spokesperson should be designated to coordinate with all others to ensure
                 accuracy and consistency of information. Some companies may have a policy that
                 press relations be handled by the Company spokesperson rather than allowing
                 responder speculation as to the causes of the accident. When possible, these
                 policies should be indicated in the facility-specific attachment to this plan.



Scarborough Emergency Plan                           - 68 -                                Nov-10
           4.    If a news helicopter appears to be at risk or is threatening the scene, the Portland
                 Jetport should be contacted to restrict air space near the incident.

           5.    Requests for information on friends and relatives in the risk area may be
                 forwarded to the local Emergency Manager.




Scarborough Emergency Plan                             - 69 -                                Nov-10
X.   INCIDENT FOLLOW-UP

           1.    The On-Scene commander, in cooperation with other responding agencies
                 (especially the DEP), will determine when it is safe for evacuated citizens to re-
                 enter the risk area. Consideration should be given to:

                 a)     Acceptable residual levels
                 b)     Existing and potential conditions
                 c)     State and industry recommendations


           2.    Public notification must be made of any threat to food or water supplies if surface
                 and ground water supplies and food are suspected to have been contaminated by a
                 toxic chemical release.

           3.    Some extremely hazardous substances may contaminate the environment and pose
                 a long-term threat to the people living in that area for a substantial period of time
                 until the area has been decontaminated, has decayed, or weathered to minimal
                 levels. State and Federal assistance would be required to aid relocated
                 populations.

           4.    Initial environmental assessment may be made by the Maine Department of
                 Environmental Protection (DEP), the Coast Guard, or the U. S. Environmental
                 Protection Agency (EPA) in the event of a transportation incident. If the incident
                 occurred at a facility, that facility will initially determine the impact of the
                 incident.

           5.    If necessary, the DEP will determine who is responsible for cleaning up an
                 incident site. The DEP will monitor cleanup or treatment operations to ensure
                 that approved procedures are followed and that a selected disposal site meets
                 safety standards.

                 a)     If a fixed facility is involved in the incident, it is responsible for
                        coordinating and financing all cleanup operations, including treatment of
                        contaminated soils and off-site transportation of contaminated products.
                 b)     In a transportation incident, the On-Scene Commander may secure private
                        contractors for cleanup as appropriate, although initial financial
                        responsibility will rest with the municipality. A list of cleanup contractors
                        is attached. Cleanup and displacement techniques may include dredging,
                        excavating, skimming, pumping, dispersion, dilution, and vacuuming.


           6.    A review of response actions and a critique of the incident should be coordinated
                 by all agencies and departments involved in the incident. Plans should be updated
                 as appropriate.

                  Hazardous Substance Emergency Response Plan

                Guide for Proper Protection Level of Chemical Suits



     A.    Level “A”
                          Totally Encapsulating, Vapor tight Chemical Protective Suits


           To be selected when the greatest level of skin, respiratory, and eye protection is required.
                  This suit should be used when:


           1.     The hazardous substance has been identified and requires the highest level of
                  protection for skin, eyes, and respiratory system based on either the measured or
                  potential for high concentrations of atmospheric vapors, gases, or particulates. Or
                  site operations or work functions which involve a high potential for splash,
                  immersion, or exposure to unexpected vapors, gases or particulates of materials
                  that are harmful to the skin or capable of being absorbed through the skin.


           2.     Substances with a high degree of hazard to skin are known or suspected to be
                  present, and skin contact is possible.

           3.     Operations are being conducted in confined, poorly ventilated areas, and the
                  absence of conditions requiring any other level of protection have not yet been
                  determined.


     B.    Level “B”

                  Non Vapor-tight encapsulating suits or hooded chemical coveralls with SCBA.


           To be selected when the greatest level of respiratory protection is necessary, but a lesser
           level of skin protection is needed. Level B suits should be used when:

           1.    The type and atmospheric concentration of the substance have been identified and
                 require a high level of respiratory protection, but less skin protection.

           2.    The atmosphere contains less than 19.5 % oxygen.

           3.    The presence of incompletely identified vapors or gases is indicated by direct
                 reading organic vapor detection equipment, but vapors and gases are not
                 suspected to contain high levels of chemicals harmful to the skin or capable of
                 being absorbed through the skin.

       C.   Level “C”

                   Hooded coverall or splash suits with air purifying respirators.

            To be selected when the concentration and type of airborne substances are known and the
            criteria for using air purifying respirators are met. They should be used when:

            1.     The atmospheric contaminates, liquid splashes, or other direct contact will not
                   affect or be absorbed through any exposed skin.The types of air contaminants
                   have been identified, concentrations measured, and an air purifying respirator is
                   available that can remove the contaminants.

            2.     All criteria for the use of air purifying respirators are met:

                   a)      Atmosphere contains more than 19.5 % oxygen.
                   b)      Mask has proper cartridge for the identified chemical.
                   c)      Concentrations of contaminants in parts per million do not exceed the
                           exposure limits as established by the manufacturer.


       D.   Level “D”

                   Normal Fire Fighting Gear

            To be selected when the concentration and type of substances are known to require no
more        than this minimum amount of protection.

Absolute Pressure         Gauge pressure plus atmospheric pressure, abbreviated PSIA -true pressure
Absorption                Taking in toxic material by contact with the skin
Air Bill        A shipping paper prepared from a bill of lading that accompanies each air shipment
Air Inversion             A meteorological condition in the earth’s atmosphere in which the temperature of the air
                          some distance above the earth’s surface is higher than the air temp. at the surface.
                          Normally, air temperatures decrease as altitude increases. Such a condition traps air and
                          released gases and vapors near the earth’s surface, thus impeding their dispersion.
Air-reactive material     Substances that will ignite at normal temperatures when exposed to air.
Ambient Temperature The normal temperature of the environment
Asphyxiant                Substances that can cause death through displacing the oxygen in the air to a level of
                          less than 18%. (normal oxygen level is 21%)
Atmospheric Pressure The pressure caused by the weight of the air elevated above the earth’s surface. At sea
                          level it equals 14.7 lbs. per square inch (psi)
Autoignition Temp.        The same as ignition temperature
BLEVE           Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion. A container failure with the release of
                          energy, often rapidly and violently, accompanied by a release of gas to the atmosphere
                          which may be followed by ignition (fireball) and propulsion of the container.
Blow Down Valve           A manually operated valve whose function is to quickly reduce tank pressure
Boiling Point             The temperature at which a liquid changes to a vapor state, at a given pressure.
                          Flammable materials with low boiling points generally present extreme fire hazards.
BTU                       British Thermal Unit. The amount of heat necessary to raise one pound of water 1° F.
Breakthrough              The penetration of challenge material through a gas or a vapor air-purifying element
                          or fabric. The quantity or extent of breakthrough during service life testing as a %.
Bung                      A cap or screw used to cover the small opening in the top of a metal drum or barrel.
CAS                       Chemical Abstracts Service. An organization which indexes information on chemicals.

                               Emergency Management Agency

                                 Resource Management Annex

I.     PURPOSE

       To provide for prompt and effective acquisition, distribution and use of personnel and material
       resources for essential purposes in the event of an emergency. Some resources have already been
       defined in the various other annexes. Additional information will be referenced in other annexes
       as they are written.


II.    SITUATION AND ASSUMPTIONS

       A.     Situation

              In the time of an emergency, all local resources will be utilized, and when they have been
              exhausted, Scarborough will call upon County for assistance with resource needs. The
              Town and County resource inventories are up-dated throughout the year and will remain
              as current as possible.

       B.     Assumptions

              As Scarborough runs out of resources they should call in their mutual aid. In times of
              emergency, especially when many jurisdictions are involved, as in a hurricane, mutual aid
                     will be stretched beyond its limits. The County should then be contacted with a
request of
              needs. The County Director, or designated representative, will work to accomplish
                     acquiring the required resources.

III.   CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS

       A.     General

              Consistent with County and State plans, when the Town of Scarborough cannot provide
              the assistance needed, it should call County for assistance. Department Heads should
keep          records of all resources implemented, who where, when, etc. The storage, maintenance,
              and replacement of equipment and materials will be decided between Scarborough and
the                   supplier. The Emergency Management Agency Director will coordinate
resources,
              including protective equipment, that is listed in the resource inventory.

       B.     Phases of Management

              1.     Mitigation
                     Scarborough should be responsible for identifying special needs, and identifying
                     deficiencies in their resource inventory.
                 2.    Preparedness
                       Each department should prepare for increased readiness to any situation, including
                              conducting an inventory of resources (including source and quantity) and
update                        such annually. They should also set up procedures for repair and
restoration of
                       essential services and vital facilities, identify facilities that could be expanded into
                               emergency centers for disaster victims and additional personnel and
volunteers, and                        identify location and availability of earth moving equipment, etc.


                 3.    Response
                       a)    Requesting County and State assistance where local resources are
                             insufficient to meet response needs.
                       b)    Use of resources for special and critical facilities.
                       c)    Logistical support for Emergency Operations Center (EOC) staff and
                             personnel deployed to disaster sites.

                 4.    Recovery
                       a)    Paying off costs incurred.
                       b)    Requesting County and State assistance when local resources are
                             insufficient to meet recovery needs.
                       c)    Reconditioning, replenishment, and replacement of equipment and
                             materials.
                       d)    Post disaster evaluation of resource shortfalls.

          C.     Interjurisdictional Relationships

                 1.    Planning Area
                       Scarborough should plan both intramunicipal areas and business/industrial areas
to                            include transportation resources.

                 2.    Operational Areas
                       These consist of municipal and minor civil divisions. It includes identifying
staging                       areas and pickup points for persons without means of transportation.

                             Emergency Management Agency

                          Emergency Public Information Annex


I.    PURPOSE

             To establish procedures for distributing emergency and non-emergency information to the
                    public as efficiently and as accurately as possible. This annex also provides
procedures
             for coordinating public information with the media and other departments that could
             become involved.
II.   SITUATION AND ASSUMPTIONS

      A.   Situation

           1.    The citizens of Scarborough speak English as the primary language. At present
                 there is a small percentage of the population that are hearing impaired. The
                 population of Scarborough increases dramatically during the summer tourist
                 months.

           2.    Scarborough has one radio station and no local TV stations, but does lie within the
                 broadcast area of the Portland Maine stations. The local paper is the Scarborough
                 Leader which is printed weekly. Many residents subscribe to the Portland Press
                 Herald daily paper.

           3.    Radio communications can occur between the Scarborough EOC and the County
                 EOC, so that messages can be relayed to the Emergency Broadcast System (EBS).

      B.   Assumptions

           1.    During emergencies, the public will demand and will need information about the
                 situation, including instructions on proper survival or response actions.

           2.    The media may demand information about the status of events, public safety
                 measures, etc., in fact, the demand for information could be overwhelming if
                 procedures are not in place to deal with requests. The media can play an
                 important part in keeping the public informed before, during, and after an
                 emergency. If interested reporters are not kept informed, there is a possibility that
                 rumors and/or panic could spread. This plan is written on the assumption that the
                 media will be willing and able to keep the public informed.

           3.    This annex assumes that telephone communication will remain open during an
                 emergency, since the Emergency Broadcast Station (WTHT FM 103, Portland)
                 requires a phone call to request activation of the Emergency Broadcast System.

           4.    It is assumed that the people of Scarborough will have the capability to tune into
                 an EBS station.




Scarborough Emergency Plan                            - 132 -                                Nov-10
III.   CONCEPTS OF OPERATION

       A.     General

              1.     During an emergency, public information will generally be specific to the event.
                     Information should be instructional in nature, although efforts may be make to
                     keep people informed of the progress of events.

              2.     Information should be presented as accurately and as positively as possible, and
                     efforts should be made to control the spread of rumors.

       B.     Phases of Management

              1.     Mitigation
                            As much as possible, ongoing efforts should be made to keep the public
                            informed of possible emergencies and how to respond to them. An
                                   informed public will be better able to take action during an
emergency.                                Public affairs brochures are available from County and
State Emergency                                   Management Agencies, and can be distributed
before and during an                                      emergency.

              2.     Preparedness
                     a)     Plans, procedures, checklists, contact lists, and standby public instructions
                            have been prepared as part of this annex. Instructional information is also
                            available through County EMA.
                     b)     Capabilities have been developed to provide immediate emergency
                            information to as much of the public as possible.
                     c)     Options include:
                            (1)     Public service announcements on Portland TV and radio stations
                            (2)     Use of the Emergency Broadcast System through the County EOC
                            (3)     Instructions may be printed and passed out to the public prior to an
                                    emergency
                     d)     During an emergency of longer duration, local and County newspapers
                            may be able to print emergency instructions.

              3.     Response
                     a)    In the event of a public emergency, local officials and the Emergency
                           Manager will determine the best method to notify the citizens of
                           Scarborough. Possible options are:
                           (1)     Radio and TV broadcasts, including EBS
                           (2)     Mobile public address
                           (3)     Door to Door notification
                           (4)     Pre-printed instructions
                           (5)     Handouts, distributed at traffic control points during an evacuation
                                   and/or when evacuees return to their homes.




Scarborough Emergency Plan                               - 133 -                                Nov-10
                      b)     One person should be designated to distribute information and instructions
                             to the public and to work with any reporters covering the incident.
                      c)     Public information should be given according to priority:
                             (1)     Lifesaving and safety instructions
                             (2)     Emergency status information
                             (3)     Other useful information, either from the government or in
                                     response to media requests.
                      d)     A media center may be established at the EOC or at the scene of the
                             incident. This should be the point of contact for all reporters.

                      e)     The Emergency Broadcast System should be used only in very large scale
                             disasters. In most cases, public service announcements are a better option.
                             The decision to activate the EBS must be made by the Emergency
                             Manager or the County Emergency Manager.

              4.      Recovery
                      a)    Following an emergency, public information should include information
                            on restoration of essential services, return to evacuated areas, and
                            assistance programs that may be available.
                      b)    When time allows, a review of the emergency public information system
                            should be conducted, and this annex should be changed as appropriate.

IV.     ORGANIZATION AND RESPONSIBILITIES

        A.    Incident Commander

              The ultimate responsibility for emergency information belongs to the Incident
Commander                    who sets policies and directs the Public Information Officer in carrying
them out. The                       Emergency Manager has responsibilities for the EOC and
emergency communications.                    Initial public warning is addressed in the Communications
& Warning Annex of this plan.

        B.    Public Information Officer

              A Public Information Officer or spokesperson will be designated by the Incident
              Commander and will act under that person’s supervision. The PIO is responsible for the
              activities of the emergency public information system. During an emergency the PIO
will:

           1.    Establish an information center as the point of contact for reporters. This may be
                 at the EOC or at the scene of the incident.

           2.    Collect, evaluate, and relay information and instructions to the public with the
                 approval of the Incident Commander.

           3.    Work with reporters as necessary.

           4.    Coordinate with the Emergency Manager to accurately relay information between
                 the different agencies who have information to distribute

           5.    Distribute printed emergency information materials

           6.    Verify incoming information before releasing it to the public or reporters

           7.    Clear all information with the Incident Commander before releasing it to the
                 public or to reporters

           8.    Inform the public about places of contact for missing relatives, continued
                 emergency services, restricted areas, etc.

           9.    Monitor media broadcasts for accuracy, and when appropriate, correct any
                 inaccurate statements and prevent the spread of rumor

           10.   Keep records of all actions taken for future reference. A permanent record should
                 be kept at the EOC


                 During non-emergency periods, the PIO should coordinate on-going public
                        education with the County PIO. Programs are available through County to
address                        public safety in a variety of emergencies.




Scarborough Emergency Plan                           - 135 -                                  Nov-10
     C.    Coordination of emergency public information

           1.    On the scene PIO’s will coordinate among themselves and will normally release
                 emergency information from a single location. Representatives from the Red
                 Cross, Salvation Army, Utility companies, and other response organizations
                 should be available at this location.

           2.    If the County or State Emergency Management Agency activates a Joint
                 Information Center, or if the Governor’s Press Secretary acts in that capacity, the
                 spokesperson from Scarborough should coordinate emergency information before
                 releasing it. In an emergency with statewide impact, the Governor’s Press
                 Secretary may establish a State Information Center which must coordinate
                 information from the Local Information Centers.

           3.    The State Public Information Officer will summarize the disaster situation and
                 report on state agency response activities. The State PIO will also coordinate with
                 FEMA and provide support to local spokespersons on request.

           4.    The FEMA PIO will provide information on Federal response efforts and will
                 coordinate with State and local PIO’s.

V.   ADMINISTRATION AND LOGISTICS

     A.    Lines of succession

                 In the event that the designated emergency information spokesperson cannot
                 perform the assigned duties, the position would be assumed by the Emergency
                 Management Director or his representative.

     B.    Policies

           1.    It is the policy of the Town of Scarborough to cooperate fully with the media by
                 providing complete and accurate information.

           2.    All information released must be verified and approved by the Incident
                 Commander.

           3.    Media relations and emergency information for local incidents will be the
                 responsibility of the local spokesperson until assistance from the County PIO is
                 requested or accepted.

           4.    Emergency information will be presented as positively, yet as accurately as
                 possible.

     C.    Sites of Operation

                 The local spokesperson should coordinate emergency information from one
                        location. An information center may be established on the scene of the


Scarborough Emergency Plan                           - 136 -                               Nov-10
incident, at                           the EOC, or in another location determined suitable. This
information center
                        should be the one place where reporters can be briefed and can gather information.


       D.     Preservation of Records

                        The local spokesperson should log all media contacts, save copies of any press
                        releases, and should keep a record of any information released to either the press
or                      the public. Other departments that issue press releases should forward a copy to
the                     local spokesperson, although other departments are responsible for their own
                        records regarding media contact.

VI.    PLAN DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE

              1.        This annex was developed by the Scarborough Emergency Manager, and will be
                        maintained by the Scarborough EMA. It should be reviewed, exercised, and
                        updated annually by the Emergency Manager. Any revisions will be distributed to
                        all those who have a copy of this annex. A log of revisions must be maintained
                        and kept with this annex.

              2.        The Emergency Manager is responsible for coordinating this annex with all other
                        agencies that have similar plans.

Scarborough Emergency Plan                     - 138 -                        Nov-10
                              Town of Scarborough
                          Emergency Management Agency

                                    Evacuation Annex

I.    PURPOSE

          1.     To provide for the orderly and efficient evacuation of any portion of the Town of
                 Scarborough.

          2.     To provide a planning base for any type of evacuation that might be necessary.

          This Annex is part of Scarborough’s Comprehensive Emergency Operations plan, and is
          intended to be used in conjunction with other annexes. Reception and Care operations
are              outlined in the Shelter Annex.

II.   SITUATION AND ASSUMPTIONS

          1.     There are many hazards that could necessitate an evacuation of some or all of the
                 population of Scarborough. Local areas near industrial facilities include Pleasant
                 Hill Rd., Industrial Park, Payne Rd., with other spot locations

          2.     A vast area of the Town of Scarborough is subject to flooding and is included in
                 the 100 year flood zone.

          3.     Major transportation routes include the Maine Turnpike, Interstate 295, U. S.
                 Route One, State Rt. 114, and Rt. 22. The Maine Central Railroad runs directly
                 through the center of Town, and we are in close proximity to the Portland
                 International Jetport.

          4.     The circumstances and amount of warning time will determine the evacuation
                 procedures.

          5.     Additional transportation resources will be necessary to assist those who do not
                 leave in their own vehicles, and those who are handicapped. Special
                 considerations will have to be given to institutionalized populations.

          6.     The public will be instructed and informed via procedures established in the
                 Warning Annex and the Emergency Public Information Annex.

          7.     Some people may refuse to evacuate.

          8.     Certain vital and essential facilities and activities in the evacuation area may be
                 required to continue as a function of the evacuation effort or to provide essential
                 goods or services.
III.   CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS

       A.     General

               Evacuation may prove to be the only practical means of protecting people from the effects
                       of some disasters. Evacuation may be necessary when any portion of the public
would be                       in extreme danger as a result of exposure to a hazard. The decision to
evacuate may come                      from the Governor of Maine or the Town Manager based on the
recommendation of the                         Emergency officials in the field. The primary means of
transportation will be by private                    automobile, although some portions of
Scarborough’s population will require other
               organized means of evacuation.

              Upon the recommendation to allow re-entry, priority will be given to returning essential
              workers, then hospitalized patients, prior to return of the general public.

VI.    MUNICIPAL POLICIES

           1.     An evacuation may be authorized by the President of the United States, the

                  Scarborough does have an ordinance which empowers a designated official to
                  order an evacuation.

           2.     Those who refuse to follow evacuation instructions will be left alone until all who
                  are willing to leave are provided for. Then, time permitting, further efforts will be

           3.     Existing deficiencies are:
                  a)     Liabilities and impracticality of exercising at full scale.
                  b)     Community-wide lack of training in evacuation

                            Appendix B - Transportation Policies



1.    The transportation Coordinator is Roy Nelson. He has the responsibility of all public evacuation
      transportation. At present, the capacity of school busses is;
             22 - 66 passenger; 1 - 36      passenger; 1 - 20 passenger; 1 - 12 passenger
      Including other vehicles the total number of seats would be approximately 1650

2.    It is estimated that up to 25 % of the population will be in need of public transportation.

3.    Special populations (hospitals, nursing homes, schools, etc.) and groups that may require special
      attention will be evacuated by the Police and Fire Departments. Transportation of these special
      populations will be coordinated by the Evacuation Coordinator.

4.    Transportation of essential workers, equipment, and resources to and from an evacuated area will
      be by department vehicles or whatever method is deemed appropriate at that time.
      Any vehicle preventing flow of traffic will be towed on the order of the Police Chief.

5.    When determined appropriate by the Evacuation Coordinator, re-entry will be in the following
      order:
             a) essential workers by department vehicles or private autos
             b) critical care patients by same means as evacuated
             c) residents by private auto and public transportation
             d) animals (picked up at pet shelters by owners)

6.    Potential impediments to evacuation include poor weather and tourists/visitors unfamiliar with
the   area. In the case of poor weather, multiple evacuation routes may need to be established to move
      more people from the area without losing time. Mutual aid may be necessary for traffic control.

                         Appendix D - Special Evacuation Populations


1.     Local institutions include:

       a) Pine Point Manor
       b) Kaler Vaill Home
       c) Maine Veterans home

       Special attention will be required at the above facilities. The possibility exists that a large
              number of ambulances will be required at some of these facilities to evacuate the entire
              facility in a timely fashion. In-place sheltering may be an option to seriously consider,
       depending on the situation.


2.     School Children

       For a short-term evacuation with little or no lead tome, children will be transported from the
       schools to the reception area. In many cases the schools will be designated as the shelters,
               so that transportation will not be necessary.

      In the event the children are moved, parents will be instructed to meet the child at the
      reception area, instead of the school. Communication with the parents is essential. In the
              event of a long-term evacuation every effort will be made to return children to their
homes                 prior to evacuation.


3.     Animals

       The Police canine officer is responsible for any animals that need shelter. Most people
       who evacuate by independent means to private homes or relatives outside the evacuation
       area will most likely take their pets with them. In some cases the animal would be the
       safest if placed in a cellar with food and water. Animals who require shelter may be
       evacuated by the owner and sheltered at the Westbrook Animal Shelter. No provisions
       have been made for farm animals.

                                Emergency Management Agency

                                             Shelter Annex
PURPOSE

               To establish procedures for providing shelter protection and emergency lodging and
               feeding for evacuees displaced as a result of emergency conditions or disaster situations.

               This Annex must be used with other Annexes of this plan if it is to be effective.

Situations And Assumptions
Situations
It is the responsibility of municipal governments to protect their citizens by providing shelter in response
to emergencies.
Potential congregate care facilities and reception centers have been identified by each municipality.
Some shelters have been identified as offering suitable protection from most hazards (weather,
hazardous materials, etc.) excluding radiological fallout. The National Shelter Listing of fallout shelters
is unreliably out-of-date.
The Town of Scarborough has developed an agreement with the Red Cross for the selection and
management of shelters. The Red Cross is charged by an act of Congress to carry out a system of
disaster relief, and will play an integral role in providing emergency shelter for all disasters EXCEPT in
situations which present hazards to the volunteers.
The municipal government must be prepared to provide shelter service when the Red Cross is unable to
meet shelter needs.
There are two types of sheltering situations, those which require protective facilities to protect people
from a hazard (storm, fallout), and those which only have lodging and feeding requirements. In some
situations, in-place protective sheltering would be more appropriate since it would not require
movement through a hazard area. When shelters are required for radiological protection, radiological
monitoring must occur. Survey meters are stored and are available for distribution to shelters when
deemed appropriate by the Emergency Management Director.
Assumptions
Small scale localized incidents may require evacuation and lodging of a small population, whereas a
major disaster would require lodging and feeding of large masses.
FEMA references indicate that in localized incidents, as much as 50% of the population may
spontaneously evacuate and seek shelter with family or friends rather than go to an established shelter.
The remainder will wait for instructions on evacuation routes, destinations, and shelters.
In some situations, time might not allow for activation of public shelters, or there may be inadequate
shelter spaces available. In such cases, the public would have to be instructed of in-place sheltering
techniques.
CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS
General
In the event that an evacuation of an area is necessary, provisions have been made for the sheltering and
care of evacuees. In addition, a skeleton fallout shelter system exists to support civil defense efforts in
time of war.
Phases of Management
Mitigation
County Emergency Management will:
Inform citizens of the availability and locations of shelters through a strong, ongoing public information
program.
Establish an emergency public information system for announcements about shelter locations.
Scarborough Emergency Management will:
Identify reception areas.
Identify shelter and feeding facilities.
Identify trained Radiological monitors and shelter managers.
Maintain current resource lists - identify agencies, personnel resources and physical resources.
Draft announcements with facilities to guarantee access and availability of staff during emergencies.
Maintain a list of buildings which could be upgraded to protective shelters.
Encourage shelter considerations in architectural design, especially in buildings constructed with public
funds.
Preparedness
Scarborough Emergency Management shall:
Review shelter lists, identify short and long term facilities, identify lodging and feeding resources.
Identify campgrounds to serve as reception areas, draft agreements with owners.
Prepare operating procedures for shelters.
Coordinate training of shelter managers and radiological monitors. Obtain necessary materials for
implementation of shelter manager training programs.
Coordinate an emergency public information system with the media.
Outline a procedure for stocking shelters in an increased readiness phase.
Coordinate with Red Cross to assure that they are involved with shelter selection and management
responsibilities.
Determine shelter requirements for registration, food, water, radiological monitoring, medical, health
care, and sanitation.
Assemble shelter management materials and stockpile supplies.
Identify suitable protective shelters for various types of hazards (Is a reception center adequate, or are
sleeping and eating facilities required?), review shelter protection and upgrading needs.
Maintaining preparedness plans and operating procedures for shelters, including crisis marking,
stocking, reception, and care.
Response
Scarborough Emergency Management shall:
Select shelters, assign managers, distribute Shelter Managers Handbook.
Open and staff shelters and reception areas that the Red Cross is unable to establish.

Coordinate the distribution of shelter materials and supplies.
Recovery
Deactivate unnecessary shelters and have evacuees return to homes when it is deemed safe by municipal
officials.
Clean, repair, and restore shelters to original condition. Return borrowed equipment, and replace used
supplies.
Complete shelter expense reports and submit them for payment to the Red Cross for Red Cross operated
shelters, and the the local Emergency Manager for shelters operated by the municipality.
Prepare a report of all activities.
Continuity of Government
Designation of responsibilities and lines of succession in a shelter should follow the recommendations
listed in this Annex.


Scarborough Emergency Plan                                 - 158 -                               Nov-10
The municipal EOC will be the primary operational site for coordinating local sheltering efforts. The
County EOC will be activated for county-wide sheltering efforts.
Each reception center or shelter will be considered an independent operational site and should have a
reasonably structured management organization.
DIRECTION AND CONTROL
General
The Scarborough Emergency Manager is responsible to the Town Manager. He is responsible for
coordinating planning by other agencies and departments.
The Shelter Coordinator is appointed by the Emergency Manager to oversee shelter operations and
provide support in planning. Under most circumstances, the Shelter Coordinator will work out of the
EOC. Supporting agencies’ staffs will work under the direction of the Shelter Coordinator. All
sheltering activities should be coordinated through the Shelter Coordinator or the Emergency Manager.
Shelter Managers will be responsible for the operation of their individual shelters.
The government of each municipality should be prepared to assist shelter operations, and should be
prepared to offer resources.

       A.     Coordination

              1.      The County EMA will coordinate with the Red Cross and the local Emergency
                      Manager for sheltering responses. County EMA will receive information and
                      supplies from State EMA, and will distribute them to local Emergency Managers
                      as appropriate.

              2.      The local Emergency Manager will coordinate with municipal officials, school
                      systems, other facility owners, and the Red Cross.

              3.      The Red Cross will coordinate with municipal governments, school departments,
                      individual shelter owners, and will provide a liaison in the EOC during emergency
                      activation.

              4.      Communication with some shelters may be limited. Law Enforcement and Fire
                      Departments may help obtain mobile and portable radios for emergency
                      communications in shelters.




       B.     Reports

              The following records should be kept by the Shelter Manager:




Scarborough Emergency Plan                               - 159 -                              Nov-10
           1.    Personnel records - a list of the shelter population

           2.    Expense records

           3.    Tools and equipment borrowed or loaned.

      C.   Personal Comfort

           1.    Due to shortages of available blankets, citizens requiring overnight shelter should
                 be pre-warned and advised to take their own blankets and/or sleeping bags with
                 them to a shelter.

           2.    Until shelters are supplied with long-term food provisions, food supplies may be
                 obtained from grocery stores, restaurants, and distributors.

Scarborough Emergency Plan                            - 162 -                              Nov-10

           2.    Deficiencies
                 a)     The State plan is not complete. Existing shelter lists are outdated due to
                        lack of Federal, State, and local funds to maintain a shelter system.
                 b)     There are no shelter supplies stocked in NSS shelters.
                 c)     Shelter areas are not built into new structures, primarily due to apathy and
                        lack of building codes.
                 d)     There has been minimal training in shelter management, although
                        opportunities are offered. Few people are prepared to assume
                        responsibility of a shelter.

Scarborough Emergency Plan                                     - 167 -                                  Nov-10
    Town of Scarborough
Emergency Management Agency

   Communications Annex
I.    Situations and Assumptions

      A.   Situations

           1.    The community has emergency service radios for localized emergencies and a 24
                 hour warning point. In addition, the Emergency Manager has communications
                 capabilities with County EMA and the Emergency Managers of other
                 communities.

           2.    The 24 hour warning point has been established locally to receive weather and
                 attack information from the Cumberland County Primary Warning Point. This
                 point is presently located at the County EMA bunker in South Windham. When
                 the Local Warning point receives a message, the dispatcher will attempt to notify
                 appropriate officials.

      B.   Assumptions

           1.    Locations from which emergency communication systems are operated should
                 have on-site emergency power and fuel.

           2.    Dispatchers and members of the public should be familiar with local warning
                 signals and with sources of emergency information.

           3.    All radios are tested on a regular basis. The alternate means of communication
                 would be via telephone and the back up systems at the communication center.

II.   ORGANIZATION AND ASSIGNMENT OF RESPONSIBILITIES

           1.    The local Emergency Manager, under direction of the Town Manager, has the
                 overall authority for the local EOC and its emergency communications center.
                 This person should designate a Communications Officer, who will be responsible
                 for the activities in the communications center, and who may also act as the
                 Warning Officer.

           2.    The Emergency Manager is responsible for:
                 a)    Locating the Local Warning Point at an installation that is manned 24
                       hours a day.
                 b)    Providing the Local Warning Point with a current emergency notification
                       roster of key EMA and local officials to minimize the time needed to alert
                       them.
                 c)    Establishing an audible alarm system capable of being heard by all citizens
                       in the community.
                 d)    Coordinating a notification system for areas not covered by the outdoor
                       warning system.
                 e)    Educating the public to recognize warning signals and systems, and to be
                       aware of associated protective actions.
                 f)    Testing systems on a routine basis to check operability and to familiarize
                       the public with them.


Scarborough Emergency Plan                          - 170 -                               Nov-10
           3.    Volunteer radio operators will be the responsibility of the Communications
                 Officer. Radio operators who are representatives from other agencies should be
                 responsive to the guidance of the Emergency Manager, and should observe any
                 procedures associated with this plan.

           4.    The County EOC may support communications by acting as a liaison between the
                 community and outside response agencies. County communications capabilities
                 are:
                 a)    Cumberland County Sheriff
                 b)    State Police Car-Car (Game Warden, National Guard Helicopters)
                 c)    Emergency Broadcast System
                 d)    County/Town LGRS
                 e)    State Fire
                 f)    Forestry Service
                 g)    Portland Water District

III.   TESTING

           1.    Radio drills will be coordinated by the County EMA to test equipment and
                 maintain familiarity with communication procedures. Drills should include any
                 local staff and volunteers who would be available during an emergency.

           2.    The County/Town net is opened with the following announcement:
                       “This is KCI 275 / KCH 381, Net control for the Cumberland County
                       Emergency Management Network, calling the net for a scheduled drill.
                 All   stations stand by for roll call.”

           3.    Towns will be asked to report staff members present, the high, low, and average
                 RADEF readings, then the exercise will proceed.

           4.    When closing the net, County will announce:
                         “This is KCI 275 / KCH 381, net control for the Cumberland County
                         Emergency Management Network. The net has been in operation for a
                         scheduled drill. There being no further business, the        is declared

VI.        Communication Policies

      A.   Policies

           1.    On County/Town Emergency Management radios, each Town is addressed by the
                 Town name. Cumberland County EOC is addressed as County.

           2.    At the end of a communication, each operator should sign off by transmitting the
                 FCC call sign complete (such as KCH 381) followed by the word CLEAR

           3.    All messages processed between towns should be assigned a precedence or
                 priority. The following precedents shall be used:
                 a)      EMERGENCY- any message which demands immediate transmission and
                         who’s delay would adversely affect current operations. Messages should
                         be brief.
                 b)      ROUTINE- all messages which are not urgent, such as situation reports.
                 c)      EXERCISE- all messages used in training activities. Such messages must
                         be preceded by the statement “TEST EXERCISE”.

           4.    Reference groups are indicated by time (in military time) followed by the date.
                 Example 23194APR86.

      B.   INCOMING MESSAGES

           1.    Copy the message on a message form, filling in the appropriate spaces. In a circle
                 in the area marked “internal use only”, initial the form and indicate the time the
                 message was received.

           2.    Remove the yellow copy, to be filed. Forward the white copy to the Message
                 Coordinator.

           3.    This person should log the message in an “incoming message log”, then write the
                 log page, line number, and the time the message was logged in a circle in the
                 “Internal Use Only” space. The white copy should then be forwarded to the
                 Emergency Manager, who will determine the appropriate actions and distribution.




Scarborough Emergency Plan                           - 174 -                               Nov-10
       C.   OUTGOING MESSAGES

            1.   Write the precedence on the OUTGOING line.

            2.   Indicate destination (Town, County, or State Agency) If the message is to ALL
                 TOWNS, two more white copies of the message are necessary.

            3.   Write the message, using as few words as possible. If the message is an answer to
                 a question from another headquarters, the first words of the text should make
                 reference to that message (ie: “reference your message 23194APR86”).

            4.   After “Date” enter the reference group of the outgoing message.

            5.   After message is complete, sender should keep copy #2 for the file. Copy #1
                 should be forwarded to the Message Coordinator, who will log the message and
                 give it to a radio operator. When necessary, the Emergency Manager may
                 coordinate the messages between various sections and/or agencies before the
                 message is sent.

            6.   The Message Coordinator should enter the appropriate information in the
                 OUTGOING log, and write the log page, line number, and time the message was
                 logged in the “Internal Use Only” section of the message form.

            7.   Radio operators on County/Town nets must verify that all Towns received the
                 message so addressed.

            8.   For ease in sorting and filling messages, each radio operator should number them.
                 The first message of each day (0000 hours) will be #1.

            9.   After dispatching a message and receiving acknowledgement, the radio operator
                 should initial the form and indicate the time the message was dispatched.

VII.   EMERGENCY FANOUT

            1.   A State-wide warning fan out system is in place to notify municipal officials of an
                 emergency. There are three types of messages:
                 a)     A FAN-OUT test occurs twice a month on the NAWAS system, and is
                        conducted by MEMA. This test generally stops at the Primary Warning
                        Point.
                 b)     A WEATHER WARNING may be initiated by the National Weather
                        Service (NWS), MEMA, or County EMA. Message is relayed over State
                        Fire frequency or phone.
                 c)     EMERGENCY MESSAGE is initiated by NAWAS, MEMA, County
                        EMA, or the Primary Warning Point over State Fire or phone.




Scarborough Emergency Plan                           - 175 -                               Nov-10
           2.    The County fan-out is executed by the Primary Warning Point on State Fire
                 frequency (154.31) to all communities with that capability. The communities
                 without State Fire capability are contacted by phone.

           3.    On receipt of a warning from the Primary Warning Point, a message form should
                 be completed by the dispatcher receiving the message. A copy of the completed
                 message form should be forwarded to County within 24 hrs.

           4.    Local warning procedures should be initiated by contacting the localofficials,
                 staff, and other communities as required.

           5.    Termination of a warning will be issued by State or County EMA and fanned-out
                 over the warning system.

           6.    Unannounced tests and exercises will be conducted periodically. The term
                 FANOUT will be used to describe the drill. A typical Fanout message may read:
                 “Attention all stations. This is a FANOUT TEST. Time____ Date____”.

           7.    Immediately upon receipt of a FANOUT TEST, the local warning point should
                 relay the message as outlined below:

                                    Scarborough Dispatcher
                                              |
                                 Scarborough EMA Director
                                              |
                                       Deputy Director
                                              |
                             Staff and Local Officials as required


VIII. PUBLIC ATTACK WARNING

           1.    The Attack Warning Signal will be sounded if an accidental missile launch
                 threatens Cumberland County with a possible detonation, if the County is
                 threatened by missile impact without detonation, or if radioactive fallout is
                 expected within an hour because of a detonation in another area.

           2.    In the event of an actual attack, the following text will be disseminated over the
                 County warning system. “ATTENTION ALL STATIONS. EMERGENCY.
                 THIS IS AN ATTACK WARNING. REPEAT THIS IS AN ATTACK
                 WARNING. TIME IS:______ AND DATE _____”.

           3.    This warning is used to notify civilian authorities that an actual attack against the
                 USA has been detected and protective action should be taken immediately.

           4.    The local warning point should acknowledge the message by answering with it’s
                 name, followed by the words “ATTACK WARNING”.

           5.    On receipt of an ATTACK WARNING, the local warning point should
                 commence public warning by activating any and all siren and horn systems. In the
Scarborough Emergency Plan                            - 176 -                                 Nov-10
                 Town of Scarborough the fire horns are used. In other communities the siren
                 signals are as follows:
                 a)      ATTENTION/ALERT SIGNAL a 3 - 5 minute steady tone. This shall be
                         sounded at the option and on the authority of local municipal officials.
                 b)      ATTACK WARNING SIGNAL a 3 - 5 minute wavering tone, sounded on
                         receipt of an attack warning from the Primary Warning Point.

           6.    Citizens should be familiar with these warnings and should know to take cover
                 and/or listen to a local radio or TV stations for more information.

           7.    The following actions should be taken by the Local Emergency Manager:
                 a)     Activate local warning systems.
                 b)     Verify that public officials have been alerted to the emergency.




Scarborough Emergency Plan                         - 177 -                                 Nov-10

                 d)     Tune into local radio or EBS to gain additional information transmitted
                        nationally.
                 e)     Time permitting, close schools and send students home.

           8.    Instructions for warning of a missile launch (no threat to Cumberland County)
                 a)      The message transmitted over NAWAS is lengthy, therefore the County
                         Warning Point will use the following text: “ATTACK WARNING -
                         MISSILE LAUNCH - ADVISE POPULATION TO TAKE COVER
                         IMMEDIATELY.”
                 b)      Each warning point will answer the call with it’s name followed by the
                         words “MISSILE LAUNCH”. At this point, initiate standard local
                         warning procedures.
                 c)      In the event of a missile launch to parts of the US not in the threatened
                         area, and where no protective actions are required at this time, County will
                         disseminate the following text: “ATTENTION OR ALERT -
                         ACCIDENTAL MISSILE LAUNCH - CUMBERLAND COUNTY NOT

Scarborough Emergency Plan                              - 179 -                            Nov-10
                               Town of Scarborough
                           Emergency Management Agency
                                     Disaster Recovery Annex

I.      PURPOSE

               To outline the procedures for quick and efficient recovery from a disaster, including
               damage assessment, disaster assistance, and hazard mitigation.

II.     SITUATIONS AND ASSUMPTIONS

               During and following a disaster, timely response is necessary to activate disaster
resources                    and to provide for the comfort and safety of the victims.

III.    CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS

               1.     As soon as a disaster is recognized, efforts must be made to provide for victims of
                      the incident and to assess impact. Local organizations and private agencies will
                      be involved in these activities until resources are expended, at which point,
                      mutual aid and subsequent State and Federal aid may be activated.

               2.     Phases of Management for Disaster Recovery
                      a)     Mitigation
                             Coordinate recovery response plans between emergency services, and
                             among disaster assistance organizations.

                      b)      Preparedness
                              Review recovery plan. Coordinate available resources. Alert mutual aid
                              communities.

                      c)      Response
                              Activate recovery systems, damage assessment teams, and disaster
                              assistance organizations. Utilize resources and mutual aid pacts
efficiently.                          Request State and Federal aid when local resources and capabilities
have                                  been taxed.


               3.     Recovery
                            Review recovery plan and responses and modify plan as necessary.

                       assistance from Cumberland County EMA when local resources are expended.
                       The State EMA will assist when local and County capabilities have been
                       exceeded. Once State resources are exhausted, a presidential declaration will be
                       requested, and Federal programs may be activated.

              2.       Disaster recovery efforts beyond the County will be coordinated jointly by State

and updated as necessary. A record of all revisions will be maintained with the annex.




Scarborough Emergency Plan                               - 185 -                                Nov-10
                                   Disaster Recovery Annex

                             Appendix 1 - Damage Assessment


I.      PURPOSE

             To provide procedures for the assessment of damage resulting from disaster, as well as
for                 the assessment of the disaster’s human impact (casualties, homeless, unemployed
as a                result of the disaster, etc.).

II.     SITUATION AND ASSUMPTIONS

        A.   Situation

             During and following a disaster, efficient damage assessment is necessary to expedite a
             request for a disaster declaration. Without a declaration, Federal response, support, and
             funding will not be made available.

        B.   Assumptions

             The timely and accurate assessment of damage to public and private property will be of
vital        concern to local officials following a disaster, and will have bearing on the manner in
             which recovery is effected.

III.    CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS

             1.     An initial appraisal must be conducted by local personnel to determine the need
                    for immediate aid and to estimate the magnitude of the situation. Information
                    should be gathered by the community and forwarded to the County EMA. This
                    survey should include:
                    a)      Number and types of casualties.
                    b)      Public and private property damage or destruction.
                    c)      Evacuation and shelter status.
                    d)      Radiation levels.
                    e)      Contaminated areas and levels.

             2.     If the degree of damage appears to warrant a Disaster declaration, then a
                    Preliminary Damage Assessment (PDA) will be conducted by State, Federal, and
                    local personnel.

             3.     A detailed damage survey will be conducted by State, Federal, and local personnel
                    to establish a basis for a declaration request. At this point it is necessary to place
                    monetary values on damages to determine eligibility for Federal recovery
                    assistance.
IV.   PHASES OF MANAGEMENT

      A.   Mitigation

           1.    Establish a damage assessment program.

           2.    Emphasize the need for development or enforcement of building codes and land
                 use regulations.

           3.    Disseminate emergency response information to the public and to local officials.

      B.   Preparedness

                 damage assessment purposes.

           6.    List critical facilities which would require priority repair if damaged.

      C.   Response

           1.    Coordinate local damage assessment efforts.

           2.    Compile damage reports as quickly as possible and forward that information to
                 County EMA.

      D.   Recovery

           1.    Review and coordinate submission of documents to County EMA.

           2.    Keep accurate records of requests for Federal assistance.

           3.    Monitor restoration activities.

                                Appendix 3 - Hazard Mitigation

I.     PURPOSE

               To eliminate hazards that constitute a significant threat to citizens of Scarborough and / or
                      reduce the effects of unavoidable hazards through a program of hazard mitigation.

II.    SITUATION AND ASSUMPTIONS

               Mitigation can protect people from disasters by:

               1.      Eliminating the hazards or reducing the frequency and / or severity of their
                       occurrence.

               2.      Protecting people who come in contact with a particular hazard.

               3.      Altering the way people live in order to avoid the hazard altogether.

III.   CONCEPT OF OPERATION

                Hazard mitigation is oriented toward the future, and is intended to minimize threat on a
                long-term basis, ie. mitigation is not a quick fix to make it through the next disaster.
                Mitigation generally will occur on the local level through ordinances and policies.
                        Mitigation can occur as a single-purpose project to be completed in a certain
period of time.                It can occur as an ongoing process, or it can occur as part of a repair and
restoration                    process following a disaster.
IV.   RESPONSIBILITIES

      A.   Community

           1.    Fund mitigation projects.

           2.    Draft and ratify local ordinances.

           3.    Monitor compliance with mitigation standards and regulations.

           4.    Evaluate the performance and local costs of mitigation efforts.

           5.    Search for mitigation resources (manpower, materials, funds, skills).

      B.   Emergency Management

           1.    Inform and educate the public.

           2.    Assist community in identifying potential hazards.

V.   ESTABLISHING A HAZARD MITIGATION PROGRAM

           1.    Survey the jurisdiction to determine types of hazards and potential impact.

           2.    Map hazard areas and make these maps available to developers, community
                 officials, the public, and other interested parties.

           3.    Develop a hazard mitigation program which establishes objectives and policies as
                 part of the jurisdiction’s development process.

           4.    Assign priority for corrective and preventative actions.

           5.    Work with other communities as appropriate to undertake multi-jurisdictional
                 approaches to mitigation. Carefully delineate responsibilities of all involved
                 agencies and organizations.

           6.    Review local codes and ordinances to ensure that regulations controlling new
                 development recognize the presence of hazards in the community.

           7.    Establish codes, as necessary, to protect structures from hazards. An example
                 would be a local site selection review process for construction projects involving
                 hazardous materials or in locations subject to natural hazards (such as a flood
                 plain).

           8.    Work with community planners in developing a master plan to formulate future
                 land-use policies to prevent or limit construction projects in hazard-prone areas.

           9.    Provide homeowners with informational material and conduct workshops or
                 seminars to encourage the incorporation of hazard mitigation techniques in
                 maintenance, repair, and home improvement projects.

           10.   Promote fire prevention by enacting local ordinances requiring sprinklers smoke
                 and heat detectors, where appropriate, in buildings in the community.

           11.   For jurisdictions at risk of serious flooding, participate in the National Flood
                 Insurance Program and adopt and enforce a flood plain management program to
                 make flood insurance available.

XI.    Amateur Radio Emergency Services

       A.     Description:


       The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) is a volunteer radio communications service
       available to Federal, State, County, and local Governments. Nationwide over 25,000 amateurs
       have voluntarily registered their services and formed an organized pool of operators to provide
       reliable primary or secondary communications links during emergencies. In Cumberland County
       there are over 60 members registered.

Scarborough Emergency Plan                               - 218 -                             Nov-10
      B.     Logistics:


      In the past Scarborough has found the services of this organization to be very helpful. During
      Hurricane Gloria we used a number of these people for additional communications capabilities.
      During an emergency the local radio frequencies become taxed very quickly. At times they are
so    congested emergency traffic has trouble getting on the air. With the capability of HAM operators
at    the EOC and in the field, we can deal with the non-essential traffic in an efficient manor.
      All of these volunteers have their own equipment and would bring it to the EOC as needed. We
      are also exploring the addition of an antenna link to be placed on the tower at the EOC to provide
      better reception.
