Preparedness 1801 W. Airline Hwy. • LaPlace, LA 70068 • www.sjbparish.com/emergency

If You Are Told to SHELTER-IN-PLACE...

You should protect yourself inside your house or some other building. This is a good action to take if there is a short release or small amount of hazardous material in the air. If your children are in school, they will be protected by school officials. Take these steps to protect yourself.

Go inside if you are outside. When inside, stay inside until your radio or TV says you can leave safely. This is most likely to be no more than a few hours, rather than a day or more.

Close all doors and windows. Taping cracks or openings will provide more protection.

RadioTurn off heating, cooling or ventilation systems.

Do not use fireplaces. Put out the fire. Close the dampers.

Listen to your local radio or TV stations for further instructions:

 If You Are Told to PROTECT YOUR BREATHING...

Turn off heating, cooling or ventilation systems.


 

Risk Management Planning (RMP) is a federal regulation from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which became effective in 1999. RMP’s goal is to keep the community informed of risks by requiring companies to provide the public with information regarding hazards 0and risks. Communication is a key aspect of this regulation. Preventing accidental chemical releases and minimizing the effects of accidents is our main focus in protecting residents and the environment. There are several layers of safety and environmental protection in place to assure our plants are safe and risk is kept to a minimum.

 Five R’s summarize our basic practices:

  • REMOVE risk by changing, modifying or improving work processes.
     
  • REMOVE risk by minimizing the amount of chemicals stored on-site.
     
  • REMOVE risk by substituting listedchemicals with non-hazardous or less hazardous chemicals.
     
  • REMOVE risk by continually training in areas of safety and environment.
     
  • RESPOND to risk by training to properly handle chemicals. In the event of a release,  we can respond quickly and effectively.
