Emergency Safety Plan

In the event of an emergency:

The City of Olean is providing the following information in an effort to encourage citizens to plan for unexpected emergencies. Families with school-age children should be familiar with their school’s emergency plan. Although local officials do all they can to help, it is really up to you when it comes to the comfort and safety of your household.

HAVE THE FOLLOWING SUPPLIES FOR ANY EMERGENCY:

If you need to evacuate your home or are asked to "shelter in place," having some essential supplies on hand will make you and your family more comfortable. Prepare a disaster supplies kit in an easy-to-carry container such as a duffel bag or small plastic trash can.

TERRORISM:

SHELTERING IN-PLACE:

If asked to stay indoors ("IN-PLACE SHELTERING"). Seal your house so contaminants cannot enter. Close and lock windows and doors. Seal gaps under doorways and windows with wet towels and duct tape. Seal gaps around windows and air conditioning units, bathroom and kitchen exhaust fans, and stove and dryer vents with duct tape and plastic sheeting, wax paper or aluminum wrap. Close fireplace dampers. Close off nonessential rooms such as storage areas, laundry rooms and extra bedrooms. Turn off ventilation systems.
