Risk Reduction

Tings to do before armaggedon actually comes:

  • Fire alarms? Last checked?
  • Access to flat roof?
  • Last maintenance for plumbing, electrical and last inspection by fire department.
  • Where is the master switch located?
  • Phone Tree- we need to collate all staff/directors phone numbers in a phone tree for emergencies. Plus we need emergency contact numbers updates from all staff members put into the database as well as the phone tree.
  • Fire Drills- when was our last one...never.
  • Cut-off switches and valves for electric, gas, water?
  • Disaster supplies?
  • Have our exit signs been check recently?
  • Do we have fire doors?
  • Where are the fire extinguishers and first aid kits? We should produce a map of locations. When where they last checked? This should be the responsibility of the first aid attendants.
  • Post in various places names, locations and phones numbers of landlord, local fire department, local police department and local emergency room.

Fire Procedure

  • An alert and educated staff is Free Geek's most valuable resource for fire protection. Fire hazards arise from unsafe conditions and practices. Fire hazards include, but are not limited to:

SMOKING: This activity is permitted only in specifically designated areas.

STAIRWAYS: Never block stairway entrances, even temporarily. No obstructions should be left on steps or landings. Fire doors should always remain closed.

CORRIDORS: Corridors, hallways, and aisles must be kept clear of all obstructions (e.g., office furniture, bicycles, compressed gas cylinders, etc.) which might present a fire hazard and impede escape routes.

STORAGE AREAS: Areas used for storage should be kept clean and orderly. Accumulation of trash, rags, or debris of any type is a hazard and an unsafe condition.

EQUIPMENT:

  • a. Electrical cords should be placed away from aisles or other pedestrian walkways.
  • b. Never use electrical cords that are frayed or have exposed wiring.
  • c. Do not overload electrical outlets by using multiple extension cords, etc.
  • d. Perform regular maintenance on all equipment. Promptly remove/repair defective equipment.
  • e. Understand and use all pertinent safety precautions when using electrical appliances and equipment.

LOADING DOCKS: In many facilities, exits are located near loading dock areas. These areas must be kept clear of all obstructions (e.g., pallets, trash, debris, etc.) that may present a fire hazard and impede escape routes.

ALARMS

  • Even though Free Geek has sprinkler systems and fire alarm devices, these systems do not ensure all emergency/fire situations will be suppressed. To ensure the safety of employees, there will be a complete evacuation of the facility during an alarm situation.
  • Failure to see fire or smell smoke does not mean a threat to your safety is not present. Alarm situations could be the result of:
  • In the event of an alarm/fire employees should practice the procedures associated with the acronym “RACE”.
  • R Remain calm, do not panic. Rescue persons in immediate danger.
  • A Alarm… Activate the nearest MANUAL PULL STATION and notify the fire department by dialing 9-911 (“I want to report a fire at…”); Inform other occupants.
  • C Contain fire at point of origin by closing all doors and windows.
  • E Evacuate the facility using established procedures. Extinguish fire by using a portable fire extinguisher. (Unless you have been properly trained, never attempt to use a fire extinguisher) Report fire/pull alarm first; extinguish after. Never attempt to extinguish a fire unless you can do so safely.

Zombie Apocalypse Procedure

  • Keep calm and help others keep calm.
  • Equipment specific to Zombie Apocalypse: Machetes, axe, baseball bats (aluminium or wood), chainsaw, remington 879, desert eagle 357, M-1 Garand, Colt .45 m1911, M 240, signal flares, claymore mines, samurai swords (two per staff member), flame thrower (optional), cyanide capsules for when it all doesn't go as planned and sunglasses purely for esthetics.
  • When they arrive, MUSTER. Make sure all your gear is gathered, all staff rendezvous in the mezzanine at Free Geek. Last person in will barricade the door and set the first four claymore mines. Surviving staff will head to roof and then have an equipment check.
  • Drop rope ladder, seal off access to the roof. Activate hand cranked radio listen for news from the authorities. Wait for three days. If no instructions come after three days you can decide by consensus to either A.) Move to the Yukon and focus on repopulation activities, or B.) Launch a guerilla style campaign who's sole objective is to move Zombie hoards back below the U.S. boarder.
