Action Plans for Specific Emergencies/Disasters

 Aircraft and Fallen Object Accidents
Aircraft and Fallen Object Accidents
  1. There is always a potential for aircraft, satellites, meteorites and other objects from the sky to crash or fall on the Mānoa Campus and its remote facilities. We need to plan for these types of disasters and occurrences as the University and its remote facilities may be located under aircraft flight paths.
  2. Warning
    1. There are no warnings for aircraft crashes and accidents.
    2. Warnings on possibilities of satellite and meteors entering the earth’s atmosphere will be provided by the national and local media. Serious warnings for the Hawaiian Island will be issued by SCD if warranted.
  3. Required Actions
    1. Aircraft crashes and accidents.
      1. Anyone seeing an aircraft crash or accident should call Campus Security at 956-6911. Provide the exact location of the crash/accident and if any fire, explosions or casualties were observed.
      2. All students and personnel should keep a safe distance from any aircraft crash.
      3. Campus Security will contact CERT members and be immediately dispatched as the lead CERT to the scene of the accident on campus or at any of the remote facilities.
      4. The CERT will take all necessary actions as specified in CERT Plans.
        1. Provide first aid and call 911 for medical, fire and police assistance as required.
        2. Ensure the safety of students and personnel. Evacuate buildings and/or area to protect people from fire, fumes and possible explosions.
        3. Request assistance from campus organizations such as Facilities and Grounds, Auxiliary Services and UHMS.
        4. As soon as time permits, report status to the EMT.
        5. Responsible persons in buildings where an aircraft accident occurs will request for or provide assistance to handicapped persons.
        6. The EMT Executive will decide if classes and/or operations will be suspended.
    2. Fallen satellites, meteorites and other objects.
      1. The EMT will receive advisories and warnings from national and local agencies concerning potential objects falling from the sky.
      2. The EMT Executive will decide if classes and/or operations will be suspended.
      3. If any objects falls on the campus or its facilities, Campus Security will be dispatched to the scene to determine if any emergency measures are necessary.
      4. Personnel on the scene should stay away from the object until it is inspected by Campus Security. Campus Security will provide status report to the EMT.
      5. The EMT will contact other government agencies for assistance as required.
