Emergency Preparedness

What to do/Where to report in an emergency situation:

During the course of supervision, emergency situations can arise that call for evacuation of a specific area.  Depending upon the nature of the emergency and your circumstances, one of the first important decisions is whether to stay where you are or evacuate. These types of emergencies can include natural disasters (hurricanes, forest fires), technological and accidental hazards, terrorist hazards, pandemics, and home fires.

In a situation where you have been mandatorily evacuated, please do the following:

Try diligently to contact your officer by phone to have permission to leave your approved residence.  If you do not have time to do so, please leave a message for your officer as soon as possible.
Make sure to leave a phone message on your officer’s work phone number, leaving a number for your officer to reach you and the address that you will be staying at, along with the date and time that you have left. Please call and leave another message with your officer when you have returned home.

If you have an approved evacuation address, please leave a message with your officer that you will be reporting to the evacuation site that was previously approved, along with that address and phone number.
Sex offenders need to have an approved evacuation site. If you do not, you may be able to report to a local state jail, but not all state facilities have these accommodations, so you must check in advance.

If you cannot leave a message with your specific officer, or the office you report to, please leave a message with the Duty Officer at the closest available MD/GA office.
