With not less than 150 words respond: When is a Shelter In Place plan used? Add a video you found.* In not less than 75 words give your personal opinion to Carrie Charles and Shelly Houck Shelly Houck Choosing to take shelter is necessary in many emergencies. Such as COVID-19, which has killed more than 8,000 people as the disease sweeps across the world, has prompted cities and areas everywhere to take action, ordering quarantines and lockdowns in an effort to keep people indoors and curb the spread of the coronavirus. Sheltering is appropriate when conditions require that you seek protection in your home, place of employment or other location when disaster strikes. Sheltering outside the hazard area could include staying with friends and relatives, finding a hotel or staying in a mass care facility operated by disaster relief groups. The length of time you are required to shelter may be short, such as during a tornado warning, or long such as during a winter storm or a pandemic. It is important that you stay in shelter until local authorities say it is safe to leave. Take turns listening to radio broadcasts and maintain a 24-hour safety watch. Carrie Charles A Shelter In Place plan is used when there is any type or emergency situation or a natural disaster. A great example of a emergency where a Shelter In Place plan would be and has been used is the COVID-19 pandemic going on in the US. People are being quarantined to their homes to stay healthy and to keep from spreading the virus. The states have been on lock-down to keep people from spreading the virus from one state to another, and only essential workers are allowed to work. An example of a natural disaster where a Shelter In Place plan would be necessary would be a tornado. During a tornado people need a safe place to go to be safe form the damage a tornado can do. an example would be a strong structure with no windows or doors. Also, being in a low lying structure would be helpful. The video that I found for a Shelter In Place plan is below. Carrie
