THIS IS A TEST
Today, the feds conducted their nationwide Emergency Alert Systems (EAS) Test and as expected it was no big deal.
However, today’s EAS Test should be a call to action, a reminder of the need to be prepared for all emergencies.
Several years ago, Ranch Matters published multiple stories that dealt with the lack of PLANS, PROTOCOLS and PROCEDURES on the part of Ranch Management and/or the Board of Directors.
We pointed out that according to CRR’s Policy & Procedures Handbook, Section 4.11,
“The Ranch Manager will normally be the FIRST RESPONDER to any emergency or crisis on Association property or with any staff.”
“The Board will be brought into the emergency/crisis response planning and direction as soon as the initial crisis response has been addressed…”
WORDS ON PAPER
As an aside, Manager/First Responder Judy Lapora does not live on the Ranch.
The Safety and Security of Association members lives and property has been a controversial issue for many years.
A volunteer safety/security program that was in the early phase of development was dismissed and intentionally sabotaged.
We are living in strange and unsettling times. We face an array of potential emergencies-local, as well as global in nature.
Shouldn’t Crisis Management be a Ranch Priority?
WHAT ARE RANCH OFFICIALS PRIORITIES?
*Raising and Collecting DUES?
To name a few.
Why hasn’t the Ranch Management/Board of Directors addressed this serious issue?
ARE THEY BLATANTLY IGNORING THE SAFETY NEEDS OF THE RESIDENTS?
