RSF-9 to the Charleston County Recovery Plan Re-Entry and Security Plan
EMERGENCY RE-ENTRY and SECURITY
The purpose of this plan is to provide guidance to local and state agencies for an incident that has caused a large scale evacuation of Charleston County and the return of those citizens in an orderly and efficient re-entry and the security of Public and Private Property.
To quickly evaluate and assess the immediate human needs (food, water, health/medical, and housing) and the operational status of vital community infrastructure (transportation, communications, and utility systems). To assist impacted localities with the restoration of essential services. To plan for and implement, when possible, the return of evacuees to their homes.
III. SITUATION AND ASSUMPTIONS
Each municipality is responsible for conducting its own immediate needs assessment to determine re-entry restrictions. This assessment will determine if the locality is safe to permit re-entry of residents, property/business owners. However, state and federal assistance may also be available to assist or to conduct such an assessment. State participation will be coordinated by SCEMD and federal participation by DHS/FEMA. This plan is designed for the return of residents following an evacuation prior to a hurricane but may be modified to address other large evacuations.
