Emergency Plan For Charlton

Emergency Plan for Charlton:

The Town of Charlton uses CodeRED to send EMERGENCY notifications by phone, email, text and social media to keep citizens informed of emergencies such as an evacuation notices, utility outages, water main breaks, fire or floods, chemical spills, or other emergency situations.
CodeRED can be found on GooglePlay and the App Store.

Fire Plan

i.e unattended fire pit with no water/sand bucket nearby or a fire that a fire extinguisher cannot stop, leave the area and immediately locate any DRMA guide or employee. Do not return to the fire or attempt to rescue any belongings, we value your safety first.

Flood Plan

Immediately go to higher ground, whether it’s the parking lot area, or the “Sniper’s Nest” if you are stuck between the river in the forest. Remain calm and attentive to any instructions that are given to you. Do not attempt to swim in the waters for risk of injury of debris. Rushing waters can pull cars and sweep dangerous chemicals and waste and exposure can be very dangerous.

Do not remain in any buildings if there is an emergency, unless instructed to do so.

In any emergency situation, a Guide will call Hold to get the attention of nearby players and instruct them in the direction they need to remove themselves. Do not continue to remain in-game and continue your activities unless the guide was given instruction to release the hold call. We do this to ensure our players are safe.

Contacting Employee & Walkie Talkie Codes

During the event, there would be a necessary situation where a certain employee is needed. There should never be a hesitation to contact us, however if this customer service desk has the capabilities of assisting you, use the resources here to help!

Here at Dystopia Rising Massachusetts, we also incorporated a walkie talkie system. Ops, Post office, One Employee and One Rules Guide always have one walkie on them in case of communication needs.

In the event you need to contact someone, have a guide call on the walkie.

Walkie Talkie Codes/

When setting up the Walkie Talkies, always leave all devices on channel 7. That is our general line.

In the event someone on the device wants a private conversation, the caller tells the receiver which channel to move to, then when the private conversation is done, have both parties return back to channel 7. Ensure you let all parties on channel 7 know which one you are moving to in case someone needs to contact again.

Gabu calls Channel 7: Hey I need to talk to the rules guide on the field. Move to channel 4 please!
Billy Bob responds: Rules to Gabe, Moving over.
-Conversation happens-
Aaron (Ops Guide): Ops to Gabe, I am on channel 4 to let you know, there is a player needing your help with something at the customer service desk!
Gabe: Okay! Thank you! I’m coming back to Ops in 5 minutes.
All parties return back to channel 7 for general conversation.

Kitchen Policy

Use of the Kitchen

Many camps have a kitchen available on site, if you would like to cook for yourself, or for your group. If you are interested in using it, here is some important information:

  • Drink Water. Dehydration can cause exhaustion and pain(among other things), which will really interfere with your weekend experience. It's also important to drink water, not just soft drinks. Most non-water beverages are diuretic, which means you aren’t getting as much water as you think you are.

  • Eat real food. Snack foods like candy and chips can lack the necessary nutrients to compensate for your increased activity levels during the weekend. Make sure you’re eating fruits, vegetables, grains, and proteins to maintain your energy levels throughout the entire weekend. Raw fruits, veggies and trail mix are quick, portable foods, as is cheese and jerky.

  • Eat healthy food. Make sure your body is getting all the vitamins and nutrients it needs to stay healthy. If you can’t get fresh fruit and veggies into your face, then consider a multi-vitamin. Zinc (found in nuts and seeds) is important for preventing colds and other gamer plagues. Potassium helps prevent muscle cramps. Good sources of potassium include bananas, bell peppers, apricots, and papaya. Dried apricots and papaya can be added to your trail mix, along with raisins (for extra energy) and Brazil nuts (for added protein), to get your energy up quickly between horde attacks without sugar crash.

  • Everyone has permission to use the microwave and the dish sink. Usage of the fridge is okay so long as you sign in with the document found at the Bar area or on the side of the fridge itself.

  • If you want to make something more involved, you must email a copy of your ServSafe Certification to our Logistics Employee. As per site rules, you cannot use the stovetop or oven if you do not have one of these certifications. If you do have one and emailed that ahead of time, you can sign up for usage at the Public Works. You should indicate what time you'd like to cook, how much you'll be cooking, and what equipment you'll be using to cook it. If you do not schedule a cooking time and hand in your certification, you will not be permitted to cook.

  • Check in with the Coordination Guide both when you begin to cook, and when you've finished cleaning up.

  • All dishes and equipment should be cleaned, dried, and put away after your cooking time.

  • Please do not use any equipment that you do not know how to use, and especially do not use any equipment that you do not know how to properly clean.

  • The kitchen is an out-of-game area. This means you do not have to stay in character while using the kitchen.

  • Because there are a number of potential safety hazards in the kitchen (i.e. the grill, knives, pots), the kitchen is a non-combat zone. This means you should not hide in the kitchen to get away from combat.

  • Do not walk through the kitchen, and do not loiter in the kitchen if you are not actively cooking or cleaning.
