MISSION and Responsibilities of the Entry Coordinator and Team

As an Entry Coordinator (with your Building Captains), you will have the following:

  • Suggested Personal Evacuation "GO BAG" (if told by authorities to evacuate immediately).  One per person in household

  • Duffle bag or backpack with all the emergency & first aid items needed to assist your entry residents (medical supplies, tools, etc.) when we shelter-in-place

  • Your own personal emergency supplies to shelter-in-place for up to 3 weeks

  • EPO Entry Coordinator Orientation & Guide (Revised Nov. 2018)


SAMPLE RESIDENT FORMS

These forms are intended as Guidelines and NOT official forms that every Entry Coordinator must follow. Every EC is encouraged to add, change or delete content to these forms as needed by the unique requirements of their entry. These revisions then stay within their entries and do not replace the generic versions on the EPO website.  EPO is a training organization and does not mandate Entry Coordinator operations or procedures in any entry or mutual.
