Proper and timely set-up will ensure that the GL is ready to provide services to evacuees when they arrive.
Depending on many variables, including the size of the disaster and response expected, the entire facility may or may not need to be set-up. The GL Manager, along with the management team, will determine clear actions for the first operational period, such as the services and set-up required. After the management team has determined the services to be provided, equipment, supplies, and a floor plan that is suitable for this response are identified. Each coordinator or supervisor is responsible for ensuring the set-up of their required areas.
