Workplace emergency procedures in case of alien invasion were recently introduced in my office:
Alien Invasion (Event I)
The chances of a full-scale Event I are slim but still possible. It may not be a question of “if” but rather “when.” There are substantial reports worldwide that a small-scale Event I have already taken place and that activities are still being conducted covertly. These claims have been further supported with videotaped evidence and such documentation has been popping up on all media channels with dire frequency.
This appendix will address only the steps staff should take in the event of a full-scale Event I, whereby our planetary security is threatened. It does not include any instructions on what to do in the event that humans are turned into automatons or of hostile organisms taking on the shape and semblance of a human. In these cases refer to Appendix Z and/or pandemic and/or hostile intruder policies.
Motivations for an Event I to occur may include: destruction, survival, harvesting, enslavement, breeding and/or assimilation.
As major cities are terrorized and entire regions possibly wiped out, paranoia, mayhem and conflict will ensue, resulting in the rapid breakdown of civil society
Visible signs of Event I may include but are not limited to:
- Enormous disc-shaped objects appearing over cities of the world
- Shaking of buildings, rattling of windows and knocking down of poorly secured items on bookshelves and in cabinets. The air may vibrate.
- Possible de-activation of electronic devices and power outages
As an Event I threat is likely to emerge from air, any route out of the city centre may place escapees directly in the path of potential danger. Until the scope of the Event I threat can be confirmed, retreat from the downtown peninsula is not recommended.
Thus, the emergency procedure for an Event I scenario is comprised of four stages, as outlined below.
Stage 1: Confirmation and Readiness
Notification of Event I will most likely be picked up first on radio, television and social media channels. The Communications Manager is tasked to confirm for possibility of hoax or rumour.
If Event I is confirmed and taking place:
- Communications Manager will alert the Receptionist.
- Receptionist will notify all staff via phone system and call for staff to convene immediately in the boardroom.
- Attendance should be taken immediately to ensure that all staff is present
If Event I has begun before assembling in the boardroom is possible:
- Seek cover quickly! Event I will most likely be by surprise. Crawl under desks and solid furniture or hide behind concrete walls. Running outside or being out in the open are not recommended.
- Stay as calm as possible. Panicking will not help the situation and will definitely call attention to yourself.
- Above all – do not engage hostiles. Any attempt to negotiate a peace treaty will most likely be faced with extermination.
Stage 2: Take Cover and Wait It Out
Once the first wave of attack has subsided, staff will quickly assemble in the boardroom, where attendance will be taken and casualties assessed. Remaining staff will then make their way to the library on the second floor to bunker down inside the Stockade of Last Absolute Resort. (SOLAR) Instructions on how to seal SOLAR is described in Appendix Z.
All military and armed forces will most likely be engaged in combat. Additionally, there will most likely be a breakdown of security and medical services. The likelihood of the appearance of any emergency personnel is slim to none, so self-sufficiency will be important.
Stage 3: Evacuation
When the chaos outside has quieted, staff will then exit the SOLAR refuge. As hostiles will most likely concentrate on subduing large cities, it is imperative that staff make their way out to remote areas or areas of seclusion. Living off the land may be a real possibility.
Stage 4: Prepare for Guerrilla Warfare
Upon leaving the SOLAR safe-room with supplies in tow, staff will open the adjacent storage room on the 2nd floor and additionally outfit themselves with camouflage tents, camping and survival equipment, combat vests and body armour.
Staff should also access the SOLAR kit described in Appendix Z. Please note that items in this kit should be used only by staff trained to use them. Other staff should be assigned items from the Z Kit described in Appendix Z.
It is imperative to save staff members who are technically and mathematically knowledgeable at all cost. These key staff may be able to form an understanding of hostile’s weaponry and/or structural engineering. Understanding and harnessing this technology may allow for counter-attacks.
Unlike the disaster scenarios illustrated in Appendices Z & G, should Event I happen, the anticipated outcome will be catastrophe on a global scale. Although the possibility of being outmatched mentally and technologically is more than real, all efforts must be taken to ensure the survival of the species.
