If civil unrest or natural disasters cause the evacuation of USAID and US Embassy personnel, what evacuation assistance is available to Recipients?
Everyone should have a specific set of actions prepared in case of evacuation. Don’t forget to help your loved ones get out quickly if necessary! We have an evacuation chair for this case, which, I believe, should be in all buildings, and in the right amount! This is just an incredible help to people who are not able to quickly evacuate themselves
Recipients should immediately contact their Agreement Officer to obtain detailed instructions on how best to proceed. In the event that the Recipient is unable to reach the Agreement Officer, the Recipient should make its own decision as to whether to evacuate. Costs relating to an evacuation, like all costs must be reasonable and shall not exceed that which would be incurred by a prudent person under the circumstances prevailing at the time the decision is made to incur the costs. In determining the reasonableness of a given cost, consideration should be given to the totality of the circumstances, considering their responsibilities to the organization, its members, employees, and clients, the public at large, and the Federal Government.
