Our Emergency Plan – Suidlanders [Noodplan]

 Prepping Lessons from South Africa...

The Suidlanders Emergency Plan (Noodplan) has been put together after many years of research and is written according to Civil Defence Law. It is considered as Civil Defence when a group is organised to administer a refugee flight situation. By becoming part of the Suidlander Emergency plan, you become part of a plan that will function legally according to international Civil Defence Law. We have staff countrywide who are personally prepared and receive training (or have received training) to be able to manage refugees, logistics, infrastructure, security etc.


Phase 1 – Regrouping in nearby area

Move to pre-determined rendezvous points in close proximity of the affected area. These areas can be manned for as long as it is safe to inform the uninformed and non-members that decide to join the evacuation because of anarchy and/or violence to provide them with direction and assistance to the next rendezvous point. Signs can be left behind to indicate the direction of evacuation. All members must know these rendezvous points as well as the direction to phase 2.

Phase 2 – Administration outside danger zone

This phase serves as a thoroughfare point and as a source of information to refugees to reach the second safe area. At that safe area in this phase, people can stay for longer depending on the circumstances. If possible, refugees will be placed under leadership in certain positions and convoy groups will be formed. Radio and other communication structures will be set up. All members must be aware of these areas.

Phase 3 – Safe Places

Phase 3 is in a safe area where people can stay for an extended period of time. An example of such an area is a farm that has been arranged beforehand and on which certain preparations have been made. Water, camping, food and communications infrastructure are important in these areas. All members in phase 3 are sorted under various leadership.

  1. Provincial leader
  2. 5-10 Regional leaders
  3. Group leaders as required.
  4. Each up to ten families in a group

A group leader might have less than 10 families but no more. When it becomes more, new group leaders need to be chosen to form new groups. It is important to identify leaders as soon as possible. In phase 3 radio communication needs to be established with Regional HQ. Regional HQ will coordinate movement and will in turn communicate with National HQ.


Part 2 – National violence and/or anarchy

Part 2 consists of an evacuation procedure where all regions and provinces are threatened by anarchy. This phase will not be reversible and will involve all members countrywide. All provinces within South Africa will be channeled to certain large areas across the country. These areas are predetermined, prepared and will then be manned. The purpose of this national leg of the Emergency Plan is to empower the refugees for security and self-reliance over a long period of time and in more than one large area in South Africa.

Phase 4

Members move from phase 3 safe areas to phase 4 regional receptions. On the way, depending on the route, people can report to administrative processing points. These points are simply thoroughfare points, but can be used as temporary stay overs depending on the circumstances. During phase 4 flight coordination will be managed by refugee managers and regional HQs who in turn communicate with with national HQ but national HQ will maintain a observational stance. Provincial leaders and their chosen confidants will be aware of the location of these points and areas.

Phase 5 – Reception and administration at Safe Area

This phase consists of reception at the safe area border and various processes and administration will be handled here. Refugee allocation and placement happens in this phase.

Phase 6 – Securing area inside set Safe Area

Phase 6 consists of certain predetermined  rescue and empowerment actions to implement the long term goal of security and self-reliance. Staff will constantly be trained for these purposes.
