The key to any Emergency Response Plan is to:
1. Train based on your plan
2. Exercise based on your plan
An emergency management exercise is a simulation of a disaster, emergency, technology failure, breakdown in a business process, or any other scenario which requires an immediate action on your part to correct the situation in a timely and efficient manner. Our team will coordinate with your office to develop and conduct an exercise that caters to your needs. Upon completion of the exercise, our team will develop and distribute an After Action Review that contains an explanation of the exercise, as well as lessons learned and best practices developed as a result of the simulation.
Departmental and Organizational Emergency Response Planning--The planning process is based on a series of questions which identify the specific actions your group should take during a variety of emergencies which might occur on our campus. The process takes about 60 minutes to complete and, when we are done, your office will have a plan based on your needs, conditions and requirements. It is best if the session is conducted during a staff meeting or with a group of several of your departmental employees. Developing the plan as a team exercise makes it something that everyone is familiar with which, in turn, reduces the amount of training time needed. If you are interested in this planning opportunity, please email our department at firstname.lastname@example.org or send an email directly to email@example.com.
