   Executive Summary


"Disasters take many forms. They're caused by gale force winds, sudden floods, releases of deadly chemicals, fire, ice, even upheavals of the earth itself. When disaster strikes, the best protection is knowing what to do."
FEMA   


Emergency Measures Planning

Fire Safety Evacuation Plans, Bomb Threat Procedures, Crisis Management, and establishment and continuous maintenance of an Emergency Control Centre (ECC), are basic elements to an effective Emergency Measures Plan.

The Plan must address:
  • I. Employee Safety and Public - Protection
  • II. Employee; Media; and Public - Information
  • III. Essential Services (Mission Critical): defined / assessed / prioritized for restoration / return-to-business plans developed (Disaster Recovery Plan-DRP).
  • IV. Continuity of Business - Plans Developed (Business Continuity Plan-BCP)
  • V. Essential Utilities and Special Services - Protected
  • VI. Have established; provisioned and tested; an effective Emergency Control Centre, for dealing with Crisies.
  • VII. Interface with First Responders (Fire - Police - Ambulance Services), must be addressed, ensuring Command and Control (Emergency Management) processes are clearly defined and tested well in advance of their requirement.
