Emergency Response Planning Workshop

The S2 Emergency Response Planning (ERP) Workshop is designed with two aims. First, instruct security, emergency management, and risk management professionals in the dynamics of emergency response and critical issues in preparing for crisis situations at the facility-level. Second, assist organizations in developing or improving current emergency response plans and supporting infrastructure.

The information presented in this course reflects best practices in emergency management as applied in both the government and commercial sectors of the security industry.

As an interactive workshop program, attendees will participate in a series of in-class exercises designed to assist students in assessing their organization’s readiness, infrastructure, and authoring effective facility emergency response plans (ERP).

Topics include:

Principles of Emergency Management • Risk Assessment • Emergency Team Planning • Emergency Communications • Facility Design & Preparations • Functional Planning • All-Hazard Event Planning • Emergency Event Procedures • Employee Training • Drill and Exercise Planning

NOTE: To achieve best value from this course, bring your current facility emergency response plans for use during in-class exercises. As one of the major benefits of this workshop, attendees graduating this course have opportunity to achieve a significant head start in authoring new and improved facility-specific emergency response plans.
