Emergency Preparedness

Employers should prioritize the development or updating of their emergency response plans.  To avoid being caught unprepared, emergency protocol should be a regular part of management’s communication with employees, and periodic drills should be scheduled to rehearse organizational response strategies.  Take the time to develop emergency and continuity of operations plans for your organization.   Such plans will ensure that your business is prepared to respond to the immediate threat of a disaster and sustain itself in the period thereafter. 

The following links provide the insights, tools and practical information you need to do this work.  Gathered from organizations including HI-EMA, the Red Cross, and the Department of Homeland Security, and more, these resources will help you ensure that your organization is prepared if and when the next emergency strikes.
