Why Your Business Should Have an Emergency Readiness Profile
An ERP (Emergency Readiness Plan) is a method of planning for emergencies long before they occur. It’s a carefully devised, well-rehearsed strategy that guides you and your employees to take decisive action during a catastrophe. This well-oiled machine will give any employee in the building the necessary tools to effectively handle an emergency.
DETERMINE PROTECTIVE ACTIONS
In addition to emergency phone numbers, shut-off areas, and preventative procedures it is necessary to create an ERP that protects anyone in the building. The Department of Homeland Security refers to this as “Protective Actions for Life Safety,” including:
- Fire Drills -- Rehearsals for action during a fire.
- Sheltering -- Sheltering staff during a natural disaster.
- Sheltering in Place -- Sheltering staff during a man-made emergency.
- Lockdown -- Eluding an active shooter
