Emergency Response Program Stages of DevelopmentStage 4Stage 1Stage 3Stage 2

Like your Safety Management Program or Business Continuity Plan (BCP), your Emergency Response Program must be a broad-ranging and robust system to maintain readiness for emergencies. If you need to respond, you want to do it successfully, compassionately, and professionally. A comprehensive Emergency Response Program will accomplish this and help to answer the following:

  • When an accident or incident occurs, are you fully prepared to respond?
  • Have your executive decision-makers and managers been multi-tasked with responding to the emergency at hand while simultaneously executing your business continuity plan?
  • Has everyone been trained to respond to the emergency effectively, and do they know what to expect if one happens?
  • Do you have enough resources, manpower, and tools to protect your people, preserve your brand, and participate in the investigation?

As a Fireside Partners Program customer, you will experience what it is like to have an accident without experiencing the pain of actually having one. You will know how your internal resources should be utilized and what external resources you need to supplement your in-house response capabilities. Your team will be trained using real-life experiences, so your readiness to respond to an emergency will become second nature.

Your Program is comprised of four stages of development that build upon each other:
