Emergency Response Planning
At SMI, we believe that failure to prepare equates to preparing to fail. As part of our core areas of expertise, SMI will review and re-write your organization’s existing Emergency Response Plan (ERP) and incorporate new components as may be needed and update the entire document to reflect current national standards. This up-dating procedure will address the new methodologies for developing preparedness and response capabilities as outlined in the newly revised National Response Plan (NRP), the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the National Preparedness Guidelines (NPG).
At a minimum, SMI strongly believes that any emergency operations plan should:
- List coordinated agencies;
- Identify responsibilities for agencies, teams, and employees;
- Comply with government regulations;
- Ensure proper communication and continuity between intergovernmental and interagency response teams;
- Describe local population notification procedures;
- Identify containment procedures (fire, chemical, biological, radioactive, flood, etc.); and
- Describe response actions and back-up measures.
Additionally, the plans should establish links to government agencies to facilitate interagency and intergovernmental planning, training, exercising, coordination, and information exchange.
SMI is proud to have nationally recognized subject matter expert Pablo Gonzalez as our Director of Crisis Management and Emergency Preparedness.
