Why Should You Attend
All the crisis plans your workplace is supposed to have require emergency communications with internal and external audiences. Yet most employers have not planned, equipped, trained, drilled or exercised these systems and procedures important to your response when an emergency strikes.
If you can’t communicate, you can’t respond. Every employer is required to have an emergency team made up of employees. So, for command and control, you need to organize that team; assign a chain of command; and then arm the team with communications devices/systems to make your emergency response successful.
Making this more complex and scarier: The major lethality of any emergency (active shooter, tornado, fire, medical) takes place in the first four minutes. The average response time for police and fire nationwide: 4-21 minutes. Thus, police and fire are not the first responders. They are the official responders. So, the first responders are your employees in a four-minute world. Your command, control and communications have to be carefully planned, equipped and trained to meet the and beat any threat.
