Why Study Emergency Preparedness?

In business, ensuring you are adequately prepared for every plausible scenario is essential.  The term ‘emergency preparedness’ refers to the steps a business takes to ensure its safety and continuity before, during and after a crisis of any kind.  Emergencies take on a variety of forms, ranging from outbreaks of disease to acts of violence to power outages to natural disasters.  Many of which are preventable, but there will always be emergencies that are inevitable.  In all instances, predicting and avoiding emergency situations is not always possible.  A good emergency preparedness strategy will always focus on prevention.  Where prevention is not an option, an emergency preparedness plan will cover things like evacuation of premises, delegation of responsibilities and contingency plans for keeping the business operational.  Emergency preparedness is essential in all areas of business - a discipline valued highly by employers and decisionmakers worldwide.

By the end of this course the learner will be able to:

  • Meaning of Facility Emergency Preparedness.
  • Emergency Planning is a continuous process.
  • The responsibilities of the facilities manager in emergency preparedness.
