Course Overview

Natural and man-made disasters – no matter where you live – can strike at any time, so it’s important to have a planned response when you’re at work, on vacation or on the road.

The Emergency Preparedness Workshop will give you the tools you need to build your own Emergency Response Plan. We will work through case studies and other activities to highlight the important elements of a response plan as well as ways to implement the plan in your company.

The course will cover how to perform a Business Impact Assessment and how to build recovery plans for various emergency situations.
