Planning and Preparedness

  • Identify what is “Important” to the organization

  • Identify the hazards/risks

    • For example DDS identified “medically fragile” for us, requesting that we find out if they have plans

  • Explore all legal ramifications

  • Identify partners and stakeholders aligned with their organizations – city, county, public, private and first responders

Before the incident
Before the Incident

Planning and Preparedness cont.

  • Identify who is responsible for the plans and their yearly review

  • Identify how your plans coordinate with those local jurisdictions or agencies your organization would interface with at the time of any emergency

Before the incident1
Before the Incident

Planning and Preparedness cont.

  • Identify who is ultimately in command of the incident – avoid the confusion in advance

  • Identifythe roles and responsibilities in those plans – what do they do? What support can they bring?

  • Develop a quick check list of things that need to be done – hard to remember everything in the middle of chaos

Before the incident2
Before the Incident

Planning and Preparedness cont.

  • Training and exercise of those plans for all employees in your organization

  • Everyone needs to know their roles and responsibilities

During an active incident
During an Active Incident

  • Set strategic goals for the organization during and after the incident and convey those goals to the operations branch responding to the incident

  • What key critical decisions need to be made?

  • Who is ultimately responsible for those decisions?

After the incident
After the Incident

  • The transition from response to recovery is key and the toughest

  • When does the planning for recovery start? – as soon as the incident has occurred

  • Who is responsible for the planning for recovery?

  • Identify someone to head up the recovery process

  • The transition must be coordinated with the operational response effort to ensure it is seamless
