Threats to your organization or home can be managed and predicted.

Managing emergencies begins with understanding the possibilities of what can happen and managing those possibilities. The leadership of the organization or your own home must take the time to analyze the threats and prioritize your resources to be ready. For example “Preppers” spend a lot of time focusing on high impact but low probability events. While it may be possible for civil unrest to occur, which is a high impact event, flooding takes out more homes and organizations than many other threats and many homes and organizations do not survive a flood event.

The point is organizations need to plan for high probability events, those events that may occur repeatedly and may have a high impact on the organization. Is your home or organization in or near a flood plain? Is your organization susceptible to an event that could ruin its reputation and thus never recover? Do you have a crisis communications plan that you and your team practices?

No matter what the threat is you and your team with the help of a professional can give you the advantage to survive most disasters and emergencies. Through role play, threat assessment and planning your organization can ready for almost everything.

This blog and Systems Emergency Preparedness Consultants are dedicated to educating business owners and employees on the need to manage emergencies everyday through effective mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery actions. Accidents can be reduced, eliminated and their effects can be lessened if a good strategy is adopted.
