One of the most important elements of disasters and emergencies is time. After distressing and devastating events we tend to lament we needed more time. Some emergencies give off warning signs in advance allowing us to respond effectively like weather events. However, if we are not alert to the threats we face the element of time can work against us. Once you complete your threat assessment you can improve your response time to most negative events. Being prepared allows you to eliminate or limit time as a negative factor.
Be aware of impending weather events so you don’t get trapped in flash floods. Inspect chemical storage facilities so you can prevent leaks and spills. Upgrade security features so you can utilize escape or protective action plans. Make sure time is on your side and it does not work against you, your employees or clients.
