Seminar Description:
In this seminar, you will focus on the process of developing or updating an internal Emergency Response Team (ERT) for your organization. You will learn how an ERT functions in a variety of organizational structures and to fulfill a variety of emergency planning needs for the circumstances required of most organizations. These circumstances include fires, weather emergencies, security breaches and other building events requiring evacuation and/or response; medical emergencies including rescues from confined spaces; and hazardous materials spills/releases. You will return to your organization with the ability to finalize a proposal for an internal ERT or determine how you can refresh your existing ERT and make it function more effectively.

Bring your organization in compliance with various regulations that require emergency response plans and activities
Recognize those situations in which your organization may require an emergency response and determine the appropriate level and type of ERT to address that need
Develop and implement an effective ERT including policy and procedure, budget, process for selection of team members, training and drilling
Implement an ongoing auditing process of the ERT activities
