Emergency Readiness:

Applying the Ready Rating Program by the American Red Cross




45 Minutes

Live Webcast with the American Red Cross

Ninety-four percent of business owners believe that a disaster could seriously disrupt their businesses within the next two years, but more than one-third of these owners do not have a businesses continuity plan of any kind. Knowing that getting prepared isn't always top of mind, the Red Cross developed the free Ready Rating program to bring it to the forefront of conversation to help businesses, schools, and organizations become better prepared for disasters and other emergencies. Rather than just pushing out mind-numbing lists of preparedness recommendations, the Ready Rating program is an interactive, customized assessment that generates personalized "next steps" for facilities and emergency & life safety teams.

What You'll Learn:

  • Learn how to measure your current level of preparedness by creating a Ready Rating self-assessment
  • Discover best practices in improving employee emergency and safety training
  • Hear about developing an OSHA-compliant Emergency Action Plan and effective Continuity of Operations Plan
  • Find out the benefits of creating a FREE Ready Rating membership account
