Hosted by FacilitiesNet

On Demand

30 minutes


Emergency Management (EM) is just not just for responding to earthquakes, fires or active shooters. EM is an important partner to facilities teams in helping them plan, create processes, and train for evacuations, lockdowns and any type of emergency. Facility teams who are tasked with creating and maintaining emergency plans can become confused or overwhelmed. How do you know if your disaster management plan works? Is it compliant with IFC requirements? Are there gaps in your current plan? This FastCast will provide answers to these questions plus we will cover key elements of an emergency plan and how to put a thorough plan in place.

During this webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • Discuss what plans are required for facilities
  • Review how to put an emergency plan in place
  • Learn what needs to be included in an emergency plan
  • Identify staff who should be involved with an emergency plan
