Course Description

It often does not take more than minutes for an emergency to escalate. Actions taken within the initial minutes of an emergency can largely dictate the severity of consequences. Therefore, each company needs a plan of action to follow when emergencies strike in order to minimize damages.

This course covers the steps and phases of creating an emergency response plan.
