Emergency Response Planning

During the preparedness phase, preparation of the emergency response plan is the key step in the process, followed by training of emergency responders. Our experts provide consultation for emergency response plan development that includes emergency response team organization and training, pre-incident planning, developing programmatic and emergency action procedures, program evaluation, and capabilities assessments. JENSEN HUGHES staff include not only experienced engineers, but former facility emergency managers, fire department personnel, and emergency responders skilled in the development of emergency response plans. We work with municipal and industrial operations groups and emergency response teams and municipal fire departments to perform and document pre-incident planning.

Once the emergency response plan is finalized, training is an important aspect of making sure facility personnel can respond to events. We can facilitate table-top training exercises and mock events to enhance the training. On-line coursework can also readily be provided via JENSEN HUGHES Academy.
