Emergency Planning and Preparedness for Commercial Properties

From fire and floods to natural disasters and workplace violence, disaster can strike a business at any time. If an emergency does happen, is your organization prepared? Do supervisors, senior team members and staff know what to do? Who to call? More importantly, does your company have a written emergency plan in place?

At Wincon, we take a holistic approach to emergency preparedness. Our consultants analyze and review potential risks to your property, people, and assets, then devise a plan that will advise your people how to react in the event of a disaster or emergency.

Comprehensive emergency response planning and training

Why Wincon Security?

Preparing for an emergency is critical to the safety and security of your property. But few commercial property owners are ready to respond to these events, and in our experience, fewer than 10% have a well-defined emergency preparedness and disaster response plan (EPDRP) in place.

From the latest technology to the site-specific training of our security guards, we conduct a thorough review of your operations to protect critical infrastructure, while mitigating the risk of litigation or penalties due to any perceived planning negligence.

Our emergency response training includes:

  • Asset identification and valuation
  • Threat assessment
  • Vulnerability & risk assessments
  • Legislative and insurance compliance assessment
  • On-site emergency response and planning training
  • Development of post-incident stabilization plans
  • Emergency communication strategy development

How we deliver emergency response planning and training services

We realize every property is different, so the first step we take is to develop a plan that is tailored to the specific needs of your organization by our emergency preparedness consultants. If your building is in a known flood plain or tornado-prone area, your plan will reflect those potential risks. The activities conducted on your premises as well as how many tenants work or live on-site will also be addressed in your custom emergency response plan.

At Wincon Security, we follow six guiding principles to design a robust and effective emergency response plan:

  • Assess all potential risks to the business
  • Ensure full legislative and insurance compliance
  • Consult with appropriate first responders
  • Train all security staff on systems and procedures
  • Develop a plan to stabilize any emergency situation
  • Communicate the plan to staff and partners
  • Practice and implement the plan with your team

An emergency action plan you can count on

While it is critical to have an emergency response plan in place, it’s even more important that the plan is implemented correctly. This means communicating the details of the plan to staff and conducting drills so that in the case of an emergency the action plan is executed properly. Our emergency planning process helps organizations properly deploy and maintain an emergency action plan to avoid any unnecessary loss of life or damage to property in the event of an emergency, as well as to help mitigate legal and financial losses.

Frequently asked emergency planning and preparedness questions

What is emergency preparedness?

Emergency preparedness refers to measures organizations take to prepare for and reduce the effects of disasters. This involves predicting, preventing, and mitigating the impact these events have on their people, property and assets and responding to their consequences.

What are the five steps of emergency planning?

There is a standard five-step framework to help minimize risk and respond effectively to a crisis when dealing with emergency preparedness.

The five steps of emergency planning are:

  1. Identifying hazards and analyzing risks
  2. Prevention and mitigation
  3. Preparedness and response
  4. Recovery and continuity
  5. Evaluation and continuous improvement

What is the importance of an emergency plan?

An emergency planning process is critically important for organizations because it promotes safety awareness and demonstrates the organization’s commitment to the well-being of its people and property. Not having an emergency plan in place can lead to severe losses such as casualties and financial collapse of the organization. Since emergencies are almost guaranteed to occur, a defined emergency plan is necessary.
