Emergency Response Management in Critical Facilities
Start Time: 10/15/2018 10:00:00 AM
End Time: 10/15/2018 11:00:00 AM
Which of your organization's functions need to be restored first in the event of an emergency? Which facility systems support those critical areas? Any system deficiencies? What contingency plans are in place in the event of a catastrophe—and how does the facility program support them? An Emergency Response Management (ERM) Program is frequently lacking in a critical facility organization, and while there may be a company-wide business continuity plan, the typical data center, hospital and/or lab does not maintain an ERM program that protects the organization. This session outlines how to assess and set up a ERM program, including emergency operating procedures, staff training, and appropriate response levels to protect a critical facility's triple bottom line.

2. Discuss common causes of emergencies in critical facilities
