Risks, Threats and Solutions

Who’s At Risk?

You are - if you have property and personnel to protect. Taking fast, decisive, confident and informed action, in the proper sequence, can mean the difference between saving lives, protecting the property asset, limiting liability, maintaining a positive public image and exponential liability accompanied by a damaging public image.

Facilities Are At Risk

At risk facilities include properties where the public lives, works, shops, worships, seeks health care and education and enjoys recreation. Many of these properties and facilities fall under the 18 sector-specific Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources (CIKR’s) of the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP).

Professionals Are At Risk

Business professionals that have responsibility for the safety of the citizen public who congregate at their facilities are at risk. These include commercial, residential and governmental property owners and managers.

Proximity to any threat can cause a cascading chain reaction effect that could multiply your risk and vulnerability.

Solutions

Now it's possible to mitigate the risks that you, your bosses and your buildings face - with The Aegis First Responder System.

Solutions to the threat of any emergency situation begins with adherence to the four tenants of emergency management; mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. These concepts and protocols have been implemented by local, state and federal government agencies and adopted as best business practices by the private sector. They are uniform emergency response models that provide the foundation for emergency management and emergency planning.

An “all hazards” methodology approach provides the simplest and most effective strategy. Response and recovery are scaled to reflect the magnitude and scope of the emergency situation. It is important to have effective and professionally authored emergency planning documents such as a Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP), Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP), Emergency Operations Plan (EOP), Continuity of Government Plan (COG), Business Continuity Plan (BCP) or other appropriate plans of choice, depending on the organizational entity that is the perspective focus of the emergency situation.

Emergency management has traditionally been associated with a large-scale natural disaster or terrorist event. More attention should be given to the less dramatic, everyday incident that if not handled properly could easily escalate into a more serious situation. Preparing for and handling the everyday emergency situation with professional uniformity will instill confidence in all individuals involved, when an incident of a larger scale occurs.
