Emergency Response Plans
All Communities today are encouraged to be proactive in their planning for emergencies and we can help you in collaborating to bring all those resources together into one plan, including training of key personnel on the plan, its policies and its procedures.
These projects will include 2 key activities:
1. Update the current Emergency Response Plan using the Saskatchewan Emergency Management Planning Guide, and other available resources. This often includes ‘modernizing’ of the existing plan to accurately reflect current risks to the community, as well as address the capacity of your community to fill essential roles in executing on your plan.
2. Provide training on the updated Emergency Response Plan to key persons identified in your Emergency Measures Organization. This is generally broken into two groups; the Emergency Management Group (elected officials) and the Operations Group (emergency site management and response personnel).
Methodology for Updating Emergency Response Plan
Morris Interactive will utilize the following methodologies in completing the key activities noted above:
1. Review of existing materials, such as the past Emergency Response Plan and related procedures.
2. Research and compilation of best practices in emergency management and response, including those of SEPA, Sask. Emergency Management, Fire Safety, Search and Rescue Organizations, and your local resources under your jurisdiction.
3. Conduct one meeting, or if needed individual interviews, with key personnel to update the personnel and resource lists for Emergency Preparedness and Response.
4. Prepare a draft Emergency Response Plan and forms/documents resource binder, to review with your Emergency Measures Organization.
5. Present the draft Emergency Response Plan, including all relevant policies and procedures, to the key personnel identified by your organization as part of the Control, Operations and Responders groups, in a training workshop format that will adhere to the elements of:
a. Risk Mitigation
b. Emergency Preparedness
c. Emergency Response
d. Recovery following an Emergency Event
Training on Updated Emergency Response Plan
Training will focus on:
i. Roles and Responsibilities
ii. Team Approach
iii. Mutual Aid and Municipal Type Agreements
1. Provide a final Emergency Response Plan, including Policies, Procedures and Contact List, together with forms and templates in a master (both electronically and in binder form to you to ratify in your particular jurisdiction).
2. Create Break out Kits for your Emergency Measures Organization and ensure quick reference in information.
