To commemorate National Preparedness Month 2017, TargetSolutions has selected our Top 6 training courses to help organizations establish an emergency response plan. 

According to FEMA’s Citizen Preparedness Survey, less than one in three employed U.S. adults believe their workplace is proactive about emergency preparedness. As September is National Preparedness Month 2017, now is the time to develop an effective disaster response procedure to protect your organization.

Each week this month focuses on methods to build your emergency response plan:

Week 1 (September 1-9): Make a Plan for Yourself, Family and Friend

Week 2 (September 10-16): Plan to Help Your Neighbor and Community

Week 3 (September 17-23): Practice and Build Out Your Plans

Week 4 (September 24-30): Get Involved! Be a Part of Something Larger

To help organizations implement an emergency response plan, TargetSolutions has selected our Top 6 courses for National Preparedness Month 2017:

Building Evacuation and Emergencies provides building occupants with information about emergency response plans to ensure the safe, orderly and prompt evacuation of individuals.

Disaster Preparedness discusses how to plan for emergencies for all sectors of society – service providers, businesses, civic and volunteer groups, industry associations and neighborhood associations – and includes the responsibilities of law enforcement personnel in disaster preparedness and response.

Emergency Action Plan gives you a look at how to prepare an Emergency Action Plan for businesses and includes how to integrate required OSHA regulations into the plan.

Hazard Communication covers OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) National Preparedness Month 2017to ensure the communication of the dangers of the thousands of hazardous chemicals to workers and their employers. This includes a hazard communication program to get this information to their employees through labels on containers, SDSs, and training.

Emergency Response to Terrorism is an introductory guide for first responders who may be among the first to arrive at an incident of suspicious origin. It is intended to be a general introduction to the basic concepts for first-responder awareness at the scene of a potential terrorist incident.

NFPA 1021: Pre-Incident Planning recognizes that protecting a community from fires and other emergency incidents requires more than merely responding to the alarm. This course reviews the concept of pre-incident planning and discusses the primary elements of pre-incident planning, including gathering information (i.e., performing the property survey), recording that information, and using that information effectively.

While you can’t predict when disaster will strike, you can be ready for when it does. The goal of National Preparedness Month 2017 is to engage communities across the country to create emergency preparedness plans for the home, work, school, and places of worship. TargetSolutions’ comprehensive training catalog assists organizations in developing a disaster preparedness plan that reduces liability and potentially saves lives.
