Unplanned and unscheduled events happen all the time. But if the unplanned event is a tornado, an explosion, or workplace violence such as a shooting, the event can cause havoc to you, your company, your employees, and your community.

Why have an Emergency Management Plan? From weather to natural occurrences to mistakes, you must be prepared to handle an emergency event at your workplace. A well-done plan ensures you are prepared – it saves lives, property, money, and ultimately, your reputation as an employer and a viable company!
