Case Study:
Ms. Smith is the newly hired Director of Security for ABC Corporation. Upon her arrival she learned that in addition to security, safety and fire prevention she would be responsible for contingency planning. With this in mind, she initiated a review of all company contingency plans. She was disappointed to learn the single plan that existed was more than 5 years old. Moreover, that plan only addressed emergency evacuation procedures in the event of a fire. Clearly this plan was not only out of date but failed to address contingencies other than fires.
Since ABC Corporation is engaged in manufacturing of consumer products with large factory and office spaces, Director Smith’s first consideration was to ensure company employees were properly protected. In the event of a crisis, people must be protected first. Moreover, Director Smith discovered that in spite of having an emergency evacuation plan in place, albeit it out of date, the factory was not properly equipped with an effective automatic sprinkler system to combat fire. She immediately conducted an assessment to determine the proper system for installation in both the factory areas and the general office areas.
In the effort to build an effective contingency plan for the company, Director Smith first grouped likely contingencies into three separate categories. Briefly describe those categories.
The first component of contingency planning Director Smith began to develop was an emergency response plan. What are the key essential elements of an effective emergency response plan?
When considering automatic sprinkler systems, what type of systems are available for use?
