Emergency Preparedness

Environmental & Risk Management

Emergency Preparedness

Every year, natural and man-made disasters cause tremendous dislocation and financial loss to organizations. ARCHIBUS Emergency Preparedness allows you to plan for potentially disastrous situations and effectively respond and quickly recover in the event of an actual disaster. It helps provide rapid access to critical facility, infrastructure and occupant information to ensure life safety procedures are followed, property is protected, and disruption to normal operations is minimized. ARCHIBUS Emergency Preparedness can serve as your primary tool for maintaining and providing accurate information to those who need it most in the event of a disaster.

Establish Proactive Readiness

Developing an emergency preparedness system is vital to ensuring the protection of life and minimizing damage during a disaster. Take stock today of the data you currently track to determine its value during a crisis situation. For example, fire, police, and other emergency “first responders” will need information about your facilities to help them perform their duties.

Ready to Make Critical Decisions

The ARCHIBUS Emergency Preparedness application allows you to prepare your facility and your staff to respond to and manage all types of emergencies, from a non-life threatening flood in your data center, to a potentially more serious event such as a chemical spill in a biotechnology lab. In the event that disaster strikes, first priorities include ensuring life safety, protecting property, limiting disruption to critical operations, and reducing financial losses. ARCHIBUS Emergency Preparedness can help ensure that you have the information you need at your fingertips, and the ability to communicate this information during a workplace emergency.

Assess Conditions

Condition assessments will determine the extent of the damage as a result of the crisis event. Using the application you can apply a status or condition to any person, place or asset tracked within the database.

Resume Normal Operations Quickly

Begin preparing the affected facilities to resume operations. Comparisons of “before and after” will ensure that the organization is properly outfitted with its required systems and equipment.

Assist in Financial Recovery

Plan for long-term recovery (including capital spending) for new facility and infrastructure requirements.
