Traditional emergency plans can be cumbersome, with some reaching hundreds of pages in size and becoming almost useless in an actual emergency.
 
Worse still is the fact that many are not designed to handle a complex incident where there might be multiple hazards present, such as an active killer incident that is using firearms, a vehicle, and arson as weapons.
 
Even natural disasters such as an earthquake can involve multiple hazards (such as broken gas lines that can cause a fire or explosion, falling debris, and hazardous materials spills) that present challenges for traditional plans.
 
Attendees will learn how use of functional annexes that can make both planning for and response to complex incidents much quicker and easier.
By the end of this webinar, attendees will:
  •  Understand the concept of primary and secondary hazards
  •  Know the difference between incident type annexes and functional annexes in emergency plans 
  •  Be able to conduct a KISUS review of plan 
  •  Be able to identify a variety of complexities that can impact an incident and should be taken into consideration
