A Front-Line Focus on Emergency Preparedness Compliance: "Think Like an Incident Commander"
1.5 NAB CEUs
Stan Szpytek, Emergency Preparedness Consultant, Retired Deputy Fire Chief / Fire Marshal
This session will promote the importance of training all team members, from senior management to front line-staff, the importance of compliance with Emergency Management regulations and best practices. Understanding that adverse incidents will likely occur when executive management is not at the facility, all team members must be familiar with Emergency Preparedness compliance requirements as they will equate to proper response and effective incident management during times of crisis and disaster.

This session will focus on the importance of preparedness as well as the critical options known as "The Four Outs" that can be considered to survive "The Unthinkable."
