Emergency Management Steps

A company’s emergency management initiative must start with an inventory of risks and an assessment of the exposure to these risks. Infrastructure issues are seen as common causes of accidents and injuries.

At SCS Safety Health and Security Associates LLC, we assist your team in perfecting the key steps in your emergency management plans.


Mitigation is an ongoing effort to lessen the impact of disasters on properties and people. It includes avoiding construction in high-risk areas such as floodplains and engineering buildings to withstand wind, earthquakes, and more.


Being prepared for an emergency before it occurs is an effective emergency management plan. It allows your company to provide rapid emergency response.


The response is the action of responding to an emergency. Trained and equipped personnel will be required to deal with any emergency.


Recovery is the process of returning to normal. A part of the recovery step includes salvaging, resuming business processes, and repair plans.

Incident Management System for Emergency Response (IMS)

Incident Management Systems (IMS) provide a command center and operational staff with a standardized operational structure and common terminology. It applies to small-scale daily operational activities and major mobilizations.

IMS Training will also help employees build a useful and flexible incident management system. Your company will then have the flexibility needed to quickly activate and establish an organizational format around the functions that must be performed.

Emergency Response Execution Training

Once your company has a solid emergency plan, we can help train your employees to ensure a smooth and successful implementation. We help write documents, so your workers can have a detailed step-by-step guide in emergencies.

During training, we use walkthroughs, tabletop exercises, and functional stimulations to fully test your plans and your ability to execute and monitor them. This testing process will also uncover any flawed assumptions in the plan.

National Incident Management System (NIMS)

We provide a NIMS course to help you and your employees identify concepts and principles that answer how to manage emergencies regardless of the situation. It empowers workers with effective and integrated preparedness, planning, and response.

If the implementations are successful, they will provide a solid foundation to build, sustain, and deliver the capabilities needed for a resilient nation.

Supporting the National Preparedness System Through NIMS

NIMS empowers the components of the National Preparedness System, a requirement of the Presidential Policy Directive (PPD)-8. It will help you plan, organize, equip, and train in support of the National Preparedness Goal.
