The purpose of evacuations is to save and protect the lives of people exposed to actual or imminent danger through their timely and rapid movement to safer locations and places of shelter.
With a recent rise in civil unrest across the globe, there are several issues that employers need to consider for protecting their employees.
Location is a primary factor in determining who is at risk in an emergency; being able to receive and send information is critical in a wide variety of events. One of the most powerful tools in modern incident management is location-based notifications.
Clear, consistent, and timely communication is crucial in managing disaster response efforts and emergencies. Without proper communication, misinformation and miscommunication can flourish and result in injury or fatalities.
Emergency management, also referred to as disaster management, means preparing for potential incidents and responding to them as quickly, strategically and effectively as possible.
