On-site Emergency Operations Plan Assessment

The Emergency Operations Plan Assessment is a first-of-its-kind evaluation process designed to provide a comprehensive analysis of a facility's disaster preparedness programs and emergency contingencies. This detailed assessment is conducted by well-seasoned professionals who have extensive experience and certifications in fire protection, life-safety code enforcement, emergency medical services, and homeland security.

The assessment is a multi-disciplinary process that utilizes document review, inventory analysis, human resources assessment, and a physical plant survey to provide a comprehensive evaluation of a facility's state of readiness as well as compliance with recommended practices pertaining to disaster planning and recovery programs.

While most facilities focus on immediate and common threats like fire and severe weather, a great majority of operations fail to adequately prepare for other potential perils such as bioterrorism, hazardous material spill, pandemic threat, workplace violence, nuclear power accident, etc. and do not utilize a standard emergency management model to appropriately respond to these crisis and disaster situations. The Emergency Operations Plan Assessment will evaluate a facility's ability to respond to “All Hazards” and its utilization of nationally recognized programs like the Incident Command System (ICS) as promoted in the National Incident Management System (NIMS).

Full review and utilization of recommendations provided by the assessment can help a facility implement plans and programs that may potentially save lives, avert costly business interruption, avoid litigation, and maintain continuity of operations before, during, and after a crisis or disaster situation.

Pendulum, LLC has joined forces with Fire and Life-Safety, Inc, Sorenson, Wilder and Associates, and Advanced Catastrophe Technologies (ACT) to form the Emergency Management Alliance or “EM Alliance.”
