Emergency Response Planning outlines the essential roles of corporate and municipal managers and demonstrates the importance of their relationships with federal, state, and local government agencies as well as public and private community sectors. Author Paul Erickson, one of the leading experts in the field, focuses on proactively planning for emergencies, particularly in the recognition and advance coordination of response to incidents instead of simply implementing emergency measures. The book is broken out into three sections. Section 1 outlines the overall scope of comprehensive emergency planning and discusses in detail the major elements that must be addressed in an Emergency Response Plan. Section 2 examines the types of hazards and risks faced by emergency response personnel, as well as the public, in typical emergencies, and provides specific recommendations regarding the immediate and long-term health and safety of emergency response personnel. Section 3 discusses a range of issues that must be given special attention in the development and implementation of any emergency response plan including: hazard and risk reduction, decontamination, data and information management, monitoring strategies and devices, terrorism, and the training of emergency response personnel. * Helps you to develop and implement an Emergency Response Plan * Provides specific recommendations regarding the immediate and long-term health and safety of emergency response personnel * End of Chapter summaries and questions provide concise information on learning objectives and a review of important concepts... these hazards a–i Move large and heavy objects to lower shelves or the floor; hang heavy items away from where people work a–i Secure shelves, filing cabinets, tall furniture, desktop equipment, computers, printers, copiers and light fixturesanbsp;...
