OUR PHILOSOPHY OF EMERGENCY PLANNING
Coordinated Consulting Services (CCS) takes a collaborative, whole community approach to plan development. This means we value everyone’s involvement in community preparedness. When we use this multi-sectoral, multi-stakeholder method, plans are focused, relevant, and can easily be operationalized within your organization to meet community emergency preparedness and response needs. We use our subject matter experts and input from your team to create custom emergency plans for public health emergency, hospital and healthcare, emergency management, and other industry sectors. CCS will ensure your emergency plan meets industry regulations and standards and provides clear language and concepts resulting in a plan that promotes community resilience in resisting, responding to, and recovering from emergencies.
EMERGENCY PLANNING IS KEY COMPONENT OF PREPAREDNESS CYCLE
Having a solid, operational plan in place supports community resilience in resisting, responding to, and recovering from any emergency. Utilizing FEMA’s Comprehensive Preparedness Guide 101 Planning Fundamentals, the planning process is the foundation of the Preparedness Cycle. There are several elements to comprehensive planning including whole community-based information gathering; leadership buy-in; flexibility in applying various event intensities; documenting and operationalizing roles, responsibilities, and resources; and many more. The emergency planning process should be iterative with all other steps of the Preparedness Cycle informing the next revision of your plan. CCS is dedicated to all steps of the cycle and can help your organization develop the plan, train key staff and leadership, exercise, evaluate using after-action reports and improvement plans, and revise your plan: completing the Preparedness Cycle.
