Emergency Response Planning

Emergency Response Planning / Crisis Management

At SMI, we believe that failure to prepare equates to preparing to fail. As part of our core areas of expertise, SMI will review and re-write your organization’s existing Emergency Response Plan (ERP) and incorporate new components as may be needed and update the entire document to reflect current national standards. This up-dating procedure will address the new methodologies for developing preparedness and response capabilities as outlined in the newly revised National Response Plan (NRP), the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the National Preparedness Guidelines (NPG).

During a crisis is not the time to be handing out business cards.

Pablo Gonzalez, SMI's Director of Crisis Management
