During and after an emergency, your team needs to know how to respond.

The first several steps after an emergency should be focused on keeping employees safe and reducing damage to the facility.

Please note this list is not comprehensive of all of the steps you may need to take to respond to emergencies, but each question can and should be answered as part of your plan.
