The Emergency Film Group (EFG) has released another training video in its excellent series. Facility Emergency Management is a 28-minute video focused on helping small and medium-sized organizations of all types create and implement emergency plans. As with many of EFG’s other videos, this one is accompanied by a CD containing slides, an instructor’s guide, quizzes, and additional reference materials.
The training video covers planning, emergency response structure, and operational coordination for emergency management teams and emergency operations centers. The video also assists planners in dealing effectively with first and follow-on responders.
In producing this video, EFG assembled a highly qualified team of emergency management specialists with many years of corporate, law enforcement, and government experience.
