On FEBRUARY 8TH, 2 – 4 PM EST get ready to STRESS-Test your Plans
Join Firestorm and key national partners for an expanded 120-minute, no-fee, virtual workplace violence crisis exercise. Test your plans, identify any gaps, and benchmark your response before a real crisis occurs. Don’t wait for violence; experience what needs to be done before, during, and after a workplace violence event.
Firestorm celebrates more than 10 years of service empowering people to manage risk and crises. In 2015, more than one thousand companies participated in live Firestorm interactive, virtual exercises. Firestorm has expanded the virtual exercise format to provide more time for each team to participate and make critical decisions. Join us:
Led by Jim Satterfield, Firestorm President and Chief Operating Officer, these exercises will be interactive, illustrating the various phases of an escalating violence incident: how to respond, what to communicate, and response to the unexpected and unknown.
Preparedness requires comprehensive planning and staff training to identify potential workplace violence issues, develop protocols to address situations, and respond to events that threaten the safety of everyone in your facility.
