Hosted by Titan Security

Lunch will be served!
12 – 1 p.m.

Commercial properties are required by ordinance to have emergency plans for their facilities, yet merely meeting the bare-bones basic requirements is no longer enough in an increasingly competitive commercial-space market. The application of best practices from emergency management and disaster science is leading to systemic change within the field. Risk-based planning is leading to expanded safety and security products and services at extremely competitive price points. This seminar will benefit building professionals from an operational standpoint, in overall risk or liability management, and via improved pre-incident mitigation and post-incident recovery.

Emergency planning in large cities is a rapidly evolving service. The emerging best practice known as the all-hazards model takes into account a range of natural, manmade and hybrid threats. This presentation will examine the processes, content and applications of best-in-class emergency planning for commercial properties in greater Chicago.

By attending this seminar, attendees will learn about the:

  • Tangible benefits of thorough emergency planning
  • All-hazards planning concept and the expectation that new all-hazards plans meet the price points of “legacy” fire-specific plans
  • Phases of emergency management and contents of a holistic plan
  • Existing Chicago ordinances
