Business Emergency  Protocols Template

Every business should develop and implement an emergency plan for protecting employees, visitors, contractors, and anyone who may be at your site. An emergency response plan  enables businesses to plan for incident response and should be incorporated into their overall business continuity program. It should be drafted with roles, responsibilities, relevant contact information, and resources available. The plan should include a process for assessing damage, protecting property, and minimizing damage and business disruptions.

The emergency protocols within this template are meant to be customized to best suit your business as a component of the emergency plan. Any disasters or threats not included in the document that you think your business could face should certainly be added. This document has resources that can help you develop procedures. You should add additional steps if needed to make these procedures fit your business.
