Facilities Emergency Preparedness

facilities eventsDamage or major repairs to your facilities can seriously impact day-to-day operations.  Fire, gas leaks, chemical spills plus a host of weather related building issues must be accounted for in a comprehensive business continuity plan.  We all remember the many companies impacted by the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center towers.  Those companies not only had to mourn the losses of their employees and friends, but they had to figure out how to relocate and rebuild facilities given that their office space no longer existed.

MissionMode partners with business continuity and facilities managers across industries by providing the tools they need for facilities emergency preparedness to quickly and easily communicate critical information, share timely data and photos from impacted locations, and implement incident management procedures for speedy resolution of facilities-based incidents.

Primary Applications

When facilities damage happens, normal operations may be impacted.  MissionMode Situation Center Suite can help your team manage the wide variety of business impacts stemming from damage to your company’s facilities.  Whether you simply need to reach out to employees to ensure their safety or need to rebuild facilities and relocate displaced staff, MissionMode tools will help your team ensure facilities emergency preparedness for communication of important information, receive confirmation and feedback from a geographically dispersed employee and/or customer base and effectively manage operations through the business disruption.  Some of the primary applications include:

Staffing and Employee Safety – Every organization has an obligation to ensure the safety and security of their staff.  In the event of dangerous facilities situations, the goal is to quickly locate all employees, receive confirmation of their safety and supply information on impacted work schedules.

Scheduling – Severe facilities damage can wreak havoc on transportation schedules, store hours, staff availability and supply chain management.  Collaborative communication tools can help your team develop and execute response plans that will get things back on track.

Building Repairs – Damage at an individual location can have a major impact on operations.  MissionMode can help your facilities management team communicate with employees and implement recovery plans quickly and effectively to enable normal operations to carry on.

Evacuation/Relocation – At times, facilities damage can be so extreme that evacuation or temporary relocation of facilities is required.   MissionMode tools can facilitate the required coordination, planning and communications.
