About

What Is Preplanning?

Preplanning is a process that gives all stakeholders to a property or special event the “inside information” allowing for a more efficient and timely response which will help save lives, property, money and manage risk.  Blazemark incorporates Standards from NFPA 1620 to gather information that includes physical and site considerations, occupant considerations, water supplies, fire protection systems, special hazards, emergency operations, and pre-incident plan testing and maintenance.

POTENTIAL TO REDUCE INSURANCE PREMIUMS

Many property insurers offer premium discounts for businesses that conduct proper pre-planning because a pre-planned operation is often viewed as a company that actively manages their risk, therefore they are viewed as a better risk by carriers.  When a variety of training exercises and tabletops are required, Blazemark pre-plans are simple to implement.

STAY COMPLIANT AND CONFIDENT

Blazemark helps keep you compliant with EHS and OSHA requirements by applying a state-of-the-art confined space documentation capability. Regulations also require effective emergency planning for all chemical processes— something Blazemark can be easily updated to do.

EMPOWER RESPONDERS TO WORK TOGETHER SEAMLESSLY

Sharing critical information is essential when various individuals are responding to an emergency. Blazemark’s multi-level security access (via a 24/7 high-availability server) delivers true “mutual aid” and response team interoperability. With just a simple web browser, entering data about rail crossings, landmarks, power lines, structures, shutoffs, ventilation, geographic features, water supplies, hazmats, and more is fast and painless.

“Still need to keep hard copies of what you’re doing? Blazemark also allows you to produce a printable copy (PDF) for offline use and/or storage or email during an incident.”

Process

 Preplanning Is A Complete Concept Based Upon:

  • Awareness of the Problem
  • Management Commitment
  • Education
  • PreventionpipProcess
  • Protection
  • Emergency Organization

Preplanning is often not taken seriously enough:

  • Completed hurriedly
  • Not communicated or consolidated
  • Discussed post-incident

By contrast, Blazemark takes a systematic approach:

  • Types of hazards (hazmat, building, etc.)
  • What is likely to happen
  • Off-site impact?
  • Life-safety hazards?
  • Environmental implications
  • Degree of probability incident will occur (history, mitigation, etc.)
  • Business continuity -salvage concerns ,ie, servers, records, etc.
