Custom Preplanning Services

Getting started pre-planning is easy but can become overwhelming due to volume, lack of expert resources or complexity of the target hazard.  We can provide you expert consultants for fire protection engineering and emergency planning.  You can choose to accompany your Blazemark subscription with our experts conducting the preplanning of targets or we can conduct one-time or ongoing audit reviews of your plans.

“…providing the resources needed to ensure that there is a minimal interruption to their business should an emergency response occur.”

 

All work is performed by trained and experienced emergency response officers under the supervision of a Professional Engineer in Fire Protection Engineering (currently registered in PA, NJ, WY.) who has over 40 years of fire service experience at more than 11,000 incidents, and has been on teams involved in the design of millions of square feet of new industrial and commercial construction and numerous renovation projects. 

The preplanning process benefits the community as well as property/business owners by providing the resources needed to ensure that there is a minimal interruption to their business should an emergency response occur, while fostering a working partnership with the local first responders through planning and education.  Additionally, some property insurance companies offer a rate discount if a pre-plan has been developed. Pre-planning has a significant impact on your ISO rating.

Pricing for this service can be provided to you upon request.  Typically, this cost is covered by grant funding, the emergency service or the property owner.  Our staff would be willing to help you present to entities in your area which you wish to be involved in your preplanning goals. 

Tabletop / Exercise Training

Maybe you want to preplan or just completed it for a target hazard.  How will you educate your stakeholders and prepare them for possible scenarios and appropriate response?  Are you required to, prepared to, or looked upon as an expert to hold a tabletop or large scale exercise?

We have been involved in instructing ALL HAZARD preplanning to industry, government and responders throughout the world.  We have accomplished this with hands on and in classroom university settings, at major industry conferences and through regular contributions in written periodicals.   We not only serve on the NFPA 1620 Pre-Incident Planning Committee but our Principal Fire Protection Engineer is also the current Committee Chair. 

“Are you required to, prepared to or looked upon as an expert to hold a tabletop or large scale exercise?”

Allow our staff to be thorough and spend the time to identify the hazards that could present serious risks to responders, and provide the tools for you to understand what could go wrong when you arrive at the facility to handle an emergency.

Pricing for this service is based upon size, scope, and length (lecture, half-day, full-day or multi-day) requirements and can be provided to you upon request.  Typically, this cost is covered by the emergency service or the property owner.  Our staff would be willing to help you present to entities in your area which you wish to be involved in your preplanning goals.
