We are hearing from many of our clients that under current pandemic conditions, their sites are running with greatly reduced staff. Critical personnel only are on site, which may include: EHS; facilities/operations; and emergency response teams. However, even these key groups may be operational with a skeleton staff only to reduce potential for exposures. If an incident or emergency were to occur at the sites now, having pre plans developed and in place is the best defense to keeping the incident at the lowest manageable level.

“Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.”

That’s what General Dwight D. Eisenhower had to say about being prepared.

And at Blazemark, we couldn’t agree more.


When you are planning for an emergency, the most important thing to remember is this: the very definition of an “emergency” is that it is unexpected.

Blazemark adheres to the NFPA-1620 specifications to ensure your efforts are in compliance with good practices. Our own Greg Jakubowski is the Chair of the NFPA Committee.

Integrated Maps

Intuitive use of maps showing preplan with staging areas, water supplies, FDCs, structures. Virtually anything can be added to the map using precise GPS coordinates.

Powerfully Simple

Common structures can be easily managed via a “template” system to control typical information elements needed. Useful for common things like strip malls, garden apartments, etc.

No CAD Drawings!

Sure, you can do CAD if you like, but the majority of our FFs simply markup easily-available floorplans and site maps. Way easier to get started doing preplans! Besides, there’s a lot more to preplanning than just a floorplan.
