Emergency Management Tip: Embrace the ebb and flow of emergency management planning

Emergency Management Alert, March 9, 2010

When it comes to Joint Commission emergency management strategies and your hazard vulnerability analysis, there is room for imperfections within the confines of preparedness.

This is a constantly fluid process for which assessment and re-assessment are the order of the day. The process should reflect:


  • Improvements made in your planning activities
  • Improvement opportunities
  • Any shifting variables that would impact the organization’s response capabilities

    By the way, when communicating to organizational leadership as a function of the annual evaluation of your hazard vulnerability analysis (HVA), you may want to prepare a summary of the HVA results in narrative form to focus attention on the key programmatic elements, vulnerabilities, etc.
