Important Points When Coordinating With Fire, Rescue, And Medical Services In Emergency:
Although most of us quickly move away from the hazardous environments created during emergency situations, a group of dedicated and well-trained professional emergency responders and medical service personnel are tasked with containing and mitigating these incidents, rescuing individuals at-risk, and providing medical assistance to the injured.
Unless the company is a large employer handling hazardous materials and processes or has employees regularly working in hazardous situations, the company will probably choose to rely on local public resources to provide these specialized services.
If external departments or agencies, such as the local fire and police departments, medical clinics or hospitals, and ambulance services, are used, make sure they are prepared to respond as outlined in the EAP.
Make sure they are familiar with the building and any dangerous locations within the building.
