Emergency planning and training is the key to effective preparedness, response and recovery for emergency. This combination course will prepare wardens to carry out there role as initial emergency responders and keep other occupants of the facility (business) safe.
Combined, these courses allow wardens to learn about the significance of ©️ understanding the workplace emergency plan and proper use of emergency resources. It can be problematic if using emergency resources for the first time is during an emergency.
