Have you ever addressed your various emergency concerns? It seems there are so many other priorities in the Club industry, there is never any time left over to develop a plan.
Before you can consider disaster planning and the recovery processes, you have to address the basics. What does you staff do when the fire alarm sounds? Do they react and go to their roll call area? Do they even know where their roll call area is?
Alan Achatz of Club Safety Solutions will share the many facets of emergency plans, including:
· Getting organized
· Major concerns: Weather, technological, man-made
· Emergency equipment
· Operational procedures: Communications, evacuation routes, equipment shut-offs
· Medical emergencies
Grab your safety team, your key staff members and invite them to participate. There will be ideas to enhance your plans for all types of clubs: city, golf and yacht.
Don’t have a plan? It’s time to start one.
