Emergency and Threat Level Response Procedures

Emergency Plans
Emergency Plans should contain clear assignment of responsibilities for preparing for an emergency and responding to the emergency. TranSystems works with clients to develop plans that appropriately align with the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) National Incident Management Systems (NIMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS). Invariably, first responders to incidents will be using the ICS and it is critical that those with the most information on the site (the owner) understand their role within the ICS and be ready to rapidly integrate into and support the ICS.

TranSystems staff is experienced in leading clients through an emergency planning process that is designed to be “all hazards” but also contains specific actions for likely incidents such as bomb threats, suspicious package, evacuation, fire, medical emergency, death on premises, severe weather, flooding, earthquake, civil disturbance/unrest (protests, riots), mass casualty, HazMat releases/Weapons of Mass Destruction, intruder/active shooter, utility outage, communications outage, and pandemic outbreak.

Threat level Response Plans
Similar to emergency planning, deciding how to respond to an increased threat level should not be done when faced with the increased threat; there should be a well thought out and practiced plan on what additional protection or preparedness measures will be implemented when the threat increases. TranSystems helps organizations prepare for changes in the local or organizational threat level may in response to intelligence of a specific threat (disgruntled employee, employee threatened with domestic violence, activist group actions, labor unrest, etc.) or to an industry or government declaration of a higher threat level. 

TranSystems consultants provide emergency and threat level response planning for a wide variety of clients, including local, state, and federal government facilities; transit agencies; freight rail organizations; intermodal facilities; airports and related facilities; manufacturing, distribution, and warehousing companies; water utilities; electrical power generation and distribution companies; oil and gas refining and distribution companies; telecommunications and data centers; ports and maritime organizations; higher education facilities; and non-profit and cultural organizations.
