Dedicated To Resilience
After the twin tragedies of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, America was forced to re-examine its assumptions about emergency preparedness. With the notable exception of fire safety procedures, the idea of preparedness had been largely relegated either to professional responders (military, law enforcement, EMT, etc.) or fringe groups associated with "survivalism" or "doomsday prepping."
As leaders in the private and public sectors watched in horror, the lack of planning, preparation and training across all strata of the general public became evident at the World Trade Center in 2001 and New Orleans in 2005. When World Trade Center occupants didn't evacuate because they had no idea what to do, and when it took FEMA five days to bring water to the evacuees huddled in the New Orleans Superdome, it became clear that something needed to change.
While FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security have accomplished massive change in the public sector, the private sector has lagged behind. That will soon be changing, however, as a variety of new Federal regulations have been passed, mandating that businesses take meaningful action to become more resilient to emergencies.
There is a tremendous amount of information on the government's official site, ready.gov, but the simple fact is that most businesses need help in accomplishing the steps required to plan, prepare and train for emergencies. Fury Security Consulting provides that help.
