Emergency Exercises

Plan-Exercise-Execute-Review

4Wardplanning, as a consultancy service, recognise the need for major event management plans and emergency management plans developed by organisations to be exercised to ensure that the processes and systems created are effective and robust . In addition the roles and responsibilities of key personnel in an organisation tasked with managing a major event or responding to an emergency can also be tested. Any shortfalls, gaps or deficiencies can then be identified and appropriate solutions developed and implemented.

A number of different types of exercises are available to test a wide spectrum of functions including workshop, table top and ‘live’ exercises. The objective, in addition to ensuring any plans are fit for purpose, is to strengthen the knowledge, confidence and experience of staff that will be required to manage a major event or to respond to an emergency or adverse incident.

The director of 4Wardplanning, Sean Ward, has extensive experience designing and running a wide range of exercises during his service with An Garda Siochana including live exercises at SEVESO chemical sites at Dublin Port and a number of exercises to test responses to a critical firearms or terrorist incident. All exercises are carried out strictly in accordance with the procedures and processes as laid out in the relevant guidance document of the Framework for Major Emergency Management in regard to emergency exercises.

Recent high impact terrorist attacks in Europe over the past few years also highlight the absolute necessity to ensure organisations can test their response through the medium of an effective exercise.

4Wardplanning can supply a comprehensive consultancy service for clients that includes identifying emergency plans or sections of plans relating to major events or to a specific organisation that require testing, design an appropriate exercise, manage the exercise with key personnel including an exercise director and support staff, identify any gaps or shortfalls and supply a consolidated report with appropriate recommendations.
