National Preparedness Month: Keeping Your Community Safe
The health crisis and public unrest in recent months has made it more clear than ever that communities must prepare for the unexpected. Health and safety emergencies can occur at any time, and offices and other workplaces are vulnerable to disruptions due to severe weather, property damage, and health crises. This National Preparedness Month, establishing readiness plans and/or making them easily accessible can help you protect your organization and keep your workforce informed and safe.
National Preparedness Month is a FEMA-sponsored initiative that encourages Americans to prepare themselves for disasters or emergencies like terrorist situations, severe weather, and safety risks such as gas leaks or drinking water contamination. In order to best respond to security threats and prevent damage, it is critical to be informed, prepared, and ready to take action. Use this toolkit to help equip your organization for disasters or emergencies and to keep your workforce safe.

TIPS TO PROTECT YOUR WORKPLACE WITH LIVESAFE
- Establish comprehensive safety protocols and policies (ex: evacuation procedures, locations of medical kits) to be followed in case of emergency, and educate your workforce about safety best practices. Upload this information in the “Resources” section of the LiveSafe Mobile Application so that it can be quickly accessed by employees during emergencies.
- Check in with your community regularly using Broadcast Messages and share pertinent, real-time information during health or safety crises. Reminder: broadcasts can be sent via the LiveSafe app, text message, or email, and can be targeted toward specific parts of your workplace using geofencing capabilities.
- Encourage employees to report health and safety threats using “Report Incidents.” These may include fall hazards, property damage, health concerns, or other matters.
- Update your LiveSafe Safety Map to include nearby resources — such as Fire Stations, Police Stations, and hospitals.
