Houston, TX (WiredPRNews.com) Perform Safe, LLC, announced today that it is the recipient of a 2010 IMAP Award in the Getting Compliance Documentation Under Control category for their ICS 300: Intermediate ICS for Expanding Incidents course. Perform Safe has seen great success with their ICS (Incident Command System) courses, which have been specifically designed to provide relevance to the private sector.
“Perform Safe is very proud of this accomplishment because it validates feedback provided by our course graduates,” said Judy Benavides, managing partner and vice president of course development for Perform Safe. “Our company was born out of the desire to provide the FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) ICS courses to the private sector in a clear, concise and relevant format. These courses not only meet the requirements from FEMA, but produce results that have exceeded our expectations.”
“Our graduates have proven to be instrumental in developing strong relationships with their local responders, initiating Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC) in their corporate neighborhoods, and exercising with their local responders,” said Pamala Curley, managing partner and vice president of marketing for Perform Safe. “These courses are not just making a difference in the classroom; they are making a difference in communities.”
Many businesses and industries, particularly those that fall in the CIKR – Critical Infrastructure or Key Resource category – have been aware that they needed ICS training; but they were unsure of how to actually apply it in the real world of their respective businesses. This is the training that prepares the private sector to manage an incident with the public sector at a moment’s notice – which was the original intent of ICS when it was developed almost forty years ago. It provides the skills and knowledge to allow them to meld into the ICS model in whatever capacity is needed. ICS training is relevant to all incidents or events within these organizations. Whether it is a fire, ammonia spill, terrorist incident, union strike or earthquake – the principles for emergency incident management are the same.
Perform Safe’s clients are not only meeting the FEMA requirements for ICS training, they are utilizing this training to apply it to OSHA’s PSM (Process Safety Management) program and EPA’s RMP (Risk Management Program). Both have Emergency Planning and Response elements that rely on the Incident Command System.
