Argo Navis IT Rolls Out Landmark Facilities Emergency Preparedness Training
For Release June 5, 2006
Morristown, NJ - Argo Navis IT has released a landmark course in comprehensive emergency preparedness for facilities and businesses which provide temporary public housing thus carrying significant risk for mass casualty during disasters. This course specifically covers the needs and risks shared by hotels, casinos, resorts, temporary public housing, emergency and homeless shelters.
Argo Navis IT CEO, Denise Bridgens, explained, “There are tremendous vulnerabilities and challenges all organizations which provide temporary public housing face in the midst of disasters. This course covers tactical emergency preparedness, crisis communications, the very different issues in team building in a public housing facility, leadership during a disaster and the actions needed to best protect and serve the public housed within the facility. Regardless of whether this is a resort property or a homeless shelter and all in between, there are a fair number of specific actions which need to learned to optimize public safety and organizational survivability during a crisis.”
This course is meeting the demand of a specific and vulnerable niche in the public housing, hospitality and entertainment sectors. These organizations share the responsibility for the safety and well being of a disproportionately large number of people compared to the number of management and non-management personnel who would be available to safeguard this population.
