The FSMS Emergency Response Plan Template helps define the methods for effectively planning for, and acting during, emergencies that actually or potentially impact food safety and other company operations. The following information should be incorporated into the FS1200-2 EMERGENCY RESPONSE PLAN:
Emergency services contact information and protocols;
Emergency phone numbers, report forms, and emergency instructions;
Description of emergency warning devices and signals, such as sirens, air horns, and alarm lights;
Facility evacuation plans, assembly points, and rosters of employees assigned to each assembly point; and more,
During an emergency, the company should activate the FSMS Emergency Response Plan Template and assist in controlling the impact of the emergency on employees, visitors, and other employees and company property. Within two weeks of the emergency, the Emergency Management Directors should determine if the Emergency Response Plan was adequate or if it requires revision.
Any modification to the Plan should be tested at the earliest possible date to ensure its adequacy. The Emergency Management Directors will conduct quarterly drills to test various aspects of the FS1200-2 EMERGENCY RESPONSE PLAN. Test activity will include both scheduled and unannounced drills.
