The Middlesex-London Health Unit and Emergency Management Ontario adhere to the components of emergency management as: Prevention, Mitigation, Preparedness, Response and Recovery. Corporate planning can follow these components for their planning model.
- Prevention: take all the necessary steps you can to prevent an emergency.
- Mitigation: take necessary steps available to reduce or eliminate the effects of an emergency.
- Preparedness: plan for emergencies to ensure effective response if or when one happens.
- Response: respond as planned for any given emergency.
- Recovery: take necessary steps to return to a state of normalcy.
Corporate Planning includes analyzing the most basic needs for the corporation to function, preparing a risk assessment, recording the corporation’s resources, writing a plan with corporate policy and practising the plan.
Risk Management answers to the corporation’s objectives and values, key risks and actions to be taken in the event of these risks. Risk Management offers many benefits including a concise list of risks that provide the opportunity to open discussion on the risks, change policy due to the list and increase accountability for the risks.1
