The Mobile Emergency Response Plan (MERP) allows you to take your emergency plans from the 3 ring binder in the manager’s office and put them in the hands of every employee in your company or organization. Imagine being able to make an update to your emergency response plan and instantly push it out to all employees and facilities with the touch of a button. MERP makes that possible.
MERP comes pre-populated with an All-Hazards plan based on Best Practices. The plans are OSHA complaint, 100% editable and can be customized to your business or company.
MERP is designed to be a web based tool for the basis of a company’s or organization’s response to unplanned incidents. MERP holds the strategy for immediate response to an emergency, while serving as the guideline for the actions to be taken by employees in the critical first moments of an incident.
"After responding to a recent bus accident there was no question by staff on what to do, we followed the emergency response plan within the MERP platform that our district purchased from Safeguard Risk Solutions. The plan took us from start to finish with what we needed for the safety and security of our students and the district."
Dean of Students, Grove Madison Schools - Groveport, Ohio
"I could not be more pleased with our district’s purchase of the MERP platform and with the customer service and support our district has received during and after the purchase from Safeguard Risk Solutions. No matter how many questions I have had, they always respond quickly and professionally with the answers I need."
Director of Secondary Education, Dublin City Schools - Dublin, Ohio
"Although we had recently revised our district’s emergency response program, we decided that the MERP platform was not only a good replacement plan, but in many ways was much better. One of the best aspects of MERP is that you can utilize it as both an electronic application that can be uploaded to portable devices, or as a hard copy printout for those unable, unwilling , to put it on their mobile devices. Support has been excellent. MERP support will quickly respond to any and all inquiries and will provide follow-up to ensure that all is going well. Our district is pleased with both the product and service support."

so, How can the MERP help your healthcare facility?
The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has just announced new requirements for national emergency preparedness, effective November 15th, 2016. After review, the DHHS determined that most healthcare facilities are not adequately prepared for the complexities that emerge with real life emergencies. This final rule will require all Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) providers to plan for a variety of disasters and modify their current emergency preparedness plans to comply with an updated list of requirements. The details of these new requirements establish standards for emergency preparedness based on proven best practices and documented results from real life emergencies such as 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and the 2009 influenza epidemic.
These requirements are designed to establish a comprehensive, consistent, flexible, and dynamic approach to standardizing emergency preparedness. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has identified four main elements essential to a comprehensive emergency preparedness framework. These include: Risk Assessment and Emergency Planning, Policies and Procedures, Communication Plan, and Staff Training and Testing. The following is a breakdown of the different components; understanding how these four areas impact emergency preparedness is imperative to developing a DHHS approved plan.
Risk Assessment and Emergency Planning
Types of emergencies to consider include:
- Equipment failure
- Power Failure
- Communication Disruption
- Destruction of part, or all, of the facility
- Disruption in supply of essentials
- Mass Casualties
Policies and Procedures
Staff Training and Testing
An effective training program must include initial training program of the newly developed emergency plan according to the “All-Hazards” risk assessment and must include all staff, new and old. To support this, annual trainings must be completed to complement the initial training and ensures maintaining staff knowledge of emergency planning, policies, and procedures. Additionally, facilities must also conduct regular drills and exercises to help identify gaps and areas for improvement.
