Situational awareness is the ability to identify, process, and comprehend the critical information about an incident as it unfolds. More simply, it is knowing what is going on around you. Situational awareness in a critical situation requires continuous monitoring of relevant sources of information regarding actual incidents and developing hazards.
Early Alert’s Critical Decision Support Service (CDSS) provides information and guidance (to your decision makers) during times of imminent threat from natural, technological, and manmade accidents or disasters. The recommendations we supply are based on realistic assessment of the likelihood of hazards and vulnerabilities applicable to your unique organizational arrangement and geographic location, to help protect your personnel and critical infrastructures.
The COP is a single display of all relevant (operational) information, which our clients rely on to monitor, respond to, and manage any situation. When a credible threat occurs, our team promptly conducts a threat assessment to provide you with a COP and immediate protection recommendation(s). We communicate directly with your identified point of contact through phone, email or other applicable methods with alerts, updates and special bulletins. This action is supplemented by personal consultation with Early Alert’s staff of leading experts.
Besides the COP and recommendations, Early Alert can provide a number of e-products to suit your specific requirements. Backed by the best minds in the industry, Early Alert tailors all of its products to the needs of each customer, including the wide array of email and web based products — no “one size fits all” mentality here! In addition, Early Alert will provide a web page linked to your web site(s) containing specific recommended actions to safeguard against impending hazards.
