Abstract

The intent of this article is to highlight the complexities of emergency response planning for organizations that operate across National borders. Emphasis will be focused on foreign responder training and experience, cultural differences, foreign government policies and regulations, physical security of buildings and foreign response capability in terms of foreseeable risk. Knowing and understanding the emergency response environment prior to organizational set-up will be stressed in terms of how to leverage foreign response capabilities to your company's advantage while simultaneously developing initiatives to fill in response gaps, if needed.
