Scheduling an Emergency Response Training
In order to schedule an emergency response training program, we would like Training Coordinators to follow the directions provided below. This will help to ensure that we can provide instructors and equipment on dates that are most preferred.
- All programs should be scheduled by contacting Brian Anderson. You can reach him on his cell phone at (517-281-0537). Alternately, you can contact him by email at email@example.com. If you cannot reach Brian, you can contact Scott Tobey at 517-899-4626.
- We require a minimum of 6 weeks notice in order to schedule a new program or to re-schedule a cancelled program. This will allow us time to arrange for equipment delivery and assignment of instructors. We may be able to schedule a program with less than 6 weeks notice in emergency situations, but we cannot guarantee it.
- If you need to cancel a program, you need to notify us at least 7 calendar days in advance. This will allow us time to notify instructors, who normally have to arrange for time off their regular jobs to teach for us. We will still bill for any non-refundable travel expenses. If we receive your cancellation with less than 7 days notice, we will have to bill for 50% of program costs and all non-refundable travel expenses. Your Company may require that you pay these expenses.
NOTE: Although we realize the difficulties involved, we would like to encourage the Training Coordinators to provide us with as much notice as possible when canceling a program.
- When you are scheduling a program, we need to know, as accurately as possible, the maximum number of participants who will be attending the program and the start and end times. For Confined Space Rescue and Rope Rescue, we can accommodate 16 participants for the two instructors we will be sending. If you need to put more than 16 people through the program, please contact Brian Anderson, so he can schedule an additional instructor. Your Company may require the plant to pay for this additional instructor.
- Each plant is responsible for ensuring that participants are medically qualified to attend the program. ERT members should have received the appropriate physical, and those who will be wearing self-contained breathing apparatus should have received a fit test.
Your cooperation in scheduling emergency response training programs will help us to deliver the training that you need when you need it. If you have any questions about these recommendations, please contact Scott Tobey at 517-899-4626. Thanks for your help!
