“We are honored to receive this prestigious award,” Gary L. Sigrist, Jr., Chief Executive Officer and President, Safeguard Risk Solutions. “Safeguard Risk Solutions helps organizations prepare for the worst case scenario by having a plan in place when you need it. How an organization protects its employees, its customers, and its assets—should an emergency occur—can make all the difference between just a critical event or a disaster.”

The MERP allows schools, businesses, and healthcare facilities to put emergency plans in the hands of every employee in an organization. The MERP is web based, but comes with a free App that puts Emergency Response Plans on tablets and smartphones. MERP includes an Emergency Communication System (two-way) that provides direct emergency notices to be sent instantly to all staff at the onset of an event, reducing both the severity and length of the event. The MERP comes prepopulated with an all-hazards plan based on best practices, which is editable and customizable. Updates to plans can be instantly pushed out to all employees and facilities with the touch of a button.

Designed to be the for the basis of a company’s or organization’s response to unplanned incidents, the MERP holds the strategy for an 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. Both the web-based platform and App allow documents to uploaded and accessed during an event, even if there is a power outage or lost internet connectivity.
