The team at Preparedex is more than a consultant, they are a partner to us in helping ensure our business is prepared to effectively respond to multiple types of crises. The simulations are very realistic and draw our teams into the exercise as if it were an actual event.
LaunchPAD is a very effective tool for our quarterly drills required by our regulator Transport Canada. The application is simple to use and depending on the scenario allows real time response to dynamic and changing situations as the drill unfolds, and in addition provides a hard copy record of our SGF officers actions
I am pleased to say we effectively partnered with PreparedEx, LLC to conduct a simulation exercise with our Incident Management Team which included scenario creation unique to our business, the dynamic delivery of said scenario, and a debriefing that focused on risk decision making in the face of a crisis.
