A disaster can be defined as an incident that interrupts the time and space of the normal processes of life, causing death, injury, or homelessness, direct material losses and/or negative economic influences. The interruption is beyond the coping capacity of the community.

Pomax helps organizations prepare for and manage disasters by assessing risk and impact, identifying moderating activities, and entrenching these procedures into an organization’s daily routine. In this manner the harsher effects of the situation can be reduced so that an emergency can be effectively managed. Mitigating measures are introduced through education and awareness, planning, training, and exercising.

Pomax helps organizations of all sizes through the stages of Emergency Preparedness including:

• Evaluating existing emergency preparedness structures
• Risk assessment
• Emergency planning
• Program development & training
• Exercises/testing
• Personal emergency preparedness
