Post-Incident Review and Debriefing

Post-Incident Review and Debriefing is a team project to be accomplished as soon as practical after the return to normal or near normal operations.  The debriefing and review is a means of better understanding the implications of what has happened.  During this process, the emergency event itself, the institution’s initial response, effectiveness of communications, effectiveness of the Incident Command System Team, Emergency Response Team and the Recovery Teams and any related concerns will be discussed and evaluated.  It is an opportunity to learn from experience and possibly avoid repeating mistakes.  One of the immediate outcomes of the review will be to update the emergency plan since it is a living document.  The Safety & Risk Manager will coordinate and schedule the Post-Briefing Review and Debriefing with the Executive Administrative Assistant to the President.
