Emergency Response Plan

The Office of Risk Management is charged with ensuring every District of Columbia agency with eight or more employees has an Emergency Response Plan (ERP), as outlined in 29 CFR 1910.38 of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration General Industry standards. ERPs include evacuation plans to ensure that District agencies have a plan of action to secure the safety of employees in the event of an emergency. The Risk Prevention and Safety (RPS) staff work with Agency Risk Management Representatives (ARMRs) on Emergency Evacuation Planning in cooperation with DC Fire and Emergency Services (DCFEMS), in order to proactively protect the health, economic, and social well-being of its workforce, citizens, and resources.
