The Office of Risk Management is charged with ensuring every District of Columbia government agency with eight or more employees establishes an Emergency Response Plan (ERP), in accordance with the 2015 District of Columbia Fire Code, and in compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration standard, 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1910.38, Emergency Action Plan.
ERPs ensure that District agencies develop emergency plans and provide employees with documented procedures for responding to emergency events.
Risk prevention and Safety (RPS) division staff collaborate with Agency Risk Management Representatives (ARMRs) and DC Fire and Emergency Services (DCFEMS) to develop emergency plans that proactively protect the District’s workforce, citizens, and resources.
All employees should be trained in responding to emergencies and regular fire drills should be performed in your agency. If you have any questions, please contact your agency ARMR.
