Emergency planning and response has come to the forefront of our Nations agenda. With the development of the Department of Homeland Security and its threat advisory system, action items have been bestowed upon those who have responsibilities in industry. Maintaining vigilance towards accident prevention is the key to avoiding disaster, however, at the core of every safety program, there is an emergency action plan; the what to do in the event that something happens. The most common and horrific construction accidents will be used as examples to show that the construction industry not only has a legal responsibility towards safety and health, but also a civic duty to maintain our Nation's READINESS!
