Why should I sign up?
We all know that the likelihood of emergencies happening is slight but the cost of being sufficiently prepared for handling them ourselves is often prohibitive. In reality, most small/medium sized organisations can’t afford to have people on call just in case – someone experienced to manage the operational aspects of an incident, someone to advise on PR, numerous incident handlers to make things happen and of course people to continue running the day to day business.
The process of registering with Pharos Safety’s 24/7 service helps to ensure you are ready for a major incident. And you’ll probably sleep sounder at night during your peak delivery periods knowing help is at hand if you need it!
* Please note that Pharos services do not extend to property related emergencies such as burst pipes etc, only for incidents or crises that may have a reputational impact on your organisation.
