Critical Incident Survival System
Catastrophes, whether man-made or natural, are an unfortunate fact of life. Yet most families are unprepared to handle these events when they arise.
At Aston • Pearl we believe that our clients should be the first to know about a sophisticated, cutting-edge new system for planning ahead and surviving crises.
To provide an informed and rational means to prepare for emergencies, experts began researching in detail over a dozen cataclysmic disasters such as:
Halifax munitions ship explosion of 1918
Hiroshima / Nagasaki
September 11, 2001
Tokyo subway Sarin gas release
In analyzing these varied disasters, it was critical to determine the key characteristics common to survivors and non-survivors.
With this detailed knowledge-based profile amassed and analyzed, the Critical Incident Survival System (CISS) was created, combining disciplined learning with practical, customizable solutions for personal survival.
CISS identifies each family’s unique circumstances to provide a site-specific emergency action guide for each family member at each residence, workplace, aircraft and watercraft.
The CISS training curriculum teaches successful survival behaviors, provides hands-on training in critical skills and the use of the CISS backpack.
The pack contains an efficient assortment of tools for survival, including:
Tools to provide potable water;
Respiratory protection/radiation detection;
Antidotes and key medications;
Communication tools (please see #4 below).
CISS supports a 24/7 communication center providing:
Field communications from a secure operations center located in New England with a backup location in the mid-Atlantic states;
Supporting text, email, phone and personal GPS messaging (cell, landline and satellite);
A central clearinghouse for coordinated instruction and action.
Above all, informed planning and thoughtful preparation is the first step to surviving a catastrophe.
