Thank you for your detailed post, it provides insightful information for measuring the performance of emergency management.
I added here a few KPI examples to be used, and I highly encourage other users to contribute with their opinion.
Emergency Response Time
This is usually a %, example % of emergencies that have been responded to within 10 minutes, 15 minutes etc.
Personnel available to respond to emergencies
This is particularly an important KPI especially for over time analysis. If over a period of 5 years emergency response time has increased, it may be directly proportional with the decrease of personnel available to respond to emergencies.
Training may be another great KPI to take into consideration when measuring emergency preparedness.
We look forward to more posts from the community, with ideas of KPIs to measure emergency management and preparedness performance.
