   Rich Woldt - CPP, CFE RMLC Owner & CEO... 

To help navigate this page ..... I've attempted to segment continuing education links into five areas: Law Enforcement & Private Detectives, Corporate Risk Managers and Private Security,  Homeland Security, Emergency Government Fire Fighters and First Responders such as EMTs, and HAZMAT strike teams. 

The left panel... offers an introduction to the risk area along with some research tips.

The center panel... contains research links and tips on locating additional links used by our faculty and faculty mentors.

The right panel... features highly respected Risk Managers from around the world.

 If this is your first... introduction to Risk Management, I suggest you first read my white papers on International RM principles and practices, the Incident Command System, and "The RMLC Pyramid Road to Recovery" which applies Maslow's " Hierarchy of Needs to contingency planning and recovery management.  

A word of caution!  No matter what your RM project, I strongly recommend you look first in the education and training departments of your industry trade association.

From a Risk Management standpoint... You're going to be on thin ice if you're called to defend your actions or lack of action and you haven't at a minimum, belonged to and taken an active role in your industry's trade association. My best advice might be to get out your check book and hope for the best.

To my many friends and RM mentors around the world...

 September 2005 marked my 42nd year of pounding the podium to motivate and spread Risk Management wisdom around the world. You have all richly blessed me with a career that's taken me to most cities in the US and countries in the free world. I've been blessed to have worked with so many good friends and  RM professionals. You've all shared your time and experience and in the process you've taught me much about life in the real world. I've learned; "There are no silver bullets" and it will take all of us working together to ensure a safe and secure future for our loved ones.

Now, thanks to the internet, we'll can keep in touch, continue to share, and move out with courage to prepare, protect, and defend your homeland.     Rich Woldt

Risk Management is a three (3) step process. First you must "Identify" the risk, than "Measure" it's probability of occurring in terms of frequency and severity, and than properly "Control" the risk.  Following are some recommended web sites to help you Identify natural disaster risks such as:

Controlling risks is a five (5) step process. Start by trying to "Avoid" the risk, than "Reduce" the likely-hood that it will occur, than "Spread" the risk, and determine how much you can "Assume." Finally, "Transfer" the rest of the risk to someone else through insurance and bond contracts or some other legal transfer tool such as a "hold-harmless" agreement.

Law Enforcement & Private Detectives...
To conduct an assessment of your local risks, first use our R&D Library and than do a "Google" search on the risk and city in which you're doing your study. For example, I have a home in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin so when I type in... burglary sturgeon bay, I get (Click Here).  When developing your case for law enforcement or the District Attorney, I suggest you present your facts to include a history of similar crimes in the area. This also works when asking for more money for your security budget.  Rich Woldt
