Emergency preparedness deals with a vast amount of safety protocols relative to personal safety, property protection and security issues. To that end, there is a wide-range of regulatory standards and industry best practices that address emergency preparedness including those developed by OSHA, NFPA, ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and BOMA (Building Owners and Managers Association).
Whereas there are numerous issues at hand, and volumes of documentation to be considered, you should find comfort in the fact that there is a high degree of overlap and recurring themes that transcend the emergency preparedness arena. It should also interest you to know that, with respect to your budget, emergency planning can be very cost effective to implement.
