Description:This eight hour management/planning course is designed to help officials and emergency responders from rural communities in the development of continuity plans that will ensure the continuity of essential government functions across a spectrum of emergencies.
History demonstrates that disasters and emergencies often interrupt, degrade, or destroy local government’s ability to perform essential functions. This is especially true in rural communities where resources are typically limited under the best of circumstances. These jurisdictions must develop plans that address succession planning, redundant communications, and alternate site needs for their communities to face increasingly frequent threats.
