It’s Going to Happen
All communities will have some type of disaster. General consensus is natural disasters are increasing in frequency and severity.

The $4 Billion Weather Disasters of November 2013:
November 17 tornado outbreak in the U.S. ($
Flooding in Cambodia ($

Preparedness Saves Money
Hazard mitigation (FEMA): $1 spent = $4 in future benefits.Hazard preparedness: $1 spent = $15 in future benefits.Capital will flow more easily to communities that are prepared!
If a community is prepared a disaster, there are stupendous opportunity for community and economic development.
Where are the opportunities to leapfrog?
All Sectors are Impacted
Focus on Resilience
– government can’t do it all.
–citizens need to be involved, engaged and prepared (managed expectations).
– on community-level efforts to prepare, protect, respond, and recover.
– if done properly can speed up recovery process.
– lessen the time between response and recovery.

Continuity Planning 101
Definition of Business Continuity Planning:
“Identifies an organization's exposure to internal and external threats and synthesizes hard and soft assets to provide effective prevention and recovery for the organization, while maintaining competitive advantage and value system integrity.”
Have you considered financial, legal, regulatory penalties that could be imposed if you fail to provide a critical service which you are contracted to do?
Consider how each of your critical services could continue during a prolonged power loss. ...Now think about a loss of power lasting for 24 hours.
Which of your critical services would be jeopardized if your building was evacuated for a week with all access denied?
What services would be affected if access were denied for a whole month?
How many staff would be needed to continue to cover critical tasks and how would you accommodate them?
Examples of Business Continuity Risks
Do you have sufficient back-up for your data, both electronic and paper?
Do you have an alternative building or premises in which to work effectively? Is this sufficient? Can staff work from home?
Do you need access to any services not currently available at your temporary site?
Do you use any special software or stationery? How long can you manage without that specific equipment and how long would it take to replenish stocks?

National standards have recognized the personal resilience gap and have evolved to address a more dynamic model of planning that addresses needs before, during and most importantly after an event. In other words – they have evolved from readiness to resilience.
The Standard is Changing
Private Sector Responsibilities
must consider the
Acceptable Down Time
before the continued existence of a business is threatened, and must identify resources required to maintain or resume business activities at an acceptable level
Organizational Resilience depends on the resilience of the people you rely on.
