A pandemic flu event has hit your area. The number of people absent from work continues to increase. How does business continue? This Business Continuity Tabletop Exercise will allow you to simulate such an event and discover the strong and weak links in your business continuity plan. This exercise leads to the creation of stronger policies and better emergency response. It includes templates for you to customize for your organization.
* Enhance understanding of current Emergency Preparedness/Business Continuity plans
* Identify gaps in Preparedness and Response plans
* Foster collaboration and coordination opportunities among internal departments and outside agencies
* Clarify roles and responsibilities of faculty, staff, and students in a large scale public health emergency
These Emergency Preparedness: Business Continuity tabletop exercise resources were originally designed for a University of Washington School of Public Health emergency preparedness/business continuity drill held in March, 2009. Other universities, community colleges, health departments, and organizations are welcome to modify and use them in their own preparedness exercises.
The CD-ROM includes planning materials, PowerPoint slide set, handouts, day of event logistics, and evaluation templates and criteria.
