- Response & Relief
The COVID-19 pandemic and wildfires have shown the general public that nonprofits can adeptly continue many of our essential operations and meet community needs despite incredible disruption. Some people may think that nonprofits figured out how to magically respond to emergencies, but the truth is that the strongest nonprofits had well developed emergency and continuity of operations plans already in place.
This course will look at key planning elements that should be included
in your organization’s continuity planning such as
* Identifying essential services
* Planning for essential administrative functions
* Succession planning
* Organizational and program inter-dependencies
Sponsored by the Bay Area Training and Exercise Program (BATEP) for the UASI South Bay Hub (Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Benito counties) this session will give nonprofit and community-based organizations the tools needed to create emergency procedures and organization emergency plans and have staff be more personally prepared for on-going emergencies such as COVID-19 and future disasters.
