Emergency Preparedness

The foundation of an organization’s emergency preparedness is the safety and security of its people. They simply won’t come to work if they are unable to take care of their basic needs or if their family members are not safe. To make sure that your organization will be able to continue operating after a disaster, a critical first step is to ensure that your managers, staff, and volunteers have family disaster plans and emergency supply kits at home.  Then, prepare your business continuity plans and assess how you can assist your local community through VOAD.
