Disaster Planning

We’re pleased to provide you with a copy of Disaster Planning, Emergency Preparedness & Business Continuity. This document is a guideline that offers the points an organization needs to think about in order to prepare its own disaster recovery plan so that, should an interruption occur, it is able to resume operations.

We encourage you to take this document and use it as you wish: cut and paste those sections that are applicable, expand where needed. Assign a crew to complete the various sections, take a copy home...store it on your intranet...give copies to key personnel, the board chair, the secretary or another appropriate board member.

Disaster Planning, Emergency Preparedness & Business Continuity was drawn from a series of disaster planning and recovery seminars given for NPCC by the following individuals and/or reviewed by: American Red Cross of Greater New York; William Krouslis; Allen Breslow, Esq.; Joshua Peskay and Kim Snyder, Fund for the City of New York; Ken Liebman and Jack Stravidis, Frank Crystal & Company; John Burke, AIG; Bob Bender; Marcia Brown. Written by Daniel J. Myers.

This project was made possible with funding from Japan Relief Fund of The New York Community Trust.
