Continuity Planning helps organizations fulfill a social responsibility to protect their patrons, community, and employees when things go awry.  We will focus on sustaining delivery of services essential to your clients, even in the worst of times.   How can your agency, non-profit, or tribal entity quickly resume functioning and deliver the services critical to your mission?   How would you respond to a major earthquake, a devastating computer virus, pandemic disease, widespread flooding, or the sudden departure of your executive director?  What can you do now to build a more resilient organization?  Emergency managers from state and local entities, non-profits, and the tribes will help us explore these issues.  Resources provided will allow participants to complete EMI certifications sought by many employers.


           There is no text to be purchased by students. 

 Some printed materials, including workbooks, will be provided to students on the first day of class.  In addition, a small amount of pre-reading will be available via Moodle at the end of January.
