'An emergency is an incident that becomes out of control threatening human safety, and damages or threatens to damage, facilities and resources essential to the running of an organisation.'
We introduce the concept of disaster/emergency planning, provide a framework for implementation and detail sources and models useful to those responsible for disaster/emergency planning and risk mitigation.
When writing a plan there are a number of elements to be considered:
|How should I manage disaster/emergency planning?||Management|
|How can I prevent such an event?||Prevention|
|How can I prepare for the worst?||Preparedness|
|What should I do if it happens?||Reaction|
|How should I manage the aftermath?||Recovery|
|Where can I find more information?||Bibliography and Links|
