Description

This eight hour management/planning course is designed to help officials and emergency responders from rural communities in the development of continuity plans that will ensure the continuity of essential government functions across a spectrum of emergencies.

History demonstrates that disasters and emergencies often interrupt, degrade, or destroy local government's ability to perform essential functions. This is especially true in rural communities where resources are typically limited under the best of circumstances. These jurisdictions must develop plans that address succession planning, redundant communications, and alternate site needs for their communities to face increasingly frequent threats.

In this course of four modules, participants will:
-Identify the concepts of NIMS, the Emergency Management cycle, EMAP, and PS-Prep and recognize the applicability of this course to the functions of their organization.
-Develop and implement a viable succession plan with delegations of authority for a rural jurisdiction.
-Construct a tiered, continuity communication program consisting of the appropriate supporting systems for a local jurisdiction.
-Identify and establish an all-hazards alternate facility for their local jurisdiction.
-Construct and initiate continuity response and recovery plans for their jurisdictions.
-Upon completion of this instructor-led course, participants will have the basic tools to develop continuity of government plans for rural communities with special focus on succession planning, delegation of authority, redundant communications, and alternate facilities.

*Participants are required to use their own computer, tablet, or smartphone during the course. No group settings.
