Neighborhoods Partnership Network's (NPN) Capacity College, in conjunction with evacuteer.org, invite you to learn about developing a Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) as a nonprofit human services provider or small business as you prepare for the worst-case scenario. In this workshop, you will develop a COOP plan that includes procedures for:
* Alerting, notifying, activating and deploying employees
* Identifying essential functions and define how they can be performed during or directly following an emergency evacuation
* Identifying measures to protect essential facilities, equipment, records and other assets in the event of disruption
* Identifying methods of timely and orderly recovery and reconstitution
Nonprofits and businesses in New Orleans have a special responsibility to prepare and serve the community to the best of their ability after a disaster. Part of that responsibility is developing a COOP that will allow your agency to prepare for and resume service after a natural disaster. A COOP plan addresses emergencies from an all hazards approach. Get you COOP plan started at this valuable capacity building event.
