When natural disasters strike, prepare immediately to help protect your
facilities and equipment and reduce the potential for damage from
flooding and wind.
VFIS developed a program on Emergency Service Organization (ESO)
Disaster Planning & Business Continuity. This resource helps an ESO deal
with the impact that natural disasters can have on its organization.
Emergency responders spend an extensive amount of time preparing for
disasters that affect the communities they serve. Unfortunately, the
impact that a disaster may have on the local ESO is typically not
considered. In its most basic form, a disaster may include the loss of
facilities, personnel, apparatus, communications and data. An
instructional program, useful forms and related "tools" are all provided to
understand the process, as well as the details of good disaster planning
and business continuity.
