INTRODUCTION AND PURPOSE
All organizations are susceptible to disasters of all types, which can interrupt
their business, or in the worst cases, shut them down permanently. These
disasters may be grouped into three categories:
1. Natural Disasters - Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Winter Storms, etc.
2. Man-made Disasters – Fires, Bomb, Biological or Chemical,
Accidents
3. Threats, Terrorist Attacks, Angry / Dangeous Clients or
Employees
4. Political Disasters, Strikes, Riots, Civil Disturbances, etc.
Contingency planning is the identification, prior to a disaster, of all critical
procedures and resources necessary for the organizations survival. The
purpose of such a program is to anticipate, and plan for these emergency
situations before they arise, thus lessening their effects. A properly organized
plan will ultimately take into consideration the safety of clients, students and
employees first, and will also minimize the business interruption, which usually
succeeds a disaster.
