Emergency Planning

Emergency Planning elearning module


The Civil Contingencies Act defines an emergency as an event or situation which threatens serious damage to human welfare in a place in the UK, the environment of a place in the UK, or war, or terrorism, which threatens serious damage to the security of the UK. It’s a classification that can take in everything from floods and gas leaks to a flu pandemic, but it’s clear that a well-organized business should have a broad plan in place should such situations occur. This module will help the learner to understand what emergency planning is, and how emergency plans are implemented. It will also look at how business continuity management helps to ensure that an organization’s core services are maintained during an emergency or incident.
