These plans are developed and maintained at the departmental level to ensure continued operations of essential functions following an emergency.
The Office of Emergency Preparedness and Fire Safety recruits, trains, and supports a cadre of Continuity Liaisons to support its mission. These individuals represent their departments throughout the process of developing and maintaining continuity of operations plans. Unlike Emergency Liaisons, Continuity Liaisons are appointed by department heads because of the sensitive decisions that must be made as part of the continuity planning process. Identification of essential functions, codifying the order of succession for departmental leadership, and centralizing information regarding vendors and critical systems are just a few of the responsibilities of Continuity Liaisons.
If you are interested in being a Continuity Liaison for your department, please speak with your supervisor before contacting the Office of Emergency Preparedness and Fire Safety.
