Be Prepared: Developing a Business Continuity Plan for Housing Counselors

Location: Conference Room A (Second Floor)
Date: Fri, October 12
Time: 10:15 AM - 11:30 AM

Business Continuity provides for the continuation of critical services regardless of any type of event that may occur, natural or manmade. A business continuity plan (BCP) is critical to reduce risk, ensuring your staff’s safety, increase the likelihood of your agency maintaining or quickly restoring business operations, and ability to assist your community to regroup. Having one is often required by organization’s receiving federal funding. This workshop will help you to better understand how to develop a plan for your agency that will allow you to prepare for the unknown, move forward, respond quickly and be confident in your decisions. Our workshop will also provide you tools from PSEG’s Sesame Street: Here for Each Other and Let’s Get Ready Program so you can help households with children create an emergency preparedness plan.
