During our discussion for the Local Facilities Managers Connection (LFMC) Meeting in April of 2016, the topic of disaster preparedness was brought up as it relates to our organizations having business continuity plans as well as resources for our team members to prepare themselves and their families.
The University of Oregon Enterprise Risk Services has drafted a brochure that helps organizations as well as individuals to break their disaster preparedness plan into a three month calendar and shopping list. While many family emergency kits can be expansive and expensive, the University has taken the guess work out of the process by breaking it down into simple, executable steps.
Assemble everything you need for a robust emergency kit by purchasing
By following this plan, you can, "Prepare yourself and your family for emergencies in just 12 weeks." The tri fold pamphlet is broken down by color and by weeks into "Items to purchase or collect" and "Things to do."
Let us know if this resource was helpful to you and what additional measures your organization is taking to assist your team members to take care of their families while your organization maintains continuity in the event of a disaster.
