Emergency management template and guide
In Australia, the reality of natural disasters such as flood, fire and even earthquakes can strike without warning. Your business is critical to your financial wellbeing and could also be a necessary service to your community, so naturally you want to protect what you can.
For example, a business may be affected by flood, with damage to information systems and most of its assets. Regardless of the damage, the impact of this disaster on business operations would be similar to that of a robbery and the same systems and assets were lost. Planning for the impact of an emergency rather than the emergency itself will give your business a greater chance of survival.
Emergency management planning can help you identify risks to your business, critical areas of your business and how to best protect them. It also covers continuity and recovery planning to help your business prepare for and survive any emergency situation.
A good emergency management plan protects your livelihood by preparing you for unexpected disruptions to your business. The business.gov.au emergency management & recovery plan template steps you through the process of creating a solid, well-structured plan tailored to your business.
