Contingency Planning Defined
Contingency planning can be defined as the actions taken to address the loss of a specific key process, personnel or resources, such as a critical piece of equipment or property while allowing for the continuity of key operations. It typically does not include every action required for full recovery of the organization or person, but does allow for a faster and more satisfactory recovery. Allowing the business to survive the disastrous happenstance. Risk identification is the process of identifying risks by considering business objectives, threats and vulnerabilities as the basis for further analysis. Through analysis we appropriately identify and categorize risks, estimate the probability of each risk and estimate the impact of each risk specific to your company or your lifestyle.
Appropriately responding to a crisis when it occurs requires careful preliminary planning so that procedure guides your response and not your emotions. ACRUX, LLC has affiliates to help you to prepare a response plan so that when the unexpected occurs, you, your team or your family completely understands what needs to happen and who is responsible for each task. Critical tasks such as command and control, life safety, employee and customer communication and/or family needs are planned in detail to eliminate the unexpected in times of disaster.
