Live Online Event - Ready To Respond: Understanding and Implementing Enterprise's Disaster Staffing Toolkit
Recorded live on September 17, 2015
The Ready to Respond: Disaster Staffing Toolkit guides affordable multifamily housing organizations in developing comprehensive disaster plans. The Toolkit is based on the Incident Command System (ICS), a planning framework used by Federal, state and local first-responder agencies to help structure command, control and coordination of disaster response. By modeling their plans on this standard, housing organizations draw on best practices and align their protocols and response timelines with key public agencies, while sharing a common language to describe preparedness efforts.
In utilizing the Toolkit, organizations will achieve the following goals:
- Building Protection: Minimize damage and ensure a quick return to service
- Resident Engagement: Support the safety, preparedness and recovery of residents
- Business Continuity: Maintain key business operations throughout a disaster
