Ready to Respond Toolkit | Building Emergency Kit Worksheet
Interactive digital tool: Ready to Respond: Business Continuity Toolkit (formerly Disaster Staffing)
The Building Emergency Kit Worksheet includes a list of recommended equipment and supplies a building should have in case of an emergency. The worksheet should be customized and reviewed twice per year to make sure the kit is stocked and items are functioning properly.
Our Ready to Respond Tools for Resilience were developed to help affordable housing organizations make their buildings resilient, prepare their staff to handle emergencies and ensure their residents remain safe.
These tools will help you:
- Communicate and coordinate with residents and external stakeholders during a variety of emergencies
- Ensure housing infrastructure can sustain shocks from a variety of emergency events
- Maintain business continuity during an emergency event
- Support compliance with the 2015 Enterprise Green Communities Criteria and its new criterion: Design for Resilience
These strategies will help affordable housing organizations of all sizes manage shocks from major disasters and develop the resilience needed to adapt to future emergencies.
