Business Continuity Awareness Week 2019: May 13th - 17th

Business Continuity Management is the process of creating arrangements to deal with potential threats to the smooth running of an organisation/business. It identifies critical functions and services along with steps to take in the event of disruptions.

During business continuity week have a think about how resilient you are and what you could do to increase your resilience. Or why not use business continuity week to think about how you could act on it through planning, training and testing.

During the week the local authorities' Civil Contingencies team will be considering ways in which organisations and businesses can be more resilient and offering tips and advice on how to implement them. To get involved:

• Visit throughout the week for tips and advice

• Join the conversation on twitter @somersetprepare and use #BCAW2019

• Share our templates and guidance with your local businesses and organisations  

• Check out our YouTube channel for the Businesses Prepared playlist of useful videos to help you understand and get involved with business continuity

If you have any questions about Business Continuity or planning for emergencies in your area, get in touch and a member of the team will be glad to help. 

Best wishes, 

Somerset Local Authorities' Civil Contingencies Unit
