Business continuity and emergency response

Last updated: 12th December 2018

Business Continuity Management is a process that helps a business, group or an individual care worker to manage the risks to the smooth running of their delivery of a service. Ensuring that the services they provide to others can continue in the event of a disruption, or at least be resumed as quickly as possible with the minimal of disruption to a service user or recipient. 

These risks could be from the environment such as severe weather preventing people getting to where they are needed, major incidents, floods. Or they might be risks from within an organisation such as loss of staff through sickness, failure of equipment, loss of premises or financial loss, or utilities failure. 

Thinking now about the risks and what you would do to eliminate, reduce and respond to them so you can maintain services, will make it easier if they should happen in the future. Information on the Fire & Rescue Service and general community safety advice.
