Continuity plans, often called continuity of operations plans, business continuity plans, continuity of government plans, or operational continuity succession plans, provide a road map for maintaining functionality during a disaster. Buildings may not be accessible, travel may not be reliable, manufacturing of goods may not occur, and employee attendance is reduced.
During an emergency incident, personnel and resources must be dedicated to responding to and controlling the incident. This response may include personnel and resources within an organization, or it may involve professional emergency responders. Meanwhile, even if the emergency event is one that affects entire communities, society must continue to function. Continuity planning is necessary to ensure that work organizations continue to operate during periods of disruption.
