Information about business continuity – having a plan to deal with difficult situations.
The North Lincolnshire Council Emergency Planning team are part of the Humber Emergency Planning Service which provides the emergency planning (and business continuity) provision for the four Humber bank local authorities.
Business continuity is the ability to continue to function during a disruption. For example – still continuing your services when you can’t get into your main building or a large number of your staff are off sick.
The business continuity plan
A Business Continuity Plan (BCP) identifies all the critical things that are needed to keep your business going. It lists resources needed and contingency measures in place. It helps to prioritise activities during an incident.
