Being Ready: Emergency Plans and Business Continuity Household emergency plans, emergency operations plans, and business continuity plans are all useful tools for making sure your family, home, or business are ready in case of disaster or emergency. These plans are also critical because they lay the groundwork for recovery and can help speed the return to "normal". We will be discussing how to write personal / family emergency plans as well as business continuity plans, focusing on what should be included in an effective plan, how to implement the plan, and then how to review and update the plan.
