MGT 416-V Continuity of government Operations Planning for Rural Communities

Course Description

Virtual training for rural communities to aid government officials and emergency responders in the development of plans to ensure the continuity of essential government functions across a spectrum of emergencies. The course focuses on succession planning, the delegation of authority, redundant communications, and alternate facilities. This eight-hour course, delivered in two four-hour Zoom sessions, is designed to help government officials and emergency responders from rural communities in the development of plans that will ensure the continuity of essential government functions across a spectrum of emergencies. History demonstrates that disasters and emergencies often interrupt, degrade, or destroy the local government’s ability to perform essential functions. This is especially true in rural communities where resources are typically limited under the best of circumstances. These jurisdictions must develop plans that address succession planning, redundant communications, and alternate site needs for their communities to face increasingly frequent threats. This tuition-free course will expose participants to the benefits of developing continuity of government plans for rural communities with special focus on succession planning, the delegation of authority, redundant communications, and alternate facilities.
