RECORDED WEBINAR

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) a public health emergency of international concern. COVID-19, along with other human biological incident threats create situations where local government leadership must operate and respond in a VUCCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Chaotic, and Ambiguous) environment.

This workshop will help organizations prepare for unexpected public health and emergency management situations and covers topics including:

• All-Hazards Emergency Planning

• Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP)

• Crisis Risk Communications

• Impacts on Information Technology

• Human Resource Law Challenges

• Community Acceptance and Buy-In

Bill Peterson, Former Regional DHS / FEMA Director, and John Teel, Former Local Health Department Director will provide critical information focused on Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP) concepts and potentially disruptive forces to the provision of city/county services should novel coronavirus or any other human biological epidemic/pandemic have a risk of high impact in US cities and communities.

ATTENDEE GUIDE

A companion guide to the webinar that includes the presentation slides, notes pages, Local Government Checklist for Pandemic Preparedness, and Pandemic Self-Check for Local Government Employees

PANDEMIC PLANNING: A Best Practices Manual for Local Governments E-Book

by: SGR, Bill Peterson & John Teel

(Updated with Current Information on Novel Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020 (COVID-19 or SARS-CoV-2)

SGR has produced Pandemic Planning: A Best Practices Manual for Local Governments. As we updated this manual from previous versions that SGR produced, we reflect on the extraordinary times we are living in and that these times have shown us that most local governments, businesses, schools, churches, and other entities are still not adequately prepared for a significant pandemic virus outbreak among their employees and constituent groups. Very few organizations have taken the effort to prepare for a pandemic virus outbreak in their community with a well-designed Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP), despite the increasing probability of direct impact.

This Best Practices Manual for Local Governments will help you:

  • Understand the coronavirus patterns and dynamics
  • Evaluate your own organization's readiness to deal with a significant virus outbreak
  • Provide you a step-by-step process for creating a meaningful COOP for your specific organization
  • This manual does not provide you all of the answers - only you can do that based on your own particular situation and circumstances - but it will help you ask all the right questions.
