To help facilitate these planning discussions, Emergency Management & Safety Services has developed a Continuity Planning Workshop. This interactive workshop can be scheduled for a time and location convenient to the staff of the particular unit. The event will allow us to collect your unit’s continuity information in one sitting. Emergency Management & Safety Services will facilitate the workshop; we just need your help in scheduling the workshop and ensuring all appropriate stakeholders are in the room when they need to be there.
