Why Nonprofits Need To Plan For Disaster Avoidance
It’s Vital That Nonprofits Plan For Disasters By Putting Contingency Plans In Place Ahead of Time
Regardless of where your nonprofit is located, what its mission is or how large your organization is, it’s vital that there is a contingency plan in place in case of emergency. Your organization’s information and communication must be protected and secure, as well as easily recovered in the case of a natural disaster, an every day disaster or any unplanned event that inhibits lines of communication.
What if there is an unplanned event such as no power, a natural disaster or even day to day issues? When disaster strikes, it’s crucial your organization can keep its doors and lines of communication open and during emergencies is often when nonprofits are the first to react. It can mean the difference between helping those in need, or shutting your organization out of any potential aid it can offer.
