COOP Plan Development Workshop

Continuity of Operations Plans (COOP) are a necessary component of every organization’s readiness for emergencies and disasters that effect the organization’s ability to “stay in business” through and following an emergency or disaster; to continue serving their customer and meeting their customer’s needs. The COOP is the detailed oriented plan that documents the decision making, logistics and coordination that must occur to effectively be “back in business” at alternate locations.

The Healthcare Coalition’s Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) program is designed to support any Coalition member organization in the development or refinement of their COOP. Regardless of how mature your COOP is; this workshop and planning experience is for you. The COOP program is structured to provide you several planning tools and planning experiences.
