Business Continuity Planning

Is your business prepared to continue in the event of an emergency or disaster? Do you have your business information in a location you can access if you can’t get back onsite? Do all of your employees know what your plan is or how to access that information? By having a business continuity plan in place, you will be able to answer these questions confidently. Business continuity planning is essential for the survival of a business during the time of a disaster just as business survival is essential for the survival of a community during and especially post disaster. The Town of Sidney recognizes that local businesses owners are very busy and will require assistance initiating business continuity planning; successful disaster mitigation and recovery planning is a collaborative effort.
