Continuity of Operations

Continuity of Operations (COOP) Planning


Also referred to as Business Continuity Planning, COOP Planning attempts to mitigate the lasting impact and interruption to business practice resulting from a catastrophic event or disaster, including flood, earthquake, and pandemic influenza. Developed in the 1980’s, COOP planning stems from a national security mission to ensure the survivability and sustainability of the United States against a potential catastrophic event that may have long-term effects.

While many Federal and State agencies are focused on developing plans for Continuity of Operations (COOP) and Continuity of Government (COG), Central District Health Department would like to encourage our local business partners to address their own COOP processes to ensure their ability to continue to provide goods and services to our communities in disaster situations. On the right are some suggested sources of information to aid in this process.
