NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) has recently published the 2019 edition of the NFPA 1600 “Standard on Continuity, Emergency, and Crisis Management.” The 8th edition of this important international standard is now available to help improve your organization’s resilience.

During NFPA 1600 – 2019 Edition: The Latest Update to an Important Organizational Resilience Tool – Don Schmidt, CEO of Preparedness, LLC and past chair of the NFPA committee, will discuss the standard, why and how you should review it, and identify an additional resource for continuous improvement of your program and plans.

In addition to the name change, the 2019 edition includes fresh and revised content of interest to all emergency management, business continuity, and crisis management professionals. A new chapter titled “Execution,” defines proper plan execution and discusses further integration of crisis management Expanded annexes provide a wealth of timely information.

The annexes, which are a treasure trove of valuable information, continue to expand. Annex J, “Social Media in Emergency Management” has been added. When an incident occurs, social media is alive before emergency, continuity, and crisis management responders are fully engaged. Therefore, integrating social media into all program activities—preparedness for a forecast event to communicating with stakeholders regarding continuity and recovery information after—is a must.

Other new annexes include Annex K Emergency Communications: Public Alerts and Warnings in Disaster Response and Annex L Emergency Management, Continuity, and Crisis Management Data Interoperability.

Register for NFPA 1600 – 2019 Edition: The Latest Update to an Important Organizational Resilience Tool today.
