Business Continuity

Emergencies not only affect people and personal property but can have a devastating impact on businesses. We only have to look at the widespread devastation caused by the various instances of flooding or the impact of the Buncefield explosion to see how serious the implications can be. Even if your business is not directly affected by an incident, the loss of a key supplier or of customers can directly impact upon your business. Fortunately, there are things that can be done to prepare for such instances.

Local authorities, in accordance with the Civil Contingencies Act (2004), have a duty to promote good Business Continuity practice within the community. Hertfordshire Resilience is committed to helping the county’s businesses and voluntary organisations develop their own business continuity plans so that they will be able to thrive and provide services and employment to Hertfordshire citizens into the future.
