Business Emergency Preparedness Planning

Disasters and local emergencies can happen at any time and are occurring at an alarming rate. In Southern California, ongoing threats from earthquakes, fires, floods and power interruptions are ever present. Emerging threats from cybersecurity breaches and changing climatic conditions present new emergency issues.

The San Diego Office of Emergency Services says that every business should have an emergency preparedness element as part of their strategic business plan, but few do.

The Professional Certificate in Business Emergency Preparedness Planning (BEPP) gives participants the tools, information and processes needed to develop and implement an emergency preparedness plan for their organization.
