The RDPC is bringing MGT 416 Introduction to Continuity of Government Planning for Rural Jurisdictions to West Columbia, SC beginning on June 26, 2019, 8 a.m..
Introduction to Continuity of Government Planning for Rural Jurisdictions
This eight-hour course is designed to help government officials and emergency responders from rural communities in the development of plans that will ensure the continuity of essential government functions across a spectrum of emergencies. History demonstrates that disasters and emergencies often interrupt, degrade, or destroy local government’s ability to perform essential functions. This is especially true in rural communities where resources are typically limited under the best of circumstances. These jurisdictions must develop plans that address succession planning, redundant communications, and alternate site needs for their communities to face increasingly frequent threats. This tuition free course will expose participants to the benefits of developing continuity of government plans for rural communities with special focus on succession planning, delegation of authority, redundant communications, and alternate facilities.
All participants must register by June 12, 2019, 5 p.m. to ensure their spot in the course.
