Alliance for Business Continuity & Disaster Preparedness

Every Business Should Have a Plan...
Plan to Stay in Business!

Statistics have shown that the majority of businesses that don't plan are not in business a few years following a major emergency or disaster. We're here to help--prepare today!

Our Vision - To ensure our community is better prepared to deal with any major disturbance through cooperation between the public, private and non-profit sectors.

Our Mission - Provide a greater level of preparedness in the business community by addressing risk identification, mitigation and plan development, which encompasses response to and recovery from major emergencies and disasters.

Our Purpose - Provide education, share resources, facilitate communication amongst the business community and actively participate in the Spokane County Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD).

If you would like help developing a Business Continuity Plan, or would like to be added to our e-mail list or are interested in becoming a member of the Business Continuity Steering Committee, please contact John Ames: [email protected] or (509) 220-6033.
