Emergency Services Sector Continuity Planning Suite: Human Resources Worksheet   [open pdf - 816KB]

From the Introduction: "The following worksheet is derived from the 'Continuity Capability Evaluation for the Emergency Services Sector' (CCE) to assist Emergency Services Sector organizations in evaluating and filling gaps in their continuity capability. [...] Human resources are policies, plans, and procedures that address personnel needs during an emergency, such as guidance regarding pay, leave, work scheduling, benefits, telework, hiring, authorities, and flexibilities. Personnel are vital to the continuity capability of all organizations. Continuity coordinators at all organizations should be senior accountable officials responsible for working with the organization head to ensure the effectiveness and survivability of the organization's continuity capability. Continuity managers manage the day-to-day continuity programs. During an emergency, organizations will activate emergency response group (ERG) members to perform their assigned duties. The ERG is composed of individuals who are assigned responsibility to relocate to an alternate site, as required, to perform the organization's essential functions or other tasks related to continuity operations. Personnel stationed at the devolution site who are identified to conduct essential functions during activation of devolution plans are classified as the devolution emergency response group (DERG). Organizations should have means and processes in place for employees to contact their organization in a timely and routine manner during emergencies."
