Continuity of Operations (COOP)

Like many other states, New Hampshire is no stranger to Public Health Emergencies such as ice storms, tornadoes and severe flooding. PPH partners with town officials, health officers, emergency management directors, fire/rescue workers, police, schools and others to: limit illness and death, preserve continuity of government/business, minimize social disruption and minimize economic loss.


Emergency Preparedness Planning for Business


Businesses need to do emergency planning to ensure that they stay in business regardless of what may occur.

Most business leaders already do some emergency planning. They understand that a fire could damage or destroy their facilities or dangerous conditions could injure employees. That’s a good start. But all businesses, large or small, need to go beyond conventional risk management.


Continuity of operations, or COOP, planning helps business leaders protect their organizations against any kind of disaster. This approach involves consideration of ways to protect your employees, records and sources of supply, in addition to facilities.


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has developed a variety of publications to assist business leaders in emergency planning. That material is available at the following site: Ready Business.
