The impetus for creating this plan is to provide peace of mind to the organization. As the pandemic and recent weather-related catastrophes have demonstrated, the questions surrounding crises are not will something happen, but when. While we hope for good health for all staff and Board members, hope is an insufficient plan. An Emergency Succession Plan will ensure order and preparedness in times of turmoil, confusion and high-stress. By putting forward a framework for a plan, the COOP Committee recognizes the impact and mitigating effects a comprehensive, sturdy plan will have on NDEO during times of need.
