New Features Available on NN/LM Emergency Preparedness & Response Toolkit
NN/LM is pleased to announce new additions to the NN/LM Emergency Preparedness & Response Toolkit. If you haven’t yet visited the Toolkit, you can access it at http://nnlm.gov/ep/. The Toolkit features resources for service continuity planning, disaster plan templates, sample forms, and regularly updated news stories. It is an excellent starting place for your institution’s disaster planning process.
New features include:
- A new tutorial, which provides an overview of the toolkit and highlights several of the features and functions available at the site. Look for the “Tutorials” tab.
- New “Risk Assessment Maps and Charts” display the likelihood of hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, and more in different areas of the country. The section is available on the right-side navigation of the Toolkit.
- Sample “Mutual Aid Agreement” (MAA) added to the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) section of the Toolkit. The MAA is a “softer” version of the MOU which may be less intimidating to institutions uncertain of the legal issues/implications of an MOU.
Please take a moment to visit the NN/LM Emergency Preparedness & Response Toolkit and see the new enhancements. If you have any questions or concerns about the Toolkit, please contact the RML at email@example.com or 800-338-7657.
