Risk Solutions International (BrokersLink Business Continuity Management) was selected by the State of Nevada to develop a continuity of operations planning (COOP) platform for use by its governmental jurisdictions statewide. The COOP project brings RSI business continuity experts together with the Washoe County Emergency Management Office to collaborate on a web-based operational continuity planning tool that will be used in all Nevada counties, cities and tribes.
The platform will help synchronize existing plans, address the roles and responsibilities of the various Nevada jurisdictions, and will provide a toolset to support statewide collaboration in recovery planning. This project follows the completion of another engagement in Nevada in which RSI developed and launched a statewide emergency management plan website chosen as the state standard for all public, charter and private school districts and systems.
The State of Nevada is taking a serious approach to preparedness by enhancing the capacity to effectively recover from business function disruption in a short time frame across all its cities, counties, tribes and departments. This approach will provide all Nevada jurisdictions an opportunity to develop and manage detailed recovery plans. We are excited to be involved with the Governors Task Force on both this and the schools emergency management initiative.
