Alarm, The Public Risk Management Association, has published a new business continuity management guidance document, which aims to provide clear help and guidance in this area to enable local authorities and other public sector front line responders to fulfil service and statutory obligations.

Alarm says that the document, entitled ‘A guide to business continuity management,’ is a result of listening to its members who require a sector specific guide that takes into account specific issues faced in the public sector and the requirements of the UK Civil Contingencies Act, which imposes statutory duties on organizations when it comes to resilience and business continuity. 

“The guide will provide members with the ability to develop a robust business continuity infrastructure that will enable resilience and help to carry on when facing an incident,” states Alarm.

Alarm members can obtain the business continuity guide free of charge.
