Even as a planner this is kind of bizarre to me, to say nothing of making my work seem irrelevant.
Our emergency management agency is developing a Continuity of Government study/plan for all offices and functions. It starts with a survey asking what are your department's essential functions, key personnel, vital records systems equipment -- in essence what do you need to help pitch in in case of natural or man made disaster. I'm thinking maybe I can help set up tents or haul water. Planning and Zoning can wait.
These plans must be in preparation all over the country. Anyone care to weigh in on what your office does that might be immediately essential in case the worst happens?
