Access to Facilities Sooner
If roads or building access are restricted, who do you call?
NPP REENTRY PROGRAM
Even the best business continuity plans cannot provide for your ability to physically move personnel and assets outside the walls of your facility during an emergency. In a post-disaster environment, there is no guarantee of personnel reentry to facilities or even movement from your business location to your recovery site.
The NPP reentry program is a pre-event credentialing program that allows key personnel quick and temporary access to disaster-affected facilities once the facilities and surrounding area are considered safe for reentry by emergency response personnel.
Direct Access to Police & Fire Information
How do you get your information from public entities in emergencies?
EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER LIAISON
NPP places trained volunteer private-sector liaisons at local Emergency Operations Centers (EOC) in order to improve coordination and flow of information between the public and private sectors during disasters. At the EOC, decisions are made on prioritizing safety missions, protecting key infrastructure, and allocating resources. By working and building trust with key government agency partners, participating businesses benefit from improved situational awareness and can facilitate key resource requests during an actual emergency. Accurate, relevant, and validated timely information is often difficult to obtain during a disaster.
Have a Voice!
How does business communicate your needs with public agencies?
BUSINESS EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER
The private sector can inform the public sector of specific issues hindering their businesses’ recovery. Reporting these issues can assist the state in identifying bigger picture trends, possibly influencing priority of effort for the state recovery. The information may include situation reports and infrastructure status updates; this is information companies need in order to make better decisions regarding employee safety, business continuity, and customer relationships.
BUSINESS RESOURCE DIRECTORY
NPP serves as a consortium of information including a Business Resource Directory. This director provides a list of assets, equipment, and services available to the community to get the businesses back in operation following a disaster. The Business Resource Directory allows the business community to contribute in a cost-effective and leveraged way to recovery, which reduces the impact of emergencies in Nebraska communities.
