To ensure that the Institute can continue its mission after a disruption, MIT Emergency Management collaborates with departments, labs, and centers (DLCs) to develop continuity plans. The goal of a continuity plan is to ensure that essential functions will continue after a disruption.
What is Continuity?
Continuity is the effort to ensure the continuation of Essential Functions after a disruption.
What are Essential Functions?
Essential Functions are vital activities or services that must continue at all times, or be restored within a short time frame, after a disruption.
Are There Resources to Assist Me?
To assist both individuals and DLCs, we have created two separate worksheets. The worksheet for DLCs is meant to assist leaders in creating a robust plan for their entire unit, while the worksheet for individuals is designed to capture the minimum information needed to ensure their essential functions will continue.
