The Northeastern Illinois Public Safety Training Academy (NIPSTA) is pleased to announce a new workshop to assist small, local businesses with developing a basic Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) for their individual organization. By the conclusion of the workshop series, participants will have authored an actual plan which can be utilized to assist their organization with preparing for, responding to and recovering from a wide range of crisis scenarios. Throughout the process, NIPSTA representatives will provide templates, advice and specific strategies for successful plan development and maintenance. A particular emphasis will be placed on crisis communications to ensure that customers, staff members and other stakeholders are kept apprised of the organization’s efforts to maintain operations. All sessions are facilitated by NIPSTA’s Executive Director Jill Ramaker.
