Continuity planners know that a successful preparedness program requires three things—leadership, commitment, and financial support. The latter is why so many are now scrambling to wrap up their budget planning for 2020. With only five weeks left in the year, there’s a push for more people, better tools, and the funds to support all-important training and exercises. Interestingly, one simple line item, BOLDplanning, can help ensure these organizations gain all three. Here’s how.

  • Expert Consulting – Collectively possessing decades of continuity, emergency and hazard mitigation planning experience, BOLDplanning’s Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) are passionate about helping organizations, large or small, public or private, to build and nurture a culture of preparedness. But don’t just take the company’s word for it. Read what one of its many customers has to say: 

“Professionalism defines BOLDplanning,” said Durk Dunham, Director Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division (MI). “Their communication and cooperation is second to none. The services they provide demonstrate the highest quality commitment.”

  • Tools & Software – Easily replacing cumbersome and outdated paper-based plans, the cloud-based platform guides users through the entire planning process. Maintenance included. Best of all, no previous experience with preparedness planning is required for its use and the learning curve is short. 

“The online plan template gave us a step-by-step process to build the COOP plan. Our plan went together in less than six months,” said Ken Jones, Director of Emergency Management Rochester (MN)/SE Region 1 HSEM JPB. “The plan is easy to maintain, and keep updated. Our partnership with BOLDplanning took us from frustration to success.”

  • Training & Exercises – Having developed more than 10,000 emergency, continuity and mitigation over the years, BOLDplanning offers hands-on assistance to facilitate HSEEP-guided exercises and training programs that support an organization’s overarching preparedness goals. All services are tailored to meet the specific needs and compliance requirements of clients, which today includes colleges and universities, hospitals and healthcare coalitions, and state, local and tribal governments, among others.
