This one year project in partnership with the Canadian Red Cross Society will support BCSTH members to prevent, mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from actual or potential emergencies.
The project will build capacity within BCSTH and its member organizations by developing accessible and relevant risk assessment tools and Service Continuity Planning templates as well as training to support members in fluid and effective service continuity during disruptions. As part of the project, 5 BCSTH member programs will be selected as pilot sites, receive training and utilize and test out the risk assessment and Service Continuity Planning templates.
Throughout the project, BCSTH will work with a risk management and service continuity expert to develop a comprehensive Service Continuity Planning Strategy to assist members in attaining and maintaining functional levels of service when experiencing external disruptions from climate emergencies, hazard disruptions and disasters. This project will support BCSTH members in fulfilling their BC Housing Operating Agreements, specifically Schedule G: Risk Management and the development of a Business Continuity Program, also known as a Service Continuity Planning Strategy.
