Disaster Management Plan Scenario XYZ Thesis

The disaster management plan will minimize the potentialities of the disaster in the areas as follows: (1) Minimizing potential economic loss; (2) Decreasing potential exposures; (3) Reducing the probability of occurrence; (4) Reduction of disruptions to operations; (5) providing an orderly recovery; (6) minimizing insurance premiums; (7) reduction of reliance on certain key individuals; (8) protecting organizational assets; (9) ensuring the safety of personnel and customer; (10) Reducing disruptions to operations; (11) Ensuring organizational stability; (12) Providing an orderly recovery; (13) Minimizing insurance premiums; (14) Reducing reliance on certain key individuals; (15) Protecting the assets of the organization; (16) Ensuring the safety of personnel and customers; (17) Minimizing decision-making during a disastrous event; and (18) Minimizing legal liability (Wold, 1997) V. SIMULATION for TESTING and PRACTICE

There is no way to know when a disaster will occur and preparation will necessarily involve testing of the disaster management plan and this can be accomplished through simulation. The work of Garris (2008) entitled: "Put Your Disaster Plan to the Test" states that simulation of disaster plans conducted and states the following percentages per types of simulation conducted.

VI. PREVENTION, MITIGATION, and CONTINUITY of the ORGANIZATION

Three critical factors in disaster management planning for the organization are those of: (1) prevention; (2) mitigation; and (3) continuity of the organization. (Garris, 2008) These factors make a requirement of security systems that are highly integrated and include security personnel who are trained thoroughly and response procedures that are of an appropriate nature and that allow for varied contingencies. The use of technological tools to enable the integration of systems allow for control and display of the devices via automation and access such as CCTV fiber-optic communications and transmission in what is a centralization of records and data.

VII. TESTING, ASSESSMENT, and PRACTICE FOLLOWING by ONGOING RM

After the disaster, management plan has been designed, developed implemented, testing, assessed, practices and then has been made known to those in the organization it is necessary that an ongoing and continual risk management process ensue in order that disaster...

Coordination as well is an ongoing process or continuum in the organization's disaster management planning and this is inclusive of the coordination of contingency planning in responding to and recovering from an occurrence of a disaster. Coordination will include external agency collaboration and critical communication with specific stakeholder groups of relevance and finally will involve the establishment and testing of the procedures of media in negotiating the organization's plans.
VIII. SECURITY in the ORGANIZATION

While the issue of security is being addressed last in this review, it is most certainly not due to it being held in any form to be the 'least' in importance in the organization's disaster management plan. Background checks are a requirement for those whom the organization intends to employee because these employees need to be solid, trustworthy and of the nature of individuals who hold high standards and adhere to principles of excellence in their work relationship with the organization.

SUMMARY and CONCLUSION

As this review has demonstrated, the disaster management plan is inclusive of various stages in which specific goals are accomplished toward the ongoing development of a risk mitigation plan for the organization that is realistic, workable and tailored specifically to the organization. This process involves design, development, implementation, dissemination to the organization stakeholders, and next followed by assessment, practice, and simulation, along a continuum of constant updating of the plan so ensure that the plan is relevant and appropriate as indicated by trending.
