Business continuity and emergency planning

Business continuity management is a process of planning to ensure that your organisation has a relatively quick and painless return to "business as usual" in the event of a major crisis or interruption, regardless of the cause of the incident (be it man-made or natural, accidental or deliberate). 

The Business Continuity team works in close partnership with Camden Police to run a range of events to help businesses become more resilient. 

The Camden Emergency Planning Group (CAMEPG) consists of organisations from the health, transport, universities, voluntary, utilities and emergency services and private business sectors who meet every two months to discuss emergency planning and business continuity issues for Camden.

If you would like to find out more about CAMEPG or attend a meeting of the group please contact the emergency planning and business continuity team
