Continuity of Operations Plan ( COOP )

Continuity of operations planning is the initiative that ensures that Clark College is able to continue operation of its essential functions under a broad range of circumstances including all-hazard emergencies as well as natural, man-made, and technological threats. Normal day to day operations can be affected at any given time, without warning, and may affect only a small portion of the campus, or could affect the entire College. 

An organization’s continuity capability, its ability to perform its essential functions continuously, rests upon the Four Phases of Continuity

Each Clark College department is required to have an updated continuity plan in place to minimize the affects of an incident and to ensure the rapid continuation of day to day operations.
