A Business Continuity Plan (PDF 978 KB) captures all of the information required to ensure the continuation of your business during and following a disaster or critical incident.
The following preparation checklists can be used during the Business Continuity Planning process to put strategies in place to help cope and prepare your business for bushfire and flooding:
Logan Early Warning Alerts
Businesses can register for Logan Early Warning to receive alerts for potentially dangerous weather and bushfires that may impact their area. This service allows businesses to plan, prepare for and take early action to minimise any potential damage that may occur.
Tourism and Accommodation Providers
Council has developed the Disaster Preparedness for Tourism and Accommodation Providers Guide (PDF 1744 KB) to support and assist local tourism operators within the City of Logan to plan for, respond to and recover from the potential impacts of disasters and emergencies in the local area.
The guide is relevant to accommodation providers such as hotels, B&B’s, motels and privately let tourist accommodation properties, along with operators that have daily visitors who may not be familiar with the area. This guide provides information to support the development of a Business Continuity Plan (PDF 978 KB) that considers not only the impacts to your business, but also to your visitors, and how to support your visitors during potential disaster events.
