Continuity of Operations (COOP) Planning
Why have a COOP plan?
Imagine if you came to work on Monday and found an emergency, such as fire or flood, occurred over the weekend rendering your building unable to be occupied. What do you do? Where would you go? Who's in charge? How do you let others know what happened?
A Continuity of Operations (COOP) plan clearly outlines the contingency measures a campus department/unit has in place so their mission essential functions continue with minimal interruption, despite major loss of personnel, primary facilities or other operations becoming unusable for long or short periods of time.
UW-Stevens Point Campus Overall Continuity of Operations (COOP) Plan establishes guidance for the methods, procedures and protocols that the University uses to recover and restore performance of the campus' primary mission essential functions that may be disrupted by man-made or natural disasers.
