It is the formal process for ensuring that you have plans in place to deal with a disruption (fire, flood, loss of supplier etc.) affecting your business and/or premises.
Emergency planning helps you deal with the initial stages of any disruption, the emergency phase. How do you evacuate your building, where do you go, who do you call if a disruption occurs out of normal hours?
