Continuity Resources and Technical Assistance

Every day, individuals, organizations, communities and governments provide critical services and perform essential functions upon which our neighbors and communities depend. Continuity ensures that the whole community has a plan for sustaining these services and functions when normal operations are disrupted.

Continuity is the ability to provide uninterrupted critical services, essential functions, and support, while maintaining organizational viability, before, during and after an event that disrupts normal operations. 

Outreach and Technical Assistance

In coordination with the FEMA Regions, FEMA’s National Continuity Programs provides outreach and technical assistance to whole community partners across the nation. Outreach and technical assistance offerings is available to non-federal partners, including state, local, tribal and territorial governments; the private sector; non-governmental organizations; and critical infrastructure owners and operators. 

Continuity Assessment Tool

Jurisdictions are encouraged to complete an assessment of current plans and programs using the Continuity Assessment Tool to identify shortfalls or gaps to guide requests for technical assistance. 

Continuity Resource Toolkit and Guidance Circular

FEMA maintains the Continuity Resource Toolkit, which is designed to provide additional tools, templates, and resources to assist in implementing the concepts found within the Continuity Guidance Circular.
