Contingency Planning

Contingency planning can be defined as planning for a future event or condition, or a tool to combat a chance occurrence. The aim of this booklet is to provide Forestry Commission staff with guidance and information on how to combat ‘crisis management’ through ‘contingency planning.’ The booklet will help staff:

  • develop a crisis management planning framework
  • develop strategies that can be used to pre-empt crisis management
  • compile 3rd party networking lists for each crisis category
  • provide an internationally accepted method of managing incidents.
