Site-Level Planning
Module / Site-Level Planning

Module Overview

The Site-Level Planning module helps users set up an effective resilience planning process by creating a core resilience planning team, identifying and engaging site-level leadership and key stakeholders, collecting relevant planning information, identifying site-level resilience priorities, defining the scope and boundaries of the assessment, and identifying critical functions at the site. Since hazards and threats and the capability to handle them are site-specific, and knowledge of site systems is often understood best by site personnel, the site is the primary planning unit in the Technical Resilience Navigator (TRN). A “site” refers to an independently managed building or campus that carries out specific organizational missions.

Having direction and support from organizational and site-level leadership is often critical for successful resilience planning efforts and, ultimately, for project implementation. The Site-Level Planning module sets up the TRN resilience planning process in a way that will leverage existing data and site expertise, generate leadership buy-in, and establish a framework for documenting information for use in subsequent modules.
