New 2016 NFPA 1600

Free access to 2016 version of  NFPA 1600: Standard on Disaster/Emergency Management and Business Continuity/Continuity of Operations Programs. The document is 80 pages.

Clarification on what “free access” means. Thanks to Don Watson for this information:

An individual may obtain one copy, downloadable at no cost, by following the NFPA website prompts for “Purchase PDF.” It asks individuals to register with NFPA, but following that, one may download a copy. The “purchase” of a digital version is at no cost, as will be indicated when prompts are completed.

NFPA 1600 is an invaluable reference for private and public organizations, including municipalities, to establish the standard of care in emergency operations, referencing the entire range of emergency risks, including natural disasters (multi-hazards). It outlines steps to represent due diligence for businesses, organizations, and institutions to establish with their organizational polices and practices. It includes guidelines for stakeholder engagement in the process.

It is a little tricky to get the free pdf version, but it should be worth the trouble.

  1. There should be no restriction on citing NFPA 1600 as one would cite any source in an academic work for publication, correct? The free download is easy to access, especially if one is already registered. Thank for this, Claire.
