About Us

Ever hear of the term “unified command?" It is the term used by public first responders to ensure that all responding agencies, (fire, police, medical, emergency management, etc.) are working together to resolve the incident.

Ever hear of the term "business resilience?" This is the private sector's term to coordinate its processes and procedures before, during and after a business interruption. Like the concept of unified command, it is designed to ensure that everyone in the organization is working together towards incident resolution and restoration of key processes.

HandPlan has been developed by a “unified command” team of public sector first responders (fire, law and emergency management) and "business resilience" professionals from the private sector with experience in crisis management, business continuity and disaster recovery.

The HandPlan team has many years experience with public and private agencies and global corporations. Our goal was to develop a product that was easy to understand and use; can be tailored to an organization; has user-controlled content and has the ability for rapid and accurate information updates. After all, it’s your plan; you should be able to control it!
