1 School of Theatre and Dance Business Continuity Plan 5/23/13 Leadership Succession List here the people who can make operational decisions if the head of your department or unit is absent. Name Phone Alt Phone Number Number Head of Operations John Shearin First Successor Jeff Woodruff Second Successor Robert Caprio Third Successor none Objectives Considering your department s unique mission, describe your university support service, teaching, research service objectives, etc. List those services that will still be critical if the University were to close. Instruction is the primary mission of the School of Theatre and Dance. If the university were closed to students, face-to-face instruction would be suspended until the university reopened. If facilities became unavailable for any length of time, alternate means of delivering instruction will be critical. Much of the instruction--such as all technique classes in acting, musical theatre and dance--is experiential and cannot be duplicated if the participants become widely scattered. For such courses, faculty will need to develop alternative assignments that can be communicated via electronic resources. Alternate instruction will be maintained through the use of Blackboard, and other electronic means, provided servers remain functional and power is available. Theatre and dance production in public performance is also an important part of the unit s mission. As we did during the aftermath of Hurricane Floyd, when widespread flooding necessitated changes in performance schedules, we will broadcast such changes through various news media and internet web communication. For general communication with faculty, students and other clients, the SoTD maintains an electronic callboard to which all constituents are expected to subscribe for up to dates notices and announcements.

2 Emergency Access to Information and Systems If access to your department s information and systems is essential in an emergency, describe your emergency access plan below. This may include remote access (or authorization to allow remote access), contacting IT support, Blackboard, off-site data backup, backup files on flash drives, hard copies, or use of alternate systems (e.g., Yahoo). Pre-arrange any authorizations that are needed. Access to SoTD information and systems is not essential in a short-term emergency less than two-weeks duration. However, in the event of a long-term crisis, access to electronic records for faculty and students, course load and schedule files, inventory records, and donor databases is assured through storage on back-up external hard-drives, stored in locations apart from the administrative offices.

11 East Carolina University Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity Plan Testing Documentation Instructions: The following template should be utilized in documenting the test results of the annual disaster recovery/business continuity plan for user departments. A copy of this document should be kept on file in the user department and stored on-line with Information Technology and Computing Services. Please type NA if a particular section does not apply. Test Schedule: Work Unit: School of Theatre and Dance Participants: Shearin, Woodruff, Caprio, Ballance Name of Person(s) Completing This Form: Shearin Date of Test: 7/9/10 Time of Test: 9:00am Location of Test: Messick Theatre Arts office Vendors Involved: N/A Test Resource Requirements: System Resources: N/A Network Resources: N/A Off-Site Stores: N/A Forms and Records: N/A Other: N/A Test Objectives: List the test objectives and describe the anticipated results or goals of each objective. Objectives: As the first test of our new plan, the main objective of this test was to make the staff aware of the plan and their duties as outlined in the plan. Our second objective was to look for weaknesses in our plan.

12 Test Results: For each test objective, list the actual results of the test. Keep any supporting documentation of the test results on file in the department and note the location of the supporting documentation. Location of Supporting Documentation: Director s Office fireproof file Results: Staff members were made aware of the plan and understand their essential functions as related to the plan. Faculty will need to be informed in the fall and will need to include contingency instructional statements in their syllabi. The most important weakness of the plan is that this template forces a general plan for all contingencies. To be a more effective plan, we feel the need to consider different scenarios fire, flood, pandemic, hurricane, cyber attack separately, with the possibility of different solutions depending on the scenario. This will be an ongoing project. Summary of Observations: Summarize the test results and include any procedures and/or objectives that need to be revised. If the disaster recovery/business continuity plan needs to be revised as a result of this test, please update the on-line copy and any off-site copies. As a result of this test, the following information has been obtained: Our 9 grand piano will not be moveable from the Studio Theatre in an acute flood emergency. As a result of this test, the following procedures have been revised: n/a Based upon the results of this test, future tests will include the following objectives: To acquaint the faculty and staff with the plan. To monitor the plan for revision and continuing effectiveness.

13 DIVISION BUSINESS CONTINUITY/DISASTER RECOVERY PLAN To the Division Head: The Internal Auditor s office, ITCS and the Office of Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) are pleased to present a format to help you prepare your Division s Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery plan (CB/DRP) The BC/DRP is an integral part of an overall campus emergency preparedness program. Putting the written program into action provides specific guidance for your Division staff to follow when, due to an emergency, the EMERGENCY OPERATIONS PLAN is implemented. These document are meant to be a tool for your Division and sub-units to use to develop a systematic Emergency Action Plan and a guide to help your staff organize their response to an emergency to ensure business continuity. Once developed, this plan should be reviewed and tested annually to insure information is current and viable. This document is divided into two sections. The first section, which you are reading now, is intended to provide you, the Division Director, with some relevant background information on the goals of BC/DRP as well as give guidance on the tasks that may be required to effectively implement the plan. You may want to post or make some of this information available to other key staff or unit directors. The second section is comprised mostly of templates to help direct activities of the various BC/DRP personnel within your organization. Each template has many sections where you are guided to insert specific information, like the location of your Division s Emergency Operations Center, if designated, or the name of specific personnel assigned to complete that duty. These templates are intended to be a starting point, an example, and a means of provoking thought. You may also wish to use some of the key (*) templates as unit operational templates. Be sure to establish strong lines of communication within your division. It is strongly suggested that you involve your key staff when determining the relevance and use of the templates and their particular role in the organizational chart. Adapt as many templates as you feel you need, drop those that do not apply to your operation and make new guides for activities not covered. The key to these templates is to fashion the plan that will work best to organize a response that will insure your division s business continuity and accelerate recovery from a disaster situation. Also, consider the organization example. Your division may be organized differently or you may wish to organize your staff s activities differently. This is O.K. and you should feel free to organize responsibilities in a manner that will work best with your division or department. After you have customized the template to your Division, you are requested to distribute a copy of it to all departments within your division and provide one copy to EH&S. While these templates are modeled on the hazards and recovery activities associated with Hurricanes, care should be taken to give thought to other emergency situations like

14 fires, loss of facility, loss of information systems, or drastic reduction in staff which could cause extensive damage or severely disrupt your operations or the operation of the University. We strongly encourage all units to start using these templates this summer to develop an emergency action plan as part of your emergency procedures update process. All plans should be completed by August 1, EDUCATING DIVISION STAFF The best-laid plans are useless if people are not familiar with them. If your Division s staff are not prepared for an emergency, business and operational recovery efforts will be delayed. It is important that Division staff is familiar with what to do before, during, and after an emergency such as a fire, hurricane, flood, information systems failure, or other disaster. Educating staff is the key to emergency preparedness and should be a joint effort of the Division s administration and Division staff. The following are suggested steps to take towards preparedness: 1. Develop a Division BC/DR committee Appoint and work with your BC/DR committee to draft an effective response plan and to prepare and distribute informational materials to the rest of your staff. Assign this group the responsibility of identifying the role your division plays in a disaster situation, assess the roles and responsibilities of each unit within your division, designate department/unit responsibilities and develop strong communication and reporting channels. The committee members should be responsible for distributing materials to their respective departments. You should schedule a Division BC/DR Committee meeting to go over the Emergency Recovery Plan and to conduct a tabletop drill to test the plan. 2. Ensure Division staff are informed and prepared. Your Division s BC/DR Committee should make sure that each department and unit is trained as to their responsibilities and that the plan is readily available for referral. Each unit should develop an emergency kit to hold the plan, any necessary forms and software that would be needed to carry out their specific responsibilities in an emergency situation. Include other items that may be needed by staff to maintain their roles. One thing that cannot be stressed enough is that employees may not be able to or willing to function professionally unless their own families are prepared for emergencies. In this sense, personal preparedness is professional preparedness. Department Heads should insist that staff take steps for their own family s safety. EH&S offers presentations and materials on emergency preparedness for home and at work to help your staff get prepared.

15 Try to identify any Division staff with special expertise or interest in emergency planning and possibly get them to coordinate their groups ahead of time. Support the person(s) taking care of emergency preparedness, education and emergency supplies in your department with time and resources. If you have questions, call the Office of Environment, Health & Safety ( ). EMERGENCY PLANNING CHECKLIST This checklist summarizes the important actions you need to accomplish in preparing for emergencies. The items listed are discussed in more detail in the following Emergency Operation Plan and in this introductory information. 1. Appoint your CO/DR Committee Appoint your committee members from your staff that would have key roles in your Divisions recovery efforts. Explain the need for this planning and the process of developing the recovery plan. Provide them with their charge and set a deadline for the completion of your Division s BC/DR Plan. Date Completed 5/29/12 2. Meet with the Emergency Recovery Committee Meet with Emergency Recovery Committee members to decide who will act as the overall coordinator (and alternate) for the recovery efforts during hurricane, winter storm or other University wide of departmental emergency situations. Date completed 5/29/12 3. Prepare Business Continuity Kits As Seen with Hurricane Floyd, utilities can be interrupted and we could expect to be on our own for up to 48 hours after a major hurricane event making business recovery difficult. Additionally, critical documents, equipment and software/files could be damaged. Taking time to put together Business Continuity survival kit could prove very useful. The Emergency Recovery Committee can help by recommending what information, forms and software may need to be protected and encourage units to prepare their own specific kits. Each Department and unit within a Division should inventory what materials will be needed to ensure business continuity and develop a secure Emergency Continuity Kit. Date completed_5/29/12 4. Prepare Your Division s Emergency Plan Work with your Division BC/DR Committee to prepare and finalize your Division s Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Plan (BC/DRP). Date completed 5/29/12 5. Training The time and effort you put into planning will have little meaning unless your department and units are trained concerning those portions of your BC/DR plan that involve them. To do this, assign a representative on the Division s BC/DR Committee to plan a brief but direct informational training campaign in which they

16 inform their department members of the department's EOC location, unit responsibilities and recovery procedures. After that, a memo sent to all units with an annual update should be sufficient to keep most people informed. It is especially important that departments inform any new employees unfamiliar with the Division s Emergency BC/DRP of their role and responsibilities. Date completed 5/29/12 6. Practice Tabletop drills are required by ITCS and should be scheduled annually. The drills are generally brief, effective, and they give department/unit staff an opportunity to practice BC/DRP guidelines and procedures. These tabletop drills are a good time to look for areas where the plan may be weak or have gaps in recovery activities. Drills should be documented and kept on file. You may also want to include a shelter drill for tornado preparedness. May is a good time to plan this, since it is near the start of the hurricane season. Date completed 5/29/12 7. Update Your Business continuity/disaster Recovery Plan (BC/DRP) Review your BC/DRP annually to ensure the information is correct and complete and for changes in operational guidelines. Are there new departments in your Division? Are they included in your BC/DRP? Conduct the BC/DRP review each April and distribute updated BC/DRP material to your department and unit heads by mid May of each year. Updated next update March 14, 2011
