It is the policy of Arapahoe Library District to develop, test and maintain a disaster recovery plan formulated to continue basic business operations during and immediately after disruptive events. Disruptions to business operations may come from a variety of causes such as natural or manmade disasters, terrorism, and technology failures. The Library District will maintain a plan for the expedient recovery of all operational systems in order to minimize the impact of any type of disaster.
The comprehensive disaster recovery plan will identify a Crisis Management Team, procedures, staff roles and resources. Staff will be trained in practices and procedures for evacuation and recovery. The disaster recovery plan will also define immediate steps to be taken to restore services to patrons, and provide community support.
The disaster recovery plan for Arapahoe Libraries is captured in the Safety Manual for the district and accessible to all staff via the staff intranet. The Manager for Facilities and Security is responsible for reviewing and updating the plan as needed and at minimum every two years.
