Disaster Resource GUIDE • Quarterly Mini-GUIDEs • Continuity e-GUIDE • Online GUIDE
The Disaster Resource GUIDE was launched in 1996 with a mission to consolidate, integrate and communicate information and resources for emergency management and business continuity. Our readers are practitioners and executives who have business continuity, emergency management, and/or homeland security responsibilities in the public sector and all industries of the private sector.
We are seeking articles with depth and substance that identify issues and provide solutions in one of our six content categories:
- Planning, Preparedness & Management
- Human Concerns
- Information Availability & Security
- Telecom & Satcom
- Facility Issues
- Crisis Communications, Response & Recovery
Article topics might include lessons learned from real events, emerging trends, technical issues & threats, as well as research and development.
There are opportunities to publish in the upcoming Disaster Resource GUIDE, the quarterly special editions (Mini-GUIDEs), the weekly Continuity e-GUIDE and the Online GUIDE. Articles chosen for the annual GUIDE will have “shelf life” and relevance for 12-18 months.
