(ATLANTIC) A Continuity of Operations/Continuity of Government Plan (COOP/COG) was discussed at the Cass County Board of Supervisors meeting this morning.
Rob Koppert, 911 Center Director, told the board that they are putting together a plan for the government facilities in case something devastating should happen.
“God forbid, if something would happen to the Board of Supervisors or to certain members of the Board of Supervisors that we would have a rank as far as who is the ranking member, who is in charge and who is making decisions at certain points,” said Koppert. “And then what would happen if we physically lose any of the facilities that we currently use. Of course that would include the Court House, the Annex and a few other facilities…. how we would continue to provide essential Government functions if those were to happen.”
Koppert says a list has been made of what each department would have to do as far as their contribution to the plan and a Department Head meeting will be held to discuss the plan.
Koppert said the COOP/COG initiative started a number of years ago, but it’s really starting to take shape now across the state.
