  • Guides to Emergency Preparedness Resources
    BACC encourages institutions to have an emergency preparedness plan in place. The guides developed by BACC's field service office provide information specific to each geographic area within the western region. A well-prepared institution can respond more quickly and with greater efficiency to an emergency. These guides can help your institution develop an emergency telephone list and create and maintain a well-stocked area of supplies and equipment to use in initial recovery efforts.

    The Guides are now available as PDF files and may be downloaded at no cost. Click on the links below to view the Guide for your region. Print versions are also available, and may be purchased through our Western Region Field Service Office.
