Disaster Management web page aims to give a through insight to the disaster management practice. Oregon law, under Oregon Revised Statute 401.305, declares that, “Each county of this state shall, and each city may, establish an emergency management agency which shall be directly responsible to the executive officer or governing body of the county or city".
Emergency managers consider and take into account all hazards, all phases, all stakeholders and all impacts relevant to disasters. Ideally, the affected area should be put in a condition equal to or better than it was before the disaster took place.
The coordination of those efforts prior to the emergency falls to an established emergency management system and the Deschutes County Emergency Services.
While Central Oregon residents and visitors to our area will never have to face the threat of a tsunami or hurricane locally, there ARE a number of natural events that could pose a natural disaster threat to Deschutes County. Service Stream provide solutions in the telecommunications and utilities sectors in areas of construction and design, asset management services, contact centre activities, logistics, and technology solutions. The responsibility to oversee the Emergency Management program has been delegated to an appointed Emergency Manager. It protects communities by coordinating and integrating all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other man-made disasters.

Organisation’s disaster recovery strategies review technical options addressing the gap between business expectation and current state.
By following all phases of the methodology in strict order, RDNS, have delivered a DR capability that is fit for purpose. An abridged BIA was undertaken, which provided recovery requirements, restart order, and assisted in the determination of the technical solution.
SSC established their DR capability utilising VMware’s Site Recovery Manager (SRM), which provided the required rapid return to service.
A DRP (including existing recovery procedures), was created for both data centres, allowing them to be amended as technical DR capability increased. An abridged BIA was undertaken using process recovery requirements captured in the (business continuity) BIA. By undertaking all phases of the DR methodology (although not in strict order) GPCS have progressed from having some disjointed and complicated technical replication, and providing unknown DR capability, to having a defined DR stake in the ground – with support and understanding of the business to move forward and deliver a DR solution that’s fit for purpose. The mitigation and preparedness phases occur as improvements are made in anticipation of an event. In Deschutes County, the overall emergency management responsibility rests with the Deschutes County Sheriff’.

When a disaster, no matter how large or small, does strike, residents trust that their elected officials, police, fire, and emergency medical services will respond in a coordinated, professional manner. We specialise in all aspects of Information Technology, from managed services, through to data centre, data management, systems management and cloud consulting.
As we will see through some of Thomas Duryea’s clients, disaster recovery that is “fit for purpose” depends upon particular requirements, and may consist of implementing all, or some of the five phases. The below diagram sets out how two business continuity management standards (the British Standards Institution’s BS 25999 and the Business Continuity Institute’s Good Practice Guidelines) can apply to DR methodology, through five phases. SSC have scheduled quarterly exercises, and by undertaking selected phases of the methodology, they have ensured their DR capability is fit for their purpose. Emergency management seeks to promote safer, less-vulnerable communities with the capacity to cope with hazards and disasters.
Emergency management is the organized analysis, planning, decision-making, and assignment of available resources to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from the effects of all hazards.
