Preparedness for Faith Based & Non-Profit Organization (Prep4FBOs) 


Churches, faith-based and non-profit organizations face many of the same challenges small businesses deal with such as natural disasters, technology failures, and utility outages as well as increased threats to staff or congregant safety such as medical emergencies, bomb threats, protests, and active-shooter incidents.  These organizations also deal with other challenges: 

  • Increased unique risks related to special services including daycare, schools, or elderly care

  • A culture of service where the “doors are always open” increases security and safety risks

  • Increased need for critical services during and after disasters to support the community

  • Limited resources, small permanent staff, and a significant reliance on volunteers.


Faith based and non-profit organizations should implement simple and flexible preparedness processes using easy to use checklists that focus on mission critical functions during disasters. Training should concentrate on protecting the safety of service customers, volunteers, and other staff from the most likely threats. 


Accinctus Solutions for Faith Based and Non-Profit Organizations:
The Accinctus Preparedness for Churches and Faith-Based Organizations (Prep4FBOs) provides preparedness planning and training in a flexible, best-practice based approach that churches can utilize at 4 levels of activity depending on their requirements.   

  1. Prep4FBOs Workshop: Seminar to educate staff on basic preparedness fundamentals.  Includes a practical approach to risk analysis and developing a plan of action to address organization requirements.
  2. Prep4FBOs Assessment: Delivers a completed set of documents that lay a foundation of a preparedness program. Designed for organizations that need help establishing a program but will implement long term actions with internal resources. 
  3. Prep4FBOs Implementation Project: Full implementation of a self-sufficient preparedness program.  Applies business continuity practices using the Accinctus ADAPTABLE© model to meet preparedness requirements. 
  4. Program Review or Exercise: For organizations with established emergency procedures, Accinctus can provide an independent review or a tailored exercise to evaluate your plans and identify areas for improvement.


 Business Continuity for Large Businesses or Enterprises
(More than 1000 Employees)


  • Large and enterprise sized companies must meet risk management, business continuity, safety, and process improvement standards in a highly competitive environment.

  • Resources (people, expertise, budget, etc.) may be more available, but the risks to facilities, business operations, employees, financial expectations, and reputation of the company and corporate officers are exponentially greater than faced by SMBs. 

  • Depending on the organization, business continuity functions may be fragmented across different functions such as IT, Environmental Health & Safety, Security, Compliance, or other offices reducing the effectiveness of a business continuity program. 

  • Companies with successful business continuity programs may need outside expertise, perspectives, or reviews to find ways to improve their BC Program. 



  • Large businesses and enterprises should implement a business continuity program utilizing a standards based Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) as defined in ISO 22301 or NFPA 1600. 

  • Integrate employee preparedness training with corporate training programs.  


Accinctus Solutions for Large Businesses or Enterprises: 

  1. Comprehensive business continuity consulting assistance to establish, manage, or improve your company business continuity program enhancing your internal expertise and resources.
  2. Completion of Risk Assessment, Business Impact Analysis, or specific threat and mitigation assessments.

  4. Development of a comprehensive training program for employees, team members, managers and executives
  5. Development and facilitation of exercises to identify gaps in program effectiveness and highlight areas for improvement.

Preparedness for Growing Small-to-Medium Businesses (SMBs)
(50-500 Employees / 500-1000 Employees)



  • SMBs are expected to meet higher expectations in regards to standards, safety programs, and other requirements that they may not be aware of due to a lack of internal expertise in areas outside their core business.  They’ve outgrown the training wheels and it is not acceptable to say “I didn’t know” to regulators, customers, or suppliers. 

  • Preparedness / business continuity processes may be difficult to fully implement until leadership commits the staff and financial resources.

  • The organization may still believe incorrect assumptions such as “Our insurance will take care of everything after a disaster.”

  • Only 25% of SMBs have taken action to prepare for disasters and disruptions.  The three-quarters of SMBs in the U.S. without any preparedness planning have between a 20-33% chance of surviving after a disaster.


As a business grows the mindset towards preparedness should also evolve:  

  • Business continuity / preparedness should have a designated representative to manage the development of continuity planning or a business partner who can provide that expertise.

  • The focus for preparedness should expand beyond basic employee and customer safety to include planning for impacts from disasters on critical operations and company reputation. 

  • Employee training should evolve beyond a one-and-done approach to a regular structure at least annually. 

  • A documented Business Continuity Plan (BCP) should match company culture and requirements and show greater intent to safeguard employees and operations beyond minimum legal compliance. 


Accinctus Solutions for SMBs: 

  1. Development of an appropriately structured business continuity program based on the Accinctus ADAPTABLE© model including a Risk Assessment and Business Impact Analysis, an Emergency Action Plan (EAP), and a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) which should address mitigation and disaster recover (IT) considerations.
  2. Tailored employee preparedness and response team training integrated into your current employee training program.


Preparedness for Micro & Small Businesses

(1-50 Employees)



  • Micro & small businesses are challenged to balance limited resources (time, people, budget) with business demands.

  • Traditional preparedness and business continuity has not focused on small business so most tools, systems, and training were not designed to fit the needs of small business.

  • Small businesses tend to incorrectly believe that disasters won’t happen to them or there is nothing they can do to prepare.  Less than 25% of SMBs total take any preparedness actions at all which contributes to the fact that they have the lowest survival rate of any business after a disruption or disaster.  Even small incidents can put a small business out of business.



Micro & small businesses should implement simple and flexible preparedness steps that: 

  • Provide large gains for small investment of time and resources focused on the most likely 3-5 threats.

  • Utilize self-guided tools and easy to use checklists in times of crisis.

  • Focus training on basic preparedness and response to protect customer and employee safety from the most likely threats.

  • Ensure basic legal compliance. 


Accinctus Solutions for Micro & Small Businesses:

  1. A no-cost initial assessment to identify your requirements based on regulatory and operational preparedness needs.
