  • Description

    The 2019 edition of NFPA 1600 will help you improve the odds for your community or organization in the face of a crisis. Learn what you need to know about disaster prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, continuity, and recovery.

    A new requirement to establish and maintain crisis management capabilities heads the list of major changes in the 2019 edition of NFPA 1600®, Standard on Continuity, Emergency, and Crisis Management. This standard is dedicated to helping users prepare for any type of crisis or disaster -- resulting from natural, human, or technological events. Widely used by public, non-profit, nongovernmental, and private entities on a local, regional, national, international, and global basis, NFPA 1600 continues to evolve as a vital standard for the development, implementation, assessment, and maintenance of disaster/emergency management and continuity of operations programs.

    The standard was adopted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a voluntary consensus standard for emergency preparedness, and the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (the 9/11 Commission) recognized NFPA 1600 as our National Preparedness Standard.*

    Significant revisions in the 2019 edition reflect the needs of all types of companies and organizations today.

    • The standard is reorganized for better alignment with the PDCA (plan-do-check-act) model or Deming Cycle.
    • New requirements to establish and maintain crisis management capabilities include critical details regarding assigned responsibilities and processes.
    • All-new Annex L on data interoperability for emergency management, continuity, and crisis management provides criteria for assessing your organization's needs and capabilities, to help you develop plans to fill any gaps.
    • Numerous updated crosswalks and annexes reflect changes to the main body of the standard, for easier navigation and application.

    Get the most advanced tools and strategies for disaster prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, continuity, and recovery.

    Update to the latest edition of NFPA 1600 and stay up to code with this critical source for emergency management officials in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. (Softbound, 97 pp., 2019)

    *The 2013, 2007, and 2010 editions of NFPA 1600 have been designated by DHS to be used by accredited 3rd parties, to evaluate and certify compliance of entities under its Private Sector Preparedness (PS Prep) Program.

  • How the NFPA Handbooks Differ from Codes and Standards

    THE NFPA HANDBOOKS DIFFER FROM CODES AND STANDARDS

    Ever wonder what the difference is between an NFPA® handbook and a code or standard? We’re glad you asked.

    NFPA codes and standards both provide requirements for achieving outcomes. Handbooks take a deeper dive, providing the full text of a code or standard as well as expert commentary and features such as graphics, decision trees, testing procedures, case studies, sample forms and checklists, and other helpful aids to give a better understanding of the reasoning behind the requirements and how to apply them.

    JUST REMEMBER:

    • A code or standard is a framework—a set of rules to follow with a goal to achieve a certain result
    • A handbook is a connector—linking requirements to application by helping you understand the reasoning behind a code or standard

    The simplest way to think about it is that codes and standards list the technical requirements while handbooks explain those requirements to clarify how to apply them.
