Communication emergency systems must also be established. Responsibilities for each staff with regards to the recovery, shutdown and restart procedure should be outlined. An evacuation plan should also be developed including employee support.  Procedures on shutting down the utility and the safe processing of operations is a necessity.

Methods in protecting records, inventory and materials must also be developed.  Plan implementation Staying in touch with the operations emergency center on your own state is important.  In this stage, the appropriate preparation, shutdown, emergency backup and evacuation should be started.
