Two worksheets are provided to assist with the needs assessment. Think about your program needs, identify additional resources and assess what is needed for your business. Internal Resources. There are many resources within your business that are needed for your preparedness program. These internal resources include staff for emergency response, business continuity and crisis communications teams. Other resources include facilities, systems, equipment, materials and supplies to support response, continuity and recovery operations. Identify needed resources and determine what resources are available internally. Resources that are not available must be obtained from external resources. Consider the following internal resources for your preparedness program. People. Employees can be assigned the following tasks. Employees should be trained so they understand the importance of their assignments and follow established procedures. Some employees may be given the opportunity to learn new skills. Facilities. Rooms or areas within the interior of a building that are structurally strong can shelter people from a tornado. Unobstructed exits that are marked with signs and equipped with emergency lighting are essential to quickly evacuating people if there is a fire or hazard inside.
