Emergency Management and Business Continuity Within Commercial Aviation

This article discusses the importance of emergency management and business continuity within the commercial aviation sector. These endeavors are both essential in responding to and recovering from an emergency incident, because incidents can compromise the infrastructure and the capability of businesses and other organizations to provide services. Integrating the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS) into aviation emergency management and business continuity may help to increase interoperability among organizations involved in public mutual aid and resolve emergencies more efficiently and cost-effectively.
