Dear Leader,

As correctional facilities nationwide battle the challenges of COVID-19, some jails and prisons have also been forced to evacuate inmates during the pandemic. A Louisiana jail was evacuated ahead of Tropical Storm Sally in early September, while three prisons in Salem, Oregon, were evacuated due to wildfires.

Inmate evacuations during a worldwide pandemic would test even the most robust emergency preparedness plan. In this month’s leadership newsletter, we outline the steps needed to effectively plan for both manmade and natural disasters. Does your facility have a continuity of operations plan? Click here to answer our poll.

Stay safe.
