NFPA 1600 provides a Standard on Disaster/Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs. It establishes a common set of criteria that sets a foundation for disaster management, emergency management, and business continuity programs using a total program approach. The 2010 edition of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1600 is now available from the NFPA web site. The download is free; the address is www.nfpa.org . NFPA has been involved in planning for, response to, and mitigation of weapons of mass destruction incidents since the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993.
