The reason for this is that without a detailed assessment of the situation, sound decisions and directions cannot be made by the CMT. Once the Detailed Damage Assessment has been given approval by the Crisis Manager, Facilities and Services will start coordinating the relevant contractors / specialists. These specialists will need to be informed that they are required to perform, as detailed and accurately as possible, a full evaluation as to the extent of the damage, parts availability or alternates (if applicable), cost and realistic estimated recovery times. The Detailed Damage Assessment is discussed at the next crisis meeting. At this meeting, the Crisis Manager will then make decisions based on the information to hand and allocate responsibilities for actions to relevant teams. 27 | P a g e

The purpose of a detailed damage assessment is to gather more accurate information. Ensure that emergency power supplies, phone connection (or mobile phones) and staff amenities are available. Develop Salvage and Restoration Options The duty of the Facilities and Plant Team is to restore the necessary facilities to enable processing and communications to be restored as rapidly and cost effectively as possible. Once the Detailed Damage Assessment has been undertaken, it will be possible to develop several approaches to achieve this objective. The approaches will generally include compromises between the timeliness and the expense of the restoration of facilities. Before starting any salvage or restoration operations, Coolamon’s insurer should be consulted, as they may wish to send an insurance assessor to examine the site before anything is removed. Areas to be considered by Facilities and Plant Team include: Liaison with service provider on IT and disaster recovery requirements Safety of personnel working in the damaged location Security of information Removal of debris from the damaged location Secure disposal of debris - especially damaged printouts, tapes and discs Removal of heavy objects and/or fixtures from damaged Tagging/recording location of salvaged removed and remaining items Access to temporary lighting, flooring, facilities during removal and salvage Ensure the results of the Detailed Damage Assessment and reports from specialists/ suppliers for restoration/replacement of IT facilities are available for major components.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
