Abstract:

This report presents the results of a study to evaluate organizational relocation planning by industry. The report provides two case history chronicles of these efforts, by a manufacturing industry and a service organization in two different high-hazard areas in California, to locate and establish suitable alternative sites in safer locations. Civil defense aspects were a primary consideration, but a multi-hazard approach that assessed a variety of emergency planning needs was an industry as well as program requirement. The final outcome is an integrated effort to prepare for hazards that could threaten to interrupt production and some innovative industrial concepts for survival products. Information on how both facilities plan to ensure economic survival, marshal critical resources, and protect industrial capability PIC in order to produce services or manufactured items within their capability and that might be needed through and after a major crisis is included.
