Crisis Resource Center

The NECA Crisis Resource Center was developed to address a growing need for resources for preparing for and responding to events that represent a crisis for NECA members. Contractors face many challenges when natural or man-made disasters strike, causing significant disruptions and loss. This resource page will provide guidance for identifying and managing risk, developing emergency response & business continuity plans, and provides various resources to aid in preparing for a crisis event. In addition to resources for preparedness, this page will provide important information for members currently experiencing a crisis event by providing access to relief funding and various levels of support to help NECA contractors get back onto their feet quickly.
