Donor Network West (DN West / DNW) performs life-saving functions and will strive to maintain business operations under all circumstances. At the same time, the safety of our employees, volunteers and individuals providing services is of paramount importance.

Although it is impossible to anticipate every situation that impacts the organization's ability to maintain day-to-day business operations, this document aims to provide guidelines and basic principles to be followed in all types of emergency situations.
