Most businesses likely have an emergency plan in place for the physical safety of employees, clients and site visitors should a disaster, such as a fire or flooding occur. In fact, many industries are required to adhere to OSHA standards.
While appropriate fire safety and building codes are important and taken seriously, many business managers fall short when considering the effect of a natural disaster on their day-to-day operations. A majority of small to mid-sized businesses fail to have an operational emergency preparedness plan in place should disaster strike.
Whether a flood, hurricane, tornado or fire strikes a place your business, you should prepare for the worst. Those that do not may NEVER recover from the disaster. Something as simple as a burst pipe or downed power line could short circuit your data center.
What is your contingency plan if your business goes off-line?
A business could be badly hurt if its operations are out of commission for even a short period. What would happen if your operation site is permanently or severely damaged?
You can minimize disruption by having a business contingency plan that includes things such a continuous off-site backup of data, applications and server images; re-routing incoming calls to alternative site, emergency posting on your website and arrangements in advance for an emergency operations command center.
Another thing to consider is having the right type of insurance and getting employees involved so that you are all on the same page. Communications with suppliers and customer is vital for retaining and maintaining business.
