Is It That Time Again Already?
June 6, 2018
Graduations, weddings, and beach trips. These mark the transition from spring to summer. And, if you live along the Gulf Coast, hurricanes. Before the June page is even visible on our calendars, meteorological disturbances lurk in the increasingly warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Meteorology is a good thing, most of the time, but disturbances are rarely positive. Especially when they upset the flow and growth of your business.
The Certainty of Uncertainty
We can debate the human impact on climate change, but evidence suggests that the climate is changing and the weather is following suit. So as bad as weather pattern prediction has been in the past, it is only going to get worse, making it even more important to incorporate disaster preparedness into your business planning for the future.
Standards established by the Disaster Recovery Institute International guide our time-tested methods of anticipating a natural or political disaster and strategic recovery from damage incurred as a result of such a disaster. Our proven planning protocols enable your business or organization to resume operations at planned levels of service following virtually any interruption. Planning includes:
- Formalizing a backup and recovery strategy
- Selecting alternate facilities when necessary
- Planning for resumed operations at alternate facilities
- Aligning and communicating with vendors
- Training staff on all procedures and protocols
