Disasters strike without warning, and the difference between a minor setback and a catastrophic blow to your business often hinges on the robustness of your disaster response plan. Here’s a quick guide to creating a plan that stands up to the unexpected:

  1. Risk Assessment: Identify potential emergencies and their impact on your operations.
  2. Critical Processes: Pinpoint essential business functions and the resources they require.
  3. Communication Plan: Establish clear lines of communication for staff and emergency services.
  4. Evacuation Procedures: Map out safe and accessible evacuation routes.
  5. Data Protection: Secure your digital infrastructure with backups and recovery plans.
  6. Employee Training: Regularly train your team on emergency protocols.
  7. Restoration Partnership: Align with restoration experts like SERVPRO of Wood River Valley to ensure quick recovery.
