There never is and never will be a good time for a disaster to strike. Unplanned incidents that stop whole communities, including business, require a plan for recovery. The best way to handle disaster recovery is to know the possible ways it can affect your business and employees and then plan how you will work through the issues.
What A Disaster Stops
A disaster may stop everything in your community. The utilities, such as water and electric, might not function for days or even weeks. When electricity goes, safety features such as street lights do not function. Travel becomes difficult, if not impossible. Employees, unable to get to work, are not part of the recovery, even if there are functioning utilities there.
Get Going Again
The faster a recovery takes place, the better life is for all concerned, including businesses. Getting utilities and services back into place helps your business, your employees and the community. The best way to get started is having a plan to meet critical business needs. A detailed plan for likely disaster scenarios and recovery from them is the best defense.
Returning To Normal
Not every disaster allows life to return to normal within a few days or weeks. The ability to return to what was once normal helps. A disaster plan assists by taking the guesswork out of recovery. Looking at the worst that might happen, planning to get through it, gives a company or employee a sense of control. This control allows people to function, even in the face of a major disaster.
