Expect the Unexpected—And Be Ready
If we have learned anything in the last year, it is that many events we thought of as unimaginable here in the United States are, in fact, possible. Shootings, riots, and civil unrest of the variety we have commonly associated with other, less-developed nations are occurring here with more frequency than most of us ever would have expected.
At Critical Path Solutions, it is our job to expect the unexpected. While our broad focus addresses natural disasters and domestic and foreign terrorist threats, a large segment of our clientele is comprised of commercial businesses.
Companies need to protect their employees, customers, assets, and data. The best way to do that is by creating a business disaster recovery plan. Certainly many businesses came face-to-face with disaster in 2020 in the form of financial ruin due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many people think it is not possible to predict such an event, but as disaster preparedness consultants, we know that we can — and should — have effective emergency response plans for epidemics, pandemics, and other health crises. These include saving and protecting lives but also making business emergency plans.
While every business should have a plan for continuity of operations, a small business disaster recovery plan is especially crucial. That’s because small businesses often do not have enough cash reserves to weather a lengthy emergency such as the one posed by COVID-19.
Your business emergency plan should include not just financial contingencies, but also a succession plan. Using COVID-19 as an example, your CEO could get sick and be incapacitated or unable to work for months or longer. You need to develop a succession strategy in which the continuity of leadership is clearly defined in order, much as it is for governments and monarchies.
For assistance with business disaster recovery plans, emergency response plans, natural disaster preparedness, active shooter training, fire evacuation plans, and all types of crises, contact the team at Critical Path Solutions. We will show you how to stay safe.
