Three Steps for Disaster Planning Toward a Smooth Recovery - Area Development
Forty percent of companies that experience a disaster never re-open according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Avoid being a statistic, or help other organizations you manage, by ensuring a disaster plan is in place.

There is no one-size-fits-all plan for disaster recovery, but there are some best practices that can guide you in your planning. When faced with a disaster, things get hectic and emotions take over. Without proper planning, the loss can be devastating.

Building Resilience – Six Lessons from Superstorm Sandy - Institute for Building Management
Superstorm Sandy forced people to abandon homes, offices, schools, stores and churches.
