September is National Preparedness Month

September 2010 is the seventh annual National Preparedness Month. This year will focus on encouraging Americans to work together to take concrete actions toward emergency preparedness. We are encouraging all Americans to join the readiness team and truly help themselves, their neighbors, and their communities be Ready.

Is your business prepared?  When did you last test a restore from your backups?  Do you have backups off site?  On site backups protect you from computer hardware failures, but not from fire or flood.

Besides computer issues, are you prepared in these areas:

  • Fire Safety Evacuation plan – Fire Extinguisher usage procedures
  • AED locations and usage/procedures
  • CPR and Chocking instructions
  • Tornado (shelter in place) plan
  • Safe Room – supplies list
Each of these items have specific procedures and supply type items that are applicable.
Plan to stay in business is a website with details on this and more.
