If disaster strikes, your business will lose time and money if you are not prepared.

  • Develop Your Plan
    Use the National Fire Administration Association publication, Standard on Disaster / Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs (NFPA 1600), to develop your plan. It "provides the necessary guidance to effectively coordinate and manage the widely varying community resources that mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters and emergencies."(1) Order your copy from NFPA
  • Get to Know Your Building
    "Getting to know your building may best be handled by conducting a walk-through inspection of the building and its systems, including the HVAC, fire protection, and life-safety systems. During this inspection, compare the most up-to-date design drawings available to the operation of the current systems."(2)


    Take Steps to Protect Against a Terrorist Attack
    "There are steps that businesses can take to protect against and minimize the effects of a terrorist attack. In addition to planning for emergencies, some modifications of physical buildings can provide additional protection for building occupants."(3)
