Home Disaster Recovery Planning
Share
clear

Many businesses today assume that their workers will report to home in the event of a disaster at the corporate offices.  In fact, workers are already telecommuting or working full time in home offices.  The widespread implementation of broadband connectivity has made this possible.  In many cases corporate disaster recovery planning has not taken into account these home offices.

In this scenario, corporate disaster and home continuity planning has to include the home offices.  This, of course, supports individual safety, family safety as well as the corporate business processes.

FEMA, through its Ready program, has published check lists of preparedness items for home emergencies at www.ready.gov/research-publications.

Now is a good time to read through these and add those items you do not have to your home emergency kit.  here are some of the highlight checklist items:

 

  • 3 gallons of water per person
  • 3 day supply of food
  • Battery powered radio
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Tools to turn off utilities
  • Family emergency plan
  • Shelter-in-place
