50% of businesses that sustain a loss of computer data or major catastrophic loss like flood, fire, or explosion, never re-open for business.
65% of small and medium sized businesses are located in regions susceptible to natural disasters.
While our region is not usually prone to tornadoes and hurricanes, recent weather patterns have indicated a shift for our region. And, we have always had problems with flooding in the Delaware Valley.
Realizing that our economy rests on the strength of small and medium sized businesses to survive disasters, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the adoption of the final standards for the “Voluntary Private Sector Preparedness Accreditation and Certification Program,” or the PS-Prep program for short.
The PS Prep program encourages all small and medium businesses to create an Emergency Preparedness Plan.
By entering detailed information into an Emergency Preparedness Plan before an event occurs, you can minimize business interruption.
Businesses that have a disaster preparedness plan — and implement it — typically have less damage, loss and downtime than those that do not.
A business disaster preparedness plan should include measures to protect the organization’s staff, building, data and inventory during a damaging event. It’s critical to plan for continuing operations if the worst happens and the main business premises are unusable due to disaster damage.
A plan typically includes a pre-identified site where the business can temporarily relocate; means to retrieve data, including employee, customer and vendor records; and a method for operating effectively with a smaller staff of key individuals.
