I’m Rich, I’ve Prospered, I Need Nothing

You may feel like that but if you don’t have an emergency plan for your organization or business, hold that thought.  Have you taken all the precautions to protect your investment?  Having insurance is not enough.  Planning for emergencies, disasters and interruptions to your business’ continuity is key toward your future success. Do you have an accurate risk assessment and do you monitor those hazards, the likelihood of their occurrence?  What are the vulnerabilities to people, your property and environment in which your operations occur? Does your prevention plan measure up?

Review your emergency management program.  If you don’t feel that confident about your emergency management program as you do about your station in life then you need to reconsider your station in life.
