In the last year alone, this country has had more than its share of natural disasters—floods, wildfires, hurricanes and tornadoes have wreaked havoc on homes and businesses. Human error and malfeasance account for immeasurable workplace disruptions as well.

Few companies take the time to instate a comprehensive business continuity plan that fully covers emergency preparedness in the event of a natural disaster, or other major business disruption.
