52 Tips for Business Continuity
#25 – June 21, 2017
Business or Family – Have a Disaster Plan!
Do you have a personal or family disaster plan?
At FIBERTOWN, we specialize in Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity, but having a disaster plan prepared for your family is equally as important.
- Where will your family meet if you can’t get home?
- Who’s the emergency contact?
- What will you do with the pets?
For hurricanes and many other types of disasters, a good source is Ready.gov – an official website of the Department of Homeland Security. The website contains hurricane preparedness information as well as a useful countdown checklist to use as the storm approaches.

Convenience and Security – Outside Danger’s Path
Most people understand that a catastrophic hurricane or flood is dangerous. What many don’t realize is the aftermath can be fatal to your business. A severe event may cause the loss of power and water for weeks – or even months – as well as disrupt supply chains, transportation, and communications.
FIBERTOWN’s facilities and expertise allow you to focus on your operations without worrying about security, power, cooling, connectivity or the hurricane forming in the Gulf.
Before the storm hits, transfer operations to FIBERTOWN’s Business Continuity Campus in Bryan and never miss a beat. We have over 30,000 sf of dedicated, disaster-recovery office space waiting for you.
