Why prepare early?

An interview excerpt with Jeff Chester, Vice President

Interviewer: Why should I prepare for a disaster ahead of time?

Jeff Chester: Well, you know if you don’t prepare for a disaster you have a disaster before the disaster strikes. Risk management is all about minimizing your exposure to potential danger and to potential cost. We try to help each facility, each community, each hotel and each commercial business to weather the storm and reduce business loss. Business continuity is very important to being profitable and taking care of your staff, residents or employees is even more important.
