It seems that the everyday this summer there was another news report about a disaster – natural and not-so-natural. From bursting pipelines to hurricanes, each day we read and listened about people losing their homes, businesses, and the stress and chaos this creates.
Seems fitting then that President Obama declared September to be National Preparedness Month. Now we’ve written about National Preparedness Month before but it is worth emphasizing how important it is to get involved. As the declaration states, disasters and threats can come at any time and affect you everywhere – home and work. So do yourself a favor and visit:
- http://www.ready.gov/america/index.html - this site has excellent information for individuals and businesses
- http://citizencorps.gov/ – excellent resource to learn what you can do as an individual citizen
The American government is not the only institution who has made being prepared and protected as an nation-wide issue, the London Resilience Partnership has been created to prepare British citizens to be ready in the event of a disaster or threat. The London Resilience website: http://www.londonprepared.gov.uk/ is another excellent resource on why and how to be prepared.
All this points to the reality that you and I can’t hide from this anymore. We need to be protected and prepared. To this end, we at KingsBridge are doing our best to keep you up-to-date with the latest developments in the business continuity and disaster recovery planning space.
Next week we’ll be at the DRJ Fall World show in San Diego, California from Sept. 19 – 22. We’ll be showcasing our latest addition to the Phoenix line of software. This new addition to our industry-leading business continuity and disaster recovery planning software really will change the way you approach your plan development and management. The best thing you can do before stopping by booth #8 for a demo of our new software is to download Phoenix Mobile to your iPad or iPhone – use this free application – and be ready to give us some feedback. We want to know what you like and don’t like about our free business continuity and disaster recovery planning software.
After the DRJ Fall World show, we’re hitting the road and driving to Las Vegas. This trip is for a couple of very important reasons. You know about our involvement with the Nevada Cancer Institute and Plus 3 Networks – well, we like to see how the good works that our fundraising dollars are doing – so we’ll be making this a priority of our trip. As an extra bonus we’ll be taking in some cyclo-cross racing and the Interbike trade show as well. Our sponsored athlete, Vicki Thomas is racing at Cross Vegas so we’ll be out cheering her on and offering her race-day support.
All this to say, be sure to get yourself protected and prepared but remember to have some fun and get out there and soak up life!
