Business tips and tools help speed disaster recovery

A disaster, such as a fire or earthquake, can disrupt your business without warning — sometimes at great cost. Being prepared can help you restore operations faster and limit your losses.
 
You’ll find the basics outlined in our four-minute video, “Emergency Preparedness for Businesses,” at sdge.com/bizplan. Steps you should take include: developing a written plan; training staff; practicing emergency procedures; stocking emergency supplies; maintaining defensible space; backing up and storing information securely offsite; and periodically testing equipment such as electric generators and smoke detectors.
 
For tools you can use to develop or improve a disaster preparedness program for your business, visit ready.gov/business. You’ll find an automated disaster recovery plan tool in the business continuity planning software, and a series of business continuity training videos.
