Planning for Disaster

Anticipating the Unthinkable: Creating a Document Disaster Plan

If you live or work in a flood-prone area and have books, documents, prints or other materials in your location, disaster planning will dramatically increase your chances of future recovery. An off-site location for your disaster plan is imperative. In addition, those tasked with executing the plan should be provided with copies. Taking these simple steps now can make all the difference if the worst happens.

Create a Disaster Plan and Make it Available

Once paper has become water-soaked, mold and mildew can grow and begin to spread within 48 hours. At the beginning of this presentation we stressed that Time is of the Essence. Having a plan in place now that can be quickly and efficiently executed if the need arises can make the difference between full recovery and complete loss of valuable books and documents.
