What would happen if a windstorm hit your plant and shut you down temporarily? Or how about a lightning strike that destroys your computer network? Who would you call? How would you get back in operation? Would you have the right kind of insurance?
These are the kinds of questions that are best answered PRIOR to the actuality of a fire, tornado, or flood devastating a company. Yet, ask any small businessperson if they have planned for this type of plant closure, and 99% of the time the answer is no, and the primary reason is lack of time.
In mid 2000, Printing Industries of Ohio • N.Kentucky's (now Graphic Media Alliance) Board of Directors determined that a program was needed to help the membership plan and deal with disaster recovery. This publication is the result of the Printing Industries of Texas Disaster Recovery Committee and has been modified with their permission to meet the needs of our Association's members. We hope that you make the best use of it, and if nothing else keep it handy – just in case.
