What’s your pandemic disaster plan? May 23, 2006

Last Wednesday and Thursday I attended statewide meetings with other I.T. managers from across Kentucky. The first meeting was for people serving on a disaster recovery/business continuity (DR/BC) committee for higher education. The second day was a day-long meeting that included some discussion and planning for DR/BC.

After the usual and more common disasters were brought up, like power outages, fire, tornados, floods, and earthquakes, someone mentioned the ā€œPā€ word: Pandemic. This was the first time that someone suggested a pandemic could really happen or that we should make a plan for dealing with a pandemic as a real threat. But, what does that really mean? What can you expect in a pandemic and what is the likelihood of it happening?

Good questions, all. I recommend going to this web site to answer some or most of those questions. It not only answers those questions, it also provides many check lists for how to prepare for it so your home, business, or organization can continue and even survive a pandemic. If you want to hear about it first hand, there is a workshop coming up in Chicago that specifically addresses disaster recovery and business continuity in the event of a pandemic.

Tomorrow, I will post what one Kentucky CFO said he would do if a pandemic broke out and it impacted their business. It’s not so much a business continuity plan as it is a personal disaster plan. In fact, I’ve come to know it as “An Old Fashioned Kentucky Disaster Recovery Plan.” I’ll post a picture of the plan, which will be better than writing about it. Check back tomorrow to see what I mean.

Hello — Are you available to chat about this post? I’m interested in learning how pandemic planning is being received. This post was interesting, particularly on this point …. “This was the first time that someone suggested a pandemic could really happen or that we should make a plan for dealing with a pandemic as a real threat. But, what does that really mean? What can you expect in a pandemic and what is the likelihood of it happening?”

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
