Business Continuity: A Plan Worth Preparing

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

Director Carmen Lorentz, Director Perry Plummer

Once a month – at 3:05 pm every third Wednesday – NH Economy hosts New Hampshire Business Matters on WTPL-FM 107 (through the sponsorship of Sugar River Bank). Guests of Director Carmen Lorentz include business leaders who speak about highlights, trends and resources available to help their industries grow and prosper.

This month, Perry Plummer, director of State Homeland Security and Emergency Management, came on the air waves to talk about preparedness in when business is disrupted in events like storms, power outages and even illness.

Being prepared for the things you may think will never happen to you is important. Why? About 40 percent of businesses never reopen after a disaster.

It’s worth a listen to this month’s program, especially to find out more information about the new app debuting next month – NH Alert. Our website also has information about preparing your business continuity plan.
