Whether your business is large or small and has 1 or 1000 employees, the basics of business preparedness and continuity still apply. The Los Alamos County Office of Emergency Management and our Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) would like Los Alamos businesses to be aware of the need to plan for both disaster recovery and business continuity.
Probably the easiest way to get your business on the path to readiness is to visit www.ready.gov and click on the “Ready Business” link there. From there you will find information and downloads that address these important issues: staying in business, protecting your investment, protecting your employees, determining whether to evacuate or shelter-in-place, emergency plans, business continuity of operations planning (COOP), and much more.

Pandemics cause major economic losses due to absenteeism. Up to 30% of the workforce will either miss work due to sickness or stay home due to fear. The economic impact of H5N1 will be felt around the world. The impact will initially appear in two primary aspects of business: Availability of the workforce, and impact in and on the market place. This is different than business or emergency plans that largely assume destruction of physical infrastructure due to natural or human-caused disaster. How will business and governments keep operating with 30% of their workforce unavailable over the course of months or even several years? http://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/
