Calamities such as natural disasters, fires, terrorist attacks, and human error can easily disrupt normal business operations to the point that the a business must close its doors forever. For example, statistics show that of companies that have experienced a major loss of computerized records, 43% never reopen, 51% close within two years, and only 6% survive long-term. Planning in advance for such a loss dramatically increases your chances of surviving and resuming normal operations.

In the event of a biological attack, public health officials may not immediately be able to provide information on what you should do. It will take time to determine exactly what the illness is, how it should be treated, and who is in danger. However, you should watch TV, listen to the radio, or check the Internet for official news including the following:
