Personal Note from Julie: A Communication Plan is Key for Disaster Preparedness

Mar 13, 2014 | Career Development, Procedures, Resources


Last week, we kicked off our month-long discussion about disaster preparedness in an effort to help you be ready for the unexpected. This week, our focus is on creating an emergency communications plan that will help you stay connected in the event of a disaster.

Admins are often the ones responsible for taking care of the office — and getting it back up and running or setting up a remote office — when a disaster occurs. But if something happens that closes your office, such as a flood, hurricane or tornado, chances are the event will impact your home, too. This is why it’s important to have a communications plan for both your office and your home.

This week’s feature article below offers some tips on developing an emergency communications plan. You can also find additional resources and tips on our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages.

Supporting your administrative success,

Julie Perrine
