People do not like to think about natural or manmade disasters as part of their personal future and businesses are the same as people. Planning for recovery from disasters presents unique issues in an increasingly complex world as we consider varied types of problems. Think about these matters because unfortunately, a disastrous day comes sometime for us all.
There are over 118,000 emergency calls made each day in the U.S. on wireless telephones that were essentially non-existent six years ago. This is only a third of all daily emergency telephone calls. These calls are made to ask for help for the heart attack victim who collapses every 3.3 minutes, to call for medical assistance on the highway where 5.2 million people were injured and 42,000 U.S. citizens died last year in automobile accidents, and because of strokes that happen every 53 seconds to someone in America. People have problems on the factory, office, or kitchen floor, and on the road.
