Planning for emergencies is a sensible precaution. We are faced with a variety of hazards that could cause an emergency for your business. Businesses that are poorly prepared to deal with an emergency, or the consequences of it, may not be able to stay in business. That potentially represents a significant economic loss, both personal and public.
