Emergencies become catastrophes when we’re not ready for them.
Here in South Florida, each year between June and November, we closely watch the satellite photos of swirling “disturbances” that peel off the west coast of Africa and head toward us. Many of them run out of steam or wander north or south, but occasionally one or two aim straight for us.
If (or rather, when) one hits us hard, will you be able to quickly recover? When a business is knocked out by a disaster, each day that it remains out of business decreases the chances that it will ever resume business. Therefore, your goal should be to recover as quickly as possible.
