When disaster strikes, are you prepared?

Just a couple of weeks ago Southern California experienced another tremor. While it obviously rattled folks there, the repercussions were relatively mild. But Mother Nature sure is busy this summer. How about the hurricanes hammering the Southeast? Or the floods that drowned the fields of the Midwest not too long ago? Or Hurricane Katrina in '05?Disaster planning is crucial for so many businesses such as restaurants. Combined with a sputtering economy, the food supply is facing unprecedented challenges. How will the restaurant industry conquer these challenges?I encourage you to register for the National Restaurant Association's webinar, Bringing Emergency Preparedness to Communities. The online session begins tomorrow at 2 p.m. Eastern Time. Learn how American Dietetic Association and the National Restaurant Association Quality Assurance Study Group are collaborating to help restaurants and their communities prepare for not just natural disasters but also fires, outbreaks and other accidents.How does your operation handle unforeseen events? Do you have a business continuity plan in place? How often do you revisit or revise it?
