Thanks. Recovery costs far less when one is prepared.
This part is counter-intuitive – preparing for four disasters only costs slightly more than preparing for one. Why? Because so much of the planning is disaster independent.
Closure because of bombing, flood, fire or earthquake are all basicaly the same. Plan for the earthquake to become prepared for bombing, flood or fire.
Same for snow storm and hurricane.
