The Fleming Companies Now Offering Disaster Recovery
Powering Your Business, Before and After The Storm
Good Disaster Recovery plans will keep your company up and running through interruptions of any kind: power failures, IT system crashes, natural disasters, supply chain problems and more.
Disaster Recovery planning helps organizations prepare for disruptive events—whether those events include a tornado or simply a power outage caused by a backhoe in the parking lot. The Fleming Companies involvement in this process can range from supplying stand-by Emergency Generator Set-ups, Temporary lighting, providing a temporary security badging and camera system, Equipment Start-ups and constructing substations for utility companies that are safe, warm, lit power stations to put Disaster Recovery plans into action during an emergency.
Both Fleming locations are right in the middle of tornado country, which means we are used to keeping an eye on the weather and know how important it is to have a business continuity plan that is resilient in the event of a damaging storm, particularly in the spring, when tornadoes are most common in this part of the U.S. The Midwest and the Central Plains of North America see more tornadoes each year than any other part of the world.
Businesses in tornado alley have much in common with those in hurricane areas, the key difference is Tornadoes have smaller funnels that can appear in groups. These may feature dramatically higher winds, and can strike with far less warning than a major hurricane typically provides. Good Disaster Recovery planning must take those differences into account in everything from employee and facility safety to network uptime.
