SE Corporate urges teamwork in IDisaster Recovery JournalI
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (11/19/10)--Credit union and other private sector business continuity planners should build relationships with public sector emergency operations planners, according to a Southeast Corporate FCU executive writing in the fall issue of Disaster Recovery Journal. Ken Schroeder, vice president of business continuity for Southeast Corporate was author of the article, "Building a Partnership." Business continuity planners need to establish this cooperation before a disaster occurs to be sure the company's disaster plan aligns with that of community emergency planners, he wrote. The article provided several suggestions for building partnerships, as well as disaster plan exercises. "I have found that I really improved my own planning process at Southeast Corporate through partnerships, and credit unions can benefit from these types of partnerships as well," said Schroeder. He cited the example of establishing a relationship with a local bomb squad in Tallahassee, Fla. "When I met with the bomb squad, I was able to develop new procedures that aligned to the services our county would provide to Southeast Corporate. Our disaster recovery team now knows what to expect from the bomb squad, and the bomb squad knows what to expect from us. If I had not formed this partnership, my previous disaster procedures would not have worked in the event of an actual bomb threat." Disaster Recovery Journal is a publication that serves private and public employees working in the disaster management field. To view the article, use the resource link.
