Benjamin Franklin must have spent a decent amount of time thinking up quotes because this one is great: “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” Everyone would likely agree that this is sound advice, but there’s one thing that people seem to rarely prepare for – natural disasters.
It’s just one of those things people don’t think about until a natural disaster has occurred. For instance, Zobrio’s main office is in St. Louis, MO, which is situated only 166 miles away from the New Madrid Fault Line. In 2014 the USGS (United State Geological Survey) published a report warning that Midwestern states are at a high risk for a larger and more powerful earthquake then the 8.0 magnitude earthquake that occurred in 1812. That one infamously reversed the flow of the Mississippi River.
So is your organization prepared for a potential earthquake that could rock the Midwest more violently then it did in 1812? Is anybody?
Realistically, the type of disaster most companies in St Louis fear are floods, tornados, or violent thunderstorms. Which begs the question… Are most organization even prepared for that?
