Preparedness Measures – Value of “Mental Rehearsal”

Exemplary Corporate Disaster Preparedness — Waffle House

The article is titled How FEMA Uses Waffle House To Measure Disasters, and you may already have heard that Craig Fugate, FEMA Administration, has devised an index that includes whether or not the Waffle House restaurants are open. But I think the more important point of the story is the exemplary corporate disaster preparedness steps taken by Waffle House – the degree to which the corporate headquarters of Waffle House has taken steps to be prepared for disasters and to ensure the continuity of their operations.

I think that all organizations, including Houses of Worship, can learn some important lessons from the anticipatory steps the corporate chain has implemented.
