If your place of business becomes nonoperational due to a disaster, it is not the time to be thinking about where you might temporarily set up or permanently relocate your shop. These options should be part of your disaster recovery plan, and when an event happens, you simply tell your team to, for instance, activate Plan A or B. With a well-planned and tested program, everyone will know what to do and will move into action.
Options should include shared space agreements with another business, such as a neighboring facility or partner, work-at-home plans (where possible and generally for short-term situations), or a mobile site. With a mobile site, you will have already discussed with your disaster recovery vendor the amount of space you need, as well as the type of office and computer equipment. With one call, you can activate the installation of a mobile facility.
