Those involved in emergency response and ARES leadership spend a lot of time teaching folks about disaster planning/response. For those involved the recent survey in British Columbia must be truly frustrating.
Keeping in mind the fires and flooding that have occurred in BC in 2017 BC Business Magazine commissioned the Mustel Group to contact businesses to see how prepared they were for a natural disaster. The results : 4 in 10 businesses THINK they have a plan six in ten have no formal or even informal plan.
Those businesses that were more prepared were in the interior where fires and flood activity has recently occurred. Might make one wonder if folks need to go through a crisis or disaster to learn why they need to be prepared.
