If Disaster Hits Your Business, Will It Die?

None of us like to think about a disaster hitting our business.

But the reality is that it could happen.

There’s nowhere in the world where we can get away from weather disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, fires, floods and lightning storms, to name a few. Even if you do live in paradise (where is that?), there’s always the chance that your technology could decide to stop working.

Ever had a panicky moment with a green screen of death on your computer? I have. It wasn’t a pretty.

And if your business is home based, you could lose both your home and your business in one swoop — in a single disaster. Oh, the horror!

So that means you need to be ready.

Visit the Mobile Apps Gallery to find government apps and mobile websites on a variety of topics.

Here are just a few of the many apps you'll find:
Tornado - If a tornado warning is issued for your location, an alarm will sound, even when the app is closed. (available for iPhone and Android)
CDC Mobile App - Get timely health information. (available for iPad and Android)
