Houston Disaster Recovery Tech Tip #3

by Yehuda Cagen 15. June 2010 11:11


We see and hear warnings for Hurricane Season on television, radio, in newspapers, and even on bulletin boards. For some people, these messages have become so commonplace; we’ve begun to ignore them.


We’ve seen the value of disaster planning. Unfortunately, we’ve also seen the drawbacks of not planning. That’s why we’re offering our clients and friends the following suggestions on how to prepare…before a disaster occurs:

 Step 1: Equipment Storage

·         Elevate Electronic Equipment (Triple E Action)

·         Secure Electrical Wires

Step 2: Power Alternatives

·         Install Battery Backup System (This should only be used as a temporary use of power; for a graceful shutdown of your computer.)

·         Generators. Gas tanks & cans should be full of gas. (As long as you have electricity (and Internet), you have access to your IsUtility® service. Remember to save your data frequently as gas can run out without notice.)

Step 3: Protection of Electronic Items

·         Surge protectors (only useful for power surges)

·         Turn OFF all electronic Items during any storm and unplug them!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our disaster recovery specialists.
