Subject: Help Desk Alert: Fire Drill Today! Did You Take Your Laptop With You?
Alert: In a building evacuation, it’s critical that you take your laptop with you for Business Continuity purposes.
We had a building-evacuation fire drill today, and the Help Desk staff observed that only about 1/10 (at most) staff had a laptop outside with them. Of course not everyone has a laptop, but a large percentage does… While we know that this was a drill only, it’s important that everyone form one important habit: if you’re leaving the building, your laptop should come with you. This would allow us to continue doing business should we lose access to our facility for any period of time.
Please consider this in the next drill, or if we have a real evacuation at any time.
