The purpose of the Take 5 business continuity discussion topics is to engage employees and colleagues on your company's plan(s) to respond to potentially critical situations.  Take 5 minutes, once a month, to present the situation and gather the responses. These quick discussions can happen during a morning meeting, at the water cooler, during weekly correspondence via e-mail, or virtually anywhere.  Engage your employees on your organization's business continuity planning efforts and how they would respond to an emergency situation.

Make sure to check back each month as we will be releasing a new situation to discuss, or become a Partner of Safeguard Iowa and receive our Collaborative Corner.  Each month, the Take 5 discussion topic will be released within the newsletter.

October 2016 - Scenario 10


It’s 3:03 PM and a severe storm has just rolled through your community. School-aged kids were being dismissed from school when the eye of the storm went through town.

Discussion Questions:

  1. How would you react?
  2. Many employees have school-aged kids, has your company encouraged family preparedness initiatives?
  3. Do employees have a family communication plan?
  4. Have you identified safe areas for your family members to go during this situation?
