Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planning

As wildfires raged through Northern CA during October 2017, many communities in the Sonoma and Napa counties were unprepared for the conflagration that destroyed homes, businesses, hotels and wineries. It is estimated that over 20,000 people were displaced, more than 3,000 homes destroyed and critical services at some hospitals and health care facilities were impacted during the fire.

Some Communication Strategies clients such as Redwood Credit Union are giving back to their community by partnering with the RCU Community Fund, Inc., The Press Democrat, and Senator Mike McGuire to accept financial donations to assist with fire victims and aid relief efforts.

Other clients have reached out to the Com-Strat team to discuss Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planning.
