When it comes to emergency preparedness, the statistics are alarming. Research shows that nearly half of mission critical organizations in the U.S. do not have an emergency preparedness plan in place. Last year alone, 65% of these organizations had to rely on generator power for more than 12 hours but still, a third don’t have a guaranteed agreement to ensure the generators at their facility will have the necessary fuel. For mission critical industries, not having a dedicated plan in place for fuel supply poses incredible business continuity risks. This presentation will illustrate new primary market research and case study findings to reveal the vulnerabilities of the diesel fuel supply chain for backup power and uncover exactly where companies are lacking the proper infrastructure for emergency readiness. Participants will leave the presentation with tips that they can implement to enhance their business continuity plan and maintain 100% uptime, every time during power outages.
