I want to thank all the readers for all of the great ideas and feedback you have provided during the month
So far this week you have addressed:
But as anyone who does incident handling knows, any incident you are familiar with or have planned
Which brings us to today's question...containing other incidents?
Reader Scott sent in this insightful comment...
"As I was reading the article on containing other incidents, I was reminded of some advice pertaining to facility disaster plans. Do not create plans for every conceivable disaster. You could fill the library of congress with disaster plans for each disaster and still not cover all possibilities. Instead, create specific plans for disasters with high likelihood and create a general disaster plan to cover the unanticipated. In the general plan you must include reminders of specific unique attributes to your facilities so disaster commanders can make the snap decisions required. Write your plans for your successor, not yourself. You do plan to move on to bigger and better things, Right?"
