New York Medical College helping businesses prepare for disasters

January 09, 2020

David Markenson“When a disaster occurs it puts at risk both businesses and their employees during the event. Those risks are to the employees, the leadership and the people they serve,” Markenson said, noting that the ability to maintain business operations can be an early casualty. “Without disaster preparedness you can’t have continuity of operations. You can have an event that really shuts them down for days, weeks, months. You can imagine the impact that will have on a business.”
