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.

March 2016 - Scenario 3


It’s a normal workday at your facility and at 1:37 PM the fire alarms start to go off throughout the building.

Discussion Questions:

  1. How would you react?
  2. Do you know the evacuation plan?
  3. Do you know where the rally point is?
  4. For accountability, day-to-day do you know which employees are at work?
