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.

May 2016 - Scenario 5


It is late spring and your area has been experiencing devastating thunderstorms over the last few weeks. At 2:54 PM, the local outdoor warning siren has been activated and can be heard within your facility.

Discussion Questions:

  1. How would you react?
  2. What triggers your local jurisdiction to activate the outdoor warning sirens?
  3. What is your company policy regarding responding to the sirens being activated?
  4. What action would you take?
