Are you initiating a dialogue with your clients about emergency preparedness for such events as a natural disaster, act of terrorism or disease outbreak?

What strategies and/or environmental modifications are you integrating into your client’s plan?

What strategies and/or environmental modifications do you have in place for yourself? For your family?

The above examples are extreme, although, preparing for potential events such as a fire or loss of power is equally important. I wrote an article about this a few years ago–you can read my thoughts here:
