Disaster Recovery: "What do we salvage?!"

Prioritizing what is to be salvaged after a disaster is a good idea; but it is no guarantee that it can be or will be salvaged. So, it is advisable to take precautions against damage tohigh-priority items beforehand.

Unique and/or valuable physical items and records should be stored in a manner to prevent loss due to theft, fire or water.

Important electronic records should be secured by a duplicate copy (in electronic or print format) which is stored off site.

Personal items that you would not want to lose in a work place disaster should be taken home.
