Winter storm prompts Agility disaster recovery response
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (2/13/09)--Agility Recovery Solutions will host a webinar Feb. 25, “Best Practices for Recoveries Powered by Generators,” to provide credit unions with information about power-related disaster recovery. Agility recently helped 21 businesses in four states by providing generators after a winter storm cut their power in January. Power failure is one of the most likely scenarios of a business interruption, Agility said. During the storm, Agility provided generators to businesses in Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois and Florida. One business used a generator to open and provide community members with a free soup kitchen, wireless Internet and beds. Agility provides similar services to credit unions and also offers mobile office units, computer services and technology. The materials can be delivered to a site within 48 hours of a disaster, Agility said. “Agility restored organizations’ operations [after the winter storm] within 12 to 24 hours of receiving each disaster declaration,” said Bob Boyd, Agility president/CEO.
