Are meteors in your BC plans or hazard vulnerability assessments?

To be honest, I have never given this much thought even though, yes, there have been meteors that have broken up from time to time around the world (Chelyabinsk meteor in Russia Feb 15, 2013).

But today did give me pause.

I got this from an Arizona client of ours this morning. Click on the link below to see the video. Impressive!

And the question is…did meteor a break up over the Arizona sky?  The next question might be…If the answers is yes…Should you add meteor impact to your business continuity plans or hazard vulnerability assessments????

What made it even more interesting for them is that they have had a variety of activations and issues over the past couple of weeks…and now this….a near miss?

Do you have meteor plans??? Just saying…

  1. Hi Regina
    Short answer, no. Longer answer: we don’t need to.
    Our BC planning adopts an all-risks approach and deals with the consequences of events rather than the events themselves. It doesn’t matter if the cause was meteor strike, asteroid hit, earthquake or the arrival of the four horsemen; the consequence is that key resources (people, premises, processes etc) that operate from the site are offline and need to be recovered elsewhere. (Note however, asteroid and the apocalypse are outside scope 🙂
    The only time we consider the cause is when determining the location of the recovery site: e.g. In the case of operations in earthquake zones. However, in this case we have multiple recovery sites as earthquake is low probability.

    1. Of course! The all-hazards plan works for 99.9% of all incidents! Thanks for the comment. Be well, Regina
