The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Disaster and Recovery Planning: A Guide for Facility Managers':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
Despite the title, and a number of the topics covered, this book seems to have more to do with business continuity than disaster planning. Chapter one does talk about disaster types (and lists not-so-recent disasters), and has a rough outline of basic parts of the planning process. Some US regulations that may influence plans are discussed in chapter two. Immediate emergency response is reviewed in chapter three. Chapter four talks about types of disasters again (and, again, the examples are fairly old). Fire protection and response, in chapter five, is very uneven in the level of detail, and concentrates heavily on technicalities in regard to exits. Bomb threat response, in chapter six, emphasizes searching techniques. Evacuations are covered in chapter seven. Chapter eight encompasses earthquakes, with the major emphasis being on structural design to prevent damage. Computer and data protection, in chapter nine, is poor and brief. Chapter ten is a simplistic look at power requirements. There is a set of generic loss prevention strategies in chapter eleven. Crisis planning, in chapter twelve, is primarily concerned with handling the media. Chapter thirteen, putting the plan together, is pedestrian, but reasonably comprehensive. The final chapter, on managing the recovery, is very thorough. For those new to business continuity planning, this book does provide some basic outlines and tips. But for those who have worked with disaster or continuity planning to any extent, there is nothing new here. copyright Robert M. Slade, 2002
