Disaster Lists

The purpose of this tool is to demonstrate the need for Business Continuity Planning. The incidence and magnitude of disasters are increasing every year in more and more cities. Business, Government, Schools and other organizations can not afford to neglect the importance of planning for emergencies and interruptions. These emergencies can include:

  • Natural Disasters
  • Man Made Disasters
  • Acts of Terrorism
  • Pandemics
  • Denial of Access to Facilities
  • Forced Evacuation of Employees, Students and Visitors
  • Destruction of company assets (Facility, Records, Electronic Data, Communications capabilities, etc.)
  • Workplace, School or Church violence

Every year many disasters happen worldwide. We found a representative list of Natural and Man-made Disasters, as well as Workplace and School Violence.
