Get ready Florence is coming! Some technology tips.

1 – Back up everything and carry backups with you.

2 – Unplug all your computer/network equipment including printers.

3 – Get everything off the floor. Put on table tops. 

4 – Cover and seal everything in trash bags. Make sure power is off.

5 – Shutdown servers. Cover them. 

6 – If your business could flood – take your server with you.  Do not ever have your backup and server in the same place.
