Rescuing Business Records:A Disaster Planning Guide for Small Businesses -- Electronic Download


Released October 2009
Full color. 34 pages.

Rescuing Business Records details the records that will help a small business survive a disaster and rebuild in the aftermath. 

Each manual includes:

  • a checklist of records, with space for recording whether and where the record is duplicated;
  • various options for duplicating and protecting records, and the pros and cons of each;
  • a discussion about why certain records may need to be certified; and
  • a brief introduction to caring for records.

The books’ author, David Carmicheal, is the State Archivist for Pennsylvania and led CoSA’s nationwide effort to better protect essential records after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. “As I talked to people who live in hurricane- and tornado-prone areas, they ask me what records their family should protect in the event of a disaster. Their concerns led to the first manual. The manual for small business seemed a natural outgrowth from that.”
