For Immediate Release
May 30, 2017, Rockville, MD – Veirs Insurance, an independent property, casualty, life and surety agency serving the Greater Washington, DC Metro Area, has concluded a partnership agreement with Continuity Dynamics, Inc., a national risk and disaster preparedness firm, to deliver solutions to complement their clients’ Disaster Recovery data backup with Business Continuance Planning. This cost effective, yet essential, solution will be powered by software of the international firm, Stay In Business.
Clifton Veirs Agency President, Chip Veirs, announced the partnership today from their office in Rockville, MD. Mr. Veirs stated, “Most companies have Insurance and Disaster Recovery backup plans to protect their assets and personnel; however, few actually have Business Continuity Plans that can help them prepare for events to remain in business at time of disaster. Disaster events could be as simple as power outages, road closure, poor weather or other common daily events that shut down businesses. The solutions of our new partners, Continuity Dynamics and Stay In Business, are perfect for our clients.”
Ralph Petti, MBCI, CBCP, GRCP and President of Continuity Dynamics mentioned that “industry leaders like the Veirs Insurance truly care about their clients. They make the effort to educate their clients to help ensure that they are doing everything that they can to minimize their risk. We are proud to include our software partner, Stay In Business, and are committed to delivering critical planning on a cost-effective basis – especially to the small and medium sized businesses of Veirs Insurance.”
FEMA and the SBA each concur that the effects of a lack of Business Continuity Planning are devastating.
“As many as 40% to 60% of all small-medium businesses never recover after being affected by a disaster and another 25% fail within just one year if they are not prepared. This is a key area of focus.”
