Records administrators at the federal, state, and local levels of government are faced with many unique challenges. Among the most critical is the balance between preserving the legacy of paper documents and meeting the requirements of electronic records management. Unfortunately, government agencies are not immune from calamitous events such as fires and floods, which can jeopardize the integrity of their critical documents.
Government records administrators who are best prepared for unforeseen disasters, such as fires and floods, have emergency preparedness plans in place. An essential part of those plans is the name of and contact information for a reputable document recovery specialist with a proven record of recovering both paper documents and electronic media. Researching document recovery firms in advance can accelerate the recovery process, reduce costs, and minimize disruption to critical government services after an emergency.
