Presentation to Cover Disaster Planning and Disaster Recovery Lessons for Facility Managers

For Immediate Release
May 4, 2009

HOPKINTON, MA – Gerard E. McGonagle, General Manager of BELFOR Property Restorations’ Boston Operations Center, will present at the June annual conference of Northeast Buildings and Facilities Management (NEBFM). The event will take place June 10 –11 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, Boston, MA.

“Disaster planning is a topic nobody wants to discuss,” said McGonagle. “A facility does not need to be located near the Gulf of Mexico to be vulnerable to intense weather or human error. Both natural and man-made disasters can result in significant property damage, business interruption, and bad publicity. Especially in these challenging economic times, no facility manager can afford to ignore the need to plan ahead to minimize disaster impact.”

McGonagle, who is a Certified Restorer and Water Loss Specialist as well as a board member of the Boston Chapter of the Indoor Air Quality Association, will provide conference participants with a disaster planning guide as well as disaster recovery case studies.

“There are some basic steps that all facility managers should take to ensure that they are prepared should the worst happen,” said McGonagle. “My presentation will arm them with what they need to plan ahead, as well as how to respond if an event occurs.”

Members of the media are invited to attend McGonagle‘s presentation. Copies of his presentation are also available upon request.
