Having the necessary information readily available in the event of an emergency will save you time and stress!!

Keeping the basic information that is vital to your computer network is key in having a quick reaction in the event of an emergency. If there was a power outage would you know who to call? What if your phone system crashed? How about your data, is it currently being backed up? Is your tape being taken offsite? These are all questions you should be asking yourselves on days like today.
