Business Continuity Plan (BCP)

Disaster Recovery Plan

VRC has a comprehensive disaster plan in place that is tested multiple times each year. This plan includes support for any customer records damaged in the event of a disaster. VRC’s disaster preparedness and recovery plan includes the following among many items:

  • Contracted access/use to helicopter for transporting records in the event roads are unavailable or closed.
  • VRC personnel have Emergency Management ID Badges that allow key personnel to move about in the event of martial law and/or curfews.
  • VRC conducts one or more “full” disaster drills per year involving all employees and support vendors.
  • VRC is contracted with multiple “recovery” vendors to handle smoke/water damage to records.
  • Emergency food and water for VRC® staff and families for up to 72 hours.
  • Portable satellite phone communications, multiple cellular vendors’ communications, radio communications, etc.
  • VRC’s racking system is bolted and braced to be earthquake “resistant”.
  • VRC is staffed 18 out of 24 hours each day, which means that personnel will most likely be on-site in the event of a disaster.
