Environmental risks, which could include derailed or overturned chemical tankers,blizzards, hurricanes, tornados, sink holes (save the Corvettes!), earthquakes, mudslides, forest fires.

A solid crisis management organization, coupled with a realistic, exercised business continuity plan is vital to ensure continued operations.
