DOCUMENT DISASTERS BIG + SMALL

In 2007 (typically while I was away from the office for a week) we had a substantial water leak in one of our store rooms. Luckily apart from ruined paintwork and smelly carpets there was no damage to the collection.  In 2009 it happened again, and because we did not write down what happened in 2007, holes were recut into ceilings and money was re-spent when it was not necessary. In 2010 the leak happened for a third time, easily 10 litres of water came out of the ceiling - but this time I had documented the previous encounters and we could quickly get the problem seen to and as this seemed to becoming a yearly occurrence I got the air-conditioning men to tell me the precise problem. Its probably going to happen again (one of the joys of being housed in an 8 storey building)  but  now I have documentation of the disasters, an annual reminder in my calendar and have added the Disaster Documentation to our Disaster Preparedness Plan.

DOCUMENT, DOCUMENT, DOCUMENT - It so very important.
