I am writing this message the day after strong storms rolled through the Triangle with tornadoes likely.
This is prime time for the Facility Management Professional. Without missing a beat, or hesitating, the FM readjusts priorities to meet the potential threat, all the while proactively communicating with management and fellow co-workers that all is in place to anticipate the worst, while hoping for the best. Once any serious danger has passed for personnel first and then the facility, the FM rolls out a recovery plan to return all to normal operations while placing the needed resources for clean-up and repairs.
It is so rewarding to be a part of a profession that has such a significant role at a crisis moment!
