We live in a world where the pace of business is 24/7/365. We also live in an uncertain world where anything can happen—be it the force majeure of Mother Nature or breaking your collarbone during a mountain bike ride.

Floods, blizzards, fires, and all manner of natural disasters prevent people from “reporting for duty” as usual.
