On the eve of National Disaster Preparedness month across the United States, San Francisco Bay Area residents were shaken from their beds when a 6.0 magnitude earthquake, the strongest in 25 years, rocked Napa on Sunday, August 24th, 2014.
Injuries were relatively minor; however, according to Glenn Pomeroy, the CEO of the California Earthquake Authority, the damage to Napa was “fairly significant.” 15,000 residents lost power with over 7,000 homes without power almost 24 hours later.
Residents in the San Francisco Bay Area are normally prepared for events like this. What about your small business? Are you ready for any type of disaster that may strike your business?

My philosophy when starting OTT was I wanted to create a place that I would want to work at (fun and friendly.) Where there was no corporate politics and we could just do our job fixing things and helping people. We can help people with their technology and not be arrogant or condescending to people. We can actually make a difference in peoples lives and not just say it but do it.
