Planning for Disaster Recovery
Disaster planning and recovery is something that no organization ever wants to put into action but is so critical to protecting staff and resources in the event of an incident. Creating business continuity and disaster recovery plans and establishing emergency guideline procedures are a few of the things that organizations can do to prepare for an emergency situation. In addition to the preparation of plans during a disaster, the steps an organization takes after a disaster, especially concerning its staff, can determine its ability to continue on.

The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education continues to build on the disaster recovery foundation created in the agency many years ago. This is an inter-agency effort that results in continuous review and update, despite challenges that have occurred in higher education.

Sarah Kimball
Sarah is the Safety, Health, and Environmental Manager for the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. Her responsibilities include disaster recovery coordination, business continuity, and health and safety planning. In addition to agency responsibilities, she also assists state higher ed. institutions with their health and safety programs and conducts in-door air quality assessments for schools.

Before accepting the position at OSRHE last January, she was a science and math teacher in Oklahoma City metro area schools for fourteen years. She is currently finishing a Master’s degree in Industrial Hygiene/Environmental Health Sciences at the University of Oklahoma. She resides in Midwest City and has three children, Alex, Roshan, and Lauren.
