Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 01, 2013
Carpet One Floor & Home, North America’s leading floor covering retailer, has recently partnered with Agility Recovery, a disaster recovery firm and business continuity planner, to provide essential resources to its independent members in the event of a disaster or emergency hardship.
Agility Recovery will provide Carpet One Floor & Home stores with access to electrical power, communications and computer systems throughout an emergency time period. Agility has the experience and connections necessary to provide the tools needed for a business to get back up and running after a disaster strikes.
In addition to this partnership, Carpet One Floor & Home has created a Disaster Preparedness Guide for its members, complete with instructions on storing data, protecting employees and giving back to the community in which it serves during a severe crisis.
“Providing assistance to our members and communities when they need it is something we take very seriously,” said Eric Demaree, President of Carpet One Floor & Home “We have put this partnership and guide together to help our stores recover fast and serve as an essential resource for their community in a time of need.”
Agility Recovery has been in the business of providing assistance to public entities for over 24 years. Their expertise in delivering innovative products and affordable recovery services to companies is among the best in its industry. In addition to providing key resources and connections, Agility assists in creating unique emergency plans and options for individual businesses to recover depending on their specific community circumstances.
“At Agility, we believe that every business, community and family should be prepared for a disaster,” said Bill Boyd, Chairman of Agility Recovery. “But without access to the proper planning tools and resources, most businesses are helpless against unforeseen events. In our 24 year history, Agility has rescued 1000’s of businesses and never failed. Preparation is the key to success. Carpet One Floor & Home is the ideal partner to help us carry this message forward.”
