McGill University’s Water Main Break – Reminder: Conduct Regular Situation Assessments

When McGill University had to cancel classes due to a water main break recently, it reminds all of us of the importance of being prepared for such an infrastructure crisis. While most organizations conduct table-top exercises for major disasters even an infrastructure problem can become a major media issue.

When contemplating and planning for table-top exercises a comprehensive situational assessment review is essential. Doing a campus “walk-about” with key managers dealing with infrastructure issues on a daily basis is a prudent idea. Reviewing past concerns and issues and budgets for planned maintenance is also advisable. Don’t forget to review those areas where budgets have been eliminated or reduced as well.
