LINCOLN - Chris Baker has been working
with the Logan County Board’s Safety Committee to create a Disaster
Preparedness Plan for the Logan County offices. Baker explained to
Logan County Board members on Tuesday, Aug.19th evening at the
Regular meeting of the board that this plan, along with a new
technical support plan, will keep the county prepared in case there
is an emergency and important data would be inaccessible or lost.
Logan County was told in recent years by the Department of
Justice that they need to create such a plan. Baker said that the
plans that have been created should satisfy the DoJ requirements and
help the county in case of an actual disaster.
“The point of it is to be a framework that we can hang any disaster
on top of,” said Baker. Baker added that the county has 125 systems
that need to be backed up under the plan. Baker said that if the
offices were physically damaged by fire or natural disaster,
business operations should be back up within two days with minimal
loss of data.
“The worst case scenario would be losing one weeks’ worth of data,”

Baker said that the technical support plan is more of a
series of guidelines for office employees concerning computers
and the Internet. “We now have a clear and coherent policy
there,” said Baker.
“Nothing had to be changed to make the Disaster Plan. Everything
was being done the right way already, we just had to pull it all
together,” said Baker.
