NORTHSTAR - LSU TABLETOP EXERCISE A RESOUNDING SUCCESS
Baton Rouge, LA – February 2018 was a busy time in the NorthStar Business Continuity Division’s schedule. The team planned for and executed several events in conjunction with multiple LSU departments prior to the tabletop exercise, including Phase I of the Pre-Loss Assessments on the campus and a professional drone survey.
The execution of the PLA’s on the campus, as well as the drone survey, were scheduled and executed without a hitch. The PLA team was able to complete all objectives as well as a few properties in addition to those scheduled for Phase I.
Our National Alliance partner, Data Wing Global, performed the drone surveys flawlessly and provided LSU with incredibly detailed information and analyses of two of their building rooftops. Once the information was delivered to LSU, NorthStar’s focus was set on the upcoming tabletop exercise.
“The underwriters were impressed by the amount of work that has been put in toward the development of pre-loss assessments. SOP’s, and planning”, wrote Colorado Robertson, Assistant Director of Risk Management at LSU. It was also expressed that LSU is very impressed with NorthStar’s commitment to “provide both people and resources for minor and major losses that may impact the campus.”
The NorthStar Business Continuity Division expects that several more clients will be scheduling tabletop exercises in the following months. The benefits of running a tabletop exercise have drawn interest from a wide array of clients, from universities to manufacturing plants.
