This document is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Best Practices Portfolio. The Best Practices Portfolio is a collection of true stories about people and communities who have experienced disasters, and what mitigation they used to survive, rebuild, and prepare for disasters. From the document: "On November 20, 1997, Delta Dental Plan of California and Deltanet, Delta's data processing and consulting subsidiary, conducted a business continuity exercise for its Sacramento facilities. The exercise was done in partnership with Region IX of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The objective of the exercise, entitled the 'El Nino" Exercise, was to test Delta's business and Information Technology (IT) contingency plans in anticipation of unusually stormy weather and potential severe flooding at the business locations." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
