BF Strategic Site Selection Services

Bob's Blog


In my non-professional travel and everyday life I often view things through the prism of a site selector. In this blog I share some observations and thoughts that might be of mild interest to the larger community of site selectors, economic developers, and corporate managers. I am not a frequent blogger (more often doing client work), and when I do so I may add a post with a link in LinkedIn. I use my twitter account, @BFSSSS, more as a rant about poor customer service or what seem to me to be non sequiturs. Actually, I have found twitter to sometimes yield quicker responses than via customer service kiosk queues or phone calls when those media are backed up or unavailable, for example after a flight cancellation, while overseas, or after one of several hurricane evacuations from my summer home on the Outer Banks.

OBX power outage

We are down on the Outer Banks and following the travails of our friends and neighbors to the south on Hatteras Island that must evacuate due to a construction accident severing the only power feed. It may take two weeks to repair.

A reminder of the importance of securing dual power feeds on critical site selections. Also the role of alternate technologies, such as wind power, in appropriate locations.
