& B Welding Company Fire
Date: February 8, 1989
8, 1989 an early morning fire destroyed the building and office
contents of B&B Welding Company., Inc.
As the news
media questioned the status of our extensive computer system I realized
the diskettes were stored nightly in the fire files.
Late in the
day a fire inspector appeared at the scene. I confronted him concerning
the files and he very carefully accompanied me into the burned premises.
There amid the rubble stood our two Schwab files, their once shining
black enamel finish was now blistered and buckled from the heat. I
inserted the key, pulled out the drawers one at a time. The diskettes
had not melted, all corporate papers were intact.
you Schwab you saved our business."
