Disaster planning

Questions Related to Creating a Disaster Plan:

    1.  Has anyone had experience with removing records center and
        archives boxes which have water damage? How well do they
        withstand ceiling drips; just having the bottoms soaked; and
        having the entire box submerged? What types of
        equipment/containers do one use with respect to moving them
        off shelves and into containers to be freeze dried?

    2.  Has anyone had the experience of a halon system discharge?
        How vigorous is it and to what degree does material blow off
        shelves?

    3.  Has anyone had experience with water damage and/or halon
        discharge when using mobile shelving?
