Check out the little excerpt form this eweek.com story. It is on page 2 from
the link below.

"For example, you can encourage employees who happen to be amateur radio
operators to keep a radio at work. Your company can even buy the radio for
them, and you can encourage employees to get their ham radio licenses. Its
important to know that these radios can only be used for true emergencies,
such as threats to life or safety. You cant use ham radio to do anything
related to conducting your business. But if an employee gets injured during
a disaster and the landlines and mobile networks are out, your resident ham
radio operator can use the radio to call for help."
