IMPORTANT STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS FROM HURRICANE DAMAGE
Irma, Michael, Andrew and Wilma are the names of hurricanes that have had a substantial impact on Florida over the past nearly 30 years. The damage associated with the hurricanes is jaw dropping and heartbreaking in many cases. Unfortunately, there are reports that the hurricane season for 2020 may bring severe storms that can cause extensive destruction.
Although it is true that there is no sure-fire way to ensure that your business completely avoids sustaining damage from a hurricane, there are certain steps that you can take to reduce the possibility of incurring serious damage to your property. The professionals at All American Facility Maintenance are here to provide you with the help you need putting together and implementing a plan of action.
FORMULATE A PLAN
One of the best things that you can do for your business is to prepare ahead of time for the worst possible scenario. You can start by assessing the outside of your business. Does your building have an abundance of windows that could be shatter with strong wind or blowing debris? Is the building near a body of water that could flood during a storm? If the answer is yes, then you should plan to have ply boards and sandbags on hand.
You should never underestimate the potential impact of a tropical storm. Although the damage from a tropical storm may not be as severe as that of a hurricane, there is still a relatively high probability that your business could sustain damage.
There are other practical steps that you should always takes when it comes to managing your employees in the event of a natural disaster. A good rule of thumb is to routinely ensure that the contact information for all of your employees is up to date. This way, if you need to speak with them about not coming in or you need their help to prepare for the storm, you can easily connect with them.
Periodically having hurricane drills is another excellent way to keep you and your team sharp in case of a hurricane. You should run through certain procedures if a hurricane is imminent including touching base with our company with any changes or tweaks to your overall plan.
