What You Can Do to Protect Your Business During Hurricane Season 2020
Florida is truly an incredible place to live. Over and above the beautiful weather and the white sandy beaches, there are also an abundance of fun places to visit. However, one of the leading downfalls of living in Florida is the fact that the state is highly susceptible to facing the brunt of an impact from a hurricane. If you own a business in Florida, it’s essential that you take the right steps to prepare your business during the hurricane season 2020. Here are few helpful tips to keep in mind.
Evaluate What is Most Important
First and foremost, you will want to do a general evaluation of your physical business location to determine what is important. If you have windows in your store front, you may want to consider having a member of our team come out to board them up. Additionally, if you have merchandise on a storeroom floor, you should plan to move these items to higher ground in case of flooding.
Of course, you never want to forget that the safety and well-being of your employees is paramount. You should always make it clear to your team that you will never do anything to put them in harms way.
Create a Plan
Designing a plan of action to handle a hurricane is a necessity. As soon as you hear that a hurricane is on its way, you should have a clear list of what needs to be done and who you need to contact. The All American Facility Maintenance team can help you not only create a plan of action but assist in implementing it. You tell us how we can help you and we will put together a free quote for any work.
Communication is key during an emergency situation as well as while you are managing the aftermath. If a hurricane is imminent, one of the first groups of people that you should reach out to are your employees. It’s important to let them know whether you are planning on opening your business on a certain day or if they should plan to work remotely if possible.
You should also make every attempt to communicate with your customers regarding your plan of action for a storm. If you plan to close your business, an excellent suggestion is to post this information on your website or social media pages. You can also change the recording on your company’s answering machine to reflect that the business will be closed or operating during different hours as a result of the weather.
