Preparing Your Business for Natural Disaster

  • The best time to respond to a disaster is before it happens. A relatively small investment of time and money now may prevent severe damage and disruption of life and business in the future. Every area in the country is subject to some kind of disaster – flood, hurricane, earthquake, ice storm, and landslide, to name a few. Even man-made disasters – oil spill, civil unrest, fire, etc. – can devastate the surrounding neighborhood and economy. Even though an area has never been damaged before, there is no guarantee that it will not happen tomorrow.

  • Ask yourself: what if the worst happened? How would it affect my business and my family? Would we survive if the business were closed down for weeks, months, or perhaps my entire revenue season? What can I do to make sure we survive?

  • Be a little pessimistic now, and assume it CAN happen to you. Develop a Disaster Plan for your home or business now so you can rest a little more easily in the future. You should think about:

      • Open for Business: A Disaster Planning Toolkit
      • Facilities (Buildings & Equipment)
      • Operations
      • Critical Information & Communications
      • Insurance
