Emergency Preparedness Documents

A selection of documents – English and Spanish, on preparing for an Emergency.

Take this seriously.  Also assist in preparing your employees – they may not take the potential disaster as seriously as they should.  Also remember:

  • Save your data – Your company may not survive the loss of financial, sales, vendor, and buyer records.  Backup and ensure all data is in a safe location.
  • Vendors – If all of your most important materials are in an area close to your business, they may create a supply chain crunch of they are damaged/destroyed.  They may not prepare as seriously as you.
  • Have an 800 number for your employees to call into – require them to call following a disaster, such as a hurricane, and be ready to go to their premises if they do not call in. They, or their families may be in need.
  • Non-Structural Hazard Mitigation – Look at everything non-structural related that is either business critical, or valuable to the company or employees.  This includes momentos, artwork, etc.
