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.
