Preparing your business for a storm here in the West Palm Beach, FL area can seem like an overwhelming task, but it doesn’t have to be! With the right planning and preparation, you can be prepared for anything Mother Nature throws at you.
Here are some tips from us at Atlantis Insurance Inc. to help you prepare your business for a storm:
1. Assemble an emergency kit
Make sure you have all the necessary items in place such as flashlights, batteries, first aid kit, bottled water, food, and other supplies to sustain yourself and your employees in case of an emergency. It’s important to keep these items updated and replenished as needed.
2. Have an evacuation plan
In case of severe weather conditions or power loss, it’s important to make sure everyone knows where they should go and what their duties are in case of evacuation. Make sure all staff members are familiar with the plan ahead of time so they know how to act if necessary.
3. Secure your property
If possible make sure loose items such as outdoor furniture or decorations are secured or stored away safely before a storm arrives to prevent damage or injury from flying debris.
4. Keep communication open
Make sure you have multiple ways to communicate with employees in case of an emergency situation such as text messaging, emails, phone calls or social media updates.
5. Monitor weather forecasts
Stay up-to-date on current weather conditions and forecasts so that you can anticipate possible adverse effects from storms and take proper action if needed.
