Hurricane Plan for Your Business

7/21/2020 (Permalink)

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), 40% of business won't reopen after a natural disaster, one year later 25% small businesses will close, and three years after the disaster 75% of businesses without a continuity plan will fail.

Why is it Important to Plan for a Hurricane?

"If your organization is vulnerable to hurricanes, it is important that you understand your risk, develop a preparedness and mitigation plan, and take action. Doing so will not only increase the safety of employees and customers, but it will help you remain in business after disasters, such as tropical storms and hurricanes, strike." - (FEMA)

Make sure you follow the Step-by-step Process:

  • Identify Your Risk - determine the specific areas your organization needs to address to prepare, mitigate risk, and return to operation following a disaster.
  • Develop a Plan - staff, surroundings, space, systems, structure and service
  • Take Action - perform, preparedness and mitigation activities with everyone in the building
  • Be Recognized and Inspire Others - complete the FEMA Ready Business application
