Take a few moments to remind yourself of what to do to prevent major setbacks after a flood, storm damage, fire, vandalism, or even crime scene damage at your business.
Establish A Contingency Plan
As much as we hope nothing happens to your property, things do happen. It’s important to be prepared for many different situations, such as floods, storm damage, crime scene cleanup, power outages or network interruptions, and fires and evacuation procedures.
Some things to consider including in the plan:
- Who is responsible for the building and reporting the loss?
- Do you need someone on call 24/7?
- Can your employees work from home if the building is unusable?
- Are there customers to consider or are there only employees on site?
- Where are our primary and secondary rally points?
Practice the Plan
A plan is only effective if employees know about it and are able to implement it. This could look like annual training or practice drills, or network testing to ensure offsite availability. Regular fire evacuation drills will help remind employees where their rally points are and how to respond in case of a sudden evacuation.
