National Flood Safety Awareness Week

March 12th through the 16th marks National Flood Safety Awareness Week, reminding and informing people of the dangers of floods. The American Red Cross wants individuals, families, and communities to be prepared in the event of a flood.
 
Flooding is one of the most common, and most costly, natural disasters - causing more damage in the US than any other weather-related disaster. Being prepared and taking preventative actions will help protect your business, minimize damage to your property, and ensure a speedy recovery process. So, taking the right precautions and understanding risks involved is crucial.
 
Flood Safety Advice for Businesses:
    

  • Determine your company’s processes and equipment that are necessary to keep your business open - from vital communications, to tracking finances, to distributing your product or service.

                       

  • Maintain an inventory of all the important equipment that is regularly used by your business.   

 

  • Ensure that all paper and computer files have copies that are kept in an off-site yet easily accessible location.
