A hurricane is devastating for your business because the storm can bring a storm surge, powerful winds, and torrential rains. Your business can survive the storm by taking a few steps to prepare.
First, if you know a storm is coming, you can board up your windows to try to limit the damage. You can also move any valuable equipment, like computers or other devices, to an upper floor if you cannot remove them altogether.
Second, you are going to want to take some photos and videos of your business. This can be used to provide a detailed list of inventory for the items inside your company. These contents may be eligible for replacement costs in an insurance claim, so documenting your property before the storm is incredibly helpful.
Third, you will want to think about a business continuity plan. Are there certain aspects of your business that can happen away from your office? As you prepare your team for evacuation, you should consider that it could be several weeks or even months before you can return. A detailed plan for how you might continue to do business could be crucial to its survival.
