Have you ever thought about what you would do if your building experienced a disaster? Most people don’t. According to the Small Business Administration, 50% of businesses that experience some type of disaster never recover. Having a Commercial Emergency Response Plan will help you and your business respond quickly and effectively to a disaster and get you up and running as soon as possible.
There are many things you can do to help plan for a disaster. Here are some suggestions:
- Focus on preventative maintenance. The odds of a disaster shutting down your business are significantly lower if you focus on being proactive. Make sure your building is operating efficiently and you are aware of potential hazards or malfunctions.
- Know where system operations are and how to use them. Knowing your building and where the shut offs are is crucial to minimizing potential damage. Many plumbing lines will dump hundreds of gallons of water a minute and spread quickly. You need to know what to do instantly to avoid further damage.
- Develop a communication plan. A command center with a proper line of communication on who can make decisions and who to call is crucial to a quick response.
