A natural disaster disrupts everything from your daily schedule to the ability of your business to carry out its mission. It can also threaten physical safety and put critical company assets, like your heavy equipment, in harm's way. How you prepare for a natural disaster can mean the difference between being in as good of a position as possible to resume operations and get back to your regular routine and trying to repair serious damage to your operations.
A great plan goes a long way toward helping you, your business, your family and your home recover once the danger passes. As an individual and a business owner, you have responsibilities to your family, employees and clients. You'll need to consider what steps you can take to keep major assets like heavy machinery safe, as well as how you'll communicate with your workers and clients before, during and after any disaster. Of course, you'll also need to assemble an emergency supply kit and have an evacuation plan for your family.
