As a business owner in Fargo, you’ve got a lot on your plate. Between making sure your business stays up and running and ensuring everything with your employees is taken care of, it’s not likely that a severe weather emergency plan is something you think about often.
The truth is however, that having a severe weather emergency plan can make all the difference if something is to happen. Your business is a lot more likely to stay protected if you have a plan in place.
Creating a Severe Weather Plan for Your Business
Here are some tips to develop your plan.
- Tailor your plan to your business: No severe weather emergency plan should be the same because no two businesses are the same. Your plan will be designed to suit your building and what you do as a business in order to keep everyone as safe as possible.
- Do a property inspection: Check the walls, doors, windows, and roof to see if there’s any way you might be able to increase protection and safety.
- Run through different scenarios: You should have a plan in place for each of the possible storms rather than having one plan for all.
- Prepare, prepare, prepare: You will likely have at least a bit of a warning when a storm is to hit. This time can be used to reiterate the steps you and your employees will need to take in order to stay as safe as possible. You should be able to tell them where they need to go and what they have to do once there.
