As I watched Hurricane Charley approach the Tampa Bay area (where I live) last year, I put my disaster plan into action. But I was concerned that I’d covered all the bases. At that point, it was a little late and fortunately I didn’t have to find out (then), because Charley never made it here. He did make it to another area in Florida and destroyed many businesses. We’ve heard about the ones that had external business buildings, but not about all of those that were home based — and we probably never will.
No matter where you live, there is no way to get away from weather related disasters. And amazingly, according to an expert I recently spoke with, many business disasters have nothing to do with the weather. So whether you’re a business of one or 100, you should have a disaster plan for your business.
