With the six-month Atlantic Hurricane Season beginning June 1, the U.S. Small Business Administration is urging businesses to take steps to protect their lives and property before the storms hit. Even if you’re not in a hurricane prone state, you should have a disaster plan for your small business.
Make sure your business property is less vulnerable by identifying possible hazards, developing a plan which includes establishing escape routes and keeping emergency phone numbers handy. Keeping copies of important business and personal records off-site as well as having appropriate insurance coverage are critical disaster preparedness strategies suggested by the SBA.
Why would you not take steps to protect your business? Leave me a comment and let me know.
