Prepare for Anything
Natural disasters often feel like an issue that happens to other people, not you, but it's important to have a plan just in case. Having a disaster plan means you're ready in case anything happens, and is an important part of being a business owner.
Disaster Preparations Especially for Business Owners
- Double-Check Your Insurance
Not every business policy is designed with natural disasters in mind. Often, excessive damages from natural causes will not be fully covered, leaving business owners to foot the bill for recovery from their own capital. However, starting this dialogue with your agent and researching the types of supplemental policies business owners may be eligible for will help you be certain you are fully covered.
- Create Your Action Plan
When you are faced with a scenario where you must evacuate from your business right away, it is important to have a plan in place and all necessary supplies in order to do so in as little time as possible. Documenting local shelters, evacuation routes and medical facilities will be helpful, as well as any key actions such as shutting down machinery on your way out the door.
- Rehearse Drills and Prepare Staff
It is important to not only make an emergency action plan for yourself but to also include your staff in the procedures. Once you have your details determined, sharing the plan with your employees and designating those in leadership roles to host regular and varied disaster drills with the team can help everyone stay safe and know what to do in a frightening scenario.
- Choose a Restoration Company to Work With
All aspects of disaster planning are important, but one vital thing is knowing how you will get your business property suitable to reopen following the disaster. The best way to do that is to work with a restoration company that has expertise in commercial jobs in order to get your damage restored and your doors reopened as quickly as possible
In recent years, a greater emphasis has been placed on supporting local businesses. From small mom and pop shops, farmers markets, or even disaster restoration services, it is important to support your local community, its members, and the local economy. That’s why SERVPRO of Barberton/Norton is proud to be locally owned and operated. When you support SERVPRO of Barberton/Norton, you’re supporting local businesses near you in Barberton or Norton. But why is serving local businesses so important? Well, here are three big reasons!
- Boosting the local economy
It makes sense when you think about it, doesn’t it? If you support a local business and that business grows, they hire new employees. It’s very likely they’ll hire people that live nearby, and this keeps the money within the community.
- Building Community Connections
This piggybacks off boosting the local economy. When you support a local business, that business can become a staple to the community. It becomes a place where people can meet and meet up, make new friends or reunite with old ones. An identity can be formed around a local business, where you know the owners or employees, and know you can trust them.
- Environmental Preservation
You probably know preserving the environment is important, but did you know supporting local businesses does just that? But local businesses tend to also buy from local merchants, instead of from huge facilities far away, and this decreases carbon emissions.
