As we transition into autumn, we want to ensure you are best prepared for any unexpected natural disasters in your area. While we can’t control the weather, we can control how we respond to it.
That’s why we’ve put together essential items to keep your business running in case of a natural disaster.
Essential survival items for any business
- Emergency survival kit with non-perishable food, bottled water, and basic first-aid supplies
- Portable power banks and chargers for mobile devices
- Hard/Digital copies of important documents such as insurance policies and business contracts
- Sandbags or other flood protection measures if located in a flood-prone area
- Emergency lighting, such as torches with spare batteries, lanterns, candles, and matches
- Two-way portable radios or satellite phones for communication
- Fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, and other safety equipment
It is also important to ensure you have a solid emergency plan in place. This should include evacuation routes, emergency contact information, and a plan for backup power and communication.
