With storm season in full swing, is your commercial building prepared for the potential damages that might occur? Learn about the different ways you can prepare your commercial property for the upcoming storms this season.

According to seacoastconstruction.net, these tips prove to be effective in preparing your commercial property for storm season:

  1. Complete a building inspection and ensure all maintenance and repairs are up to date: by doing this you can strengthen and protect your building. You can also make upgrades such as compact glass windows to protect from strong winds. You can also visit the FEMA flood map service center to evaluate and determine how susceptible your building is to flooding or resulting water damage and storm damage.
  2. Have emergency response plans ready: if you don’t already have a disaster response plan in place, now is the time to create one or revisit the one you currently have in place to update if necessary. In this plan, you need to document how you will protect your property and your employees (if applicable) in the event of a disaster such as a storm.It is also useful in this step to review your company’s insurance policy and to take photos and videos of your property to keep on file in case you need to file a claim.
  3. Ensure supplies are well-stocked and test any systems/back-up equipment: this may include fuel, generators, tools, sandbags, or any other protective supplies for your property.
  4. When the storm approaches, secure exterior and interior property: this includes windows, electronics, exterior signage, moving furniture and equipment away from the windows, and turning off the electricity before leaving the premises. 
  5. Implement communication plans: make sure employees/staff know the processes and procedures before, during, and after the storm and ensure they stay well informed about when it is safe to return to the building.
