Preparing Your Business for Tornado Season
Spring brings lots of changes, especially with the weather. A sunny week can be followed by a week of storms, and you will want to be prepared for all possible scenarios.
You will want to do an assessment of your property before heavy rains:
1. Proper Drainage
2. Roof Leaks
3. Window and Door Leaks
Make arrangements as soon as possible for repairs to be done before another storm passes through town.
Thunderstorms cause most of the severe spring weather. Lightning, flooding, and other types of activity will be a part of your spring weather experience, which is caused when warm, moist air collides with cool, dry air. Planning ahead makes sense so that your property and the people you care about can avoid injury and damages.
Here are some things to think about or to have on hand for storms:
- A battery-operated flashlight, with extra batteries.
- A battery-operated, NOAA Weather Radio.
- An emergency evacuation plan. Have a map with an escape route in case of a flood. Make sure everyone knows where to go in the event of a disaster.
- Make sure everyone has a list of updated emergency contact information.
- A First Aid Kit
