It's National Preparedness Month…is Your Business Ready?

Although National Preparedness Month (NPM) only occurs once a year, preparedness plans are an ongoing concern for every business that should be paid attention to year round.

This year, NPM is focusing on “planning, with an overarching theme: Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How.” Read on to learn just how you can start…or continue preparing your family, home and business.

So How Can You Prepare?
Ready.gov shares a few key takeaways that you can start working on now:

  • Take the time to learn and teach your employees lifesaving skills like CPR, first aid and AED training.
  • Check your insurance policies and coverage for the hazards you may face (think flooding, earthquakes and tornados).
  • Be sure to think about costs as well and make sure your business is prepared for unplanned expenses.
  • Know how to take practical safety steps like shutting off water and gas.
