The east coast hurricane season has officially started and runs from June 1 to November 30th.  So far there have already been 5 named hurricanes in the Atlantic this season.

Here is a brief list of things you should be considering NOW in order to be prepared.

  • Make sure your flood insurance is active. Many people let these policies lapse to save money or as an oversight.
  • Make sure both your home and business are secured as much as possible. This may include storm shutters, clearing gutters/downspouts to direct water away from the structure, and checking the roof for damage.
  • If you have a generator make sure it is operable. If it hasn’t been serviced recently you should check the oil, make sure you have adequate fresh fuel, and run the generator periodically.
  • Develop a business continuity plan. This should include emergency communication plans for employees and customers, facility remediation contacts, and contingency work plans.
  • If you are in an evacuation zone determine where you will go should the need arise.
  • Download the SERVPRO Emergency Ready Plan app which allows you to store and share emergency contacts, critical facility information, and document current conditions. For more information and to access the app click HERE.

Finally, you can register with SERVPRO to be added to our list of contacts so we have your information on file in the event you suffer a loss.  If you would like assistance in preparing your readiness plan please contact us for a free consultation and have a great summer!
