Did you know that 50% of businesses never reopen after suffering a disaster

According to Forbes in 2017 the United States had at least $306 billion in damages due to natural disasters.  Between hurricanes and massive flooding, destructive wildfires and heatwaves, cities were hit hard weather-related disasters and, unfortunately, experts only expect things to get worse.

If your a property owner or a property manager you have the overwhelming task with overseeing not only the people working, but the property also.

Here are the top 4 things you should have in your disaster emergency plan:

  1. Establish Safety Plans.  Top priority should be safety for the employees in a business or tenants such as in a apartment setting.  
  2. Communications.  It is key whether it is thru a newsletter, email, or meeting.
  3. Obtain Insurance.  Having insurance and understanding what it is and what isn't covered.
  4. Stay Compliant With Building Codes.  This includes building design to materials being used.
