Prepare Your Company for a Flood

When there is a storm warning in Prescott, AZ it is important to pay attention to it. Flood water can cause a potentially life-threatening situation, so it should never be taken lightly. This is true whether water is rising in homes or businesses. If you are responsible for or involved in your company’s flood emergency response plan, it is important to keep the following four things in mind.

Be Informed. Learn as much as you can. The lives of your employees and co-workers could depend upon your knowledge. Make sure you can tell people where to go for safety in a flooded building. If there is a flood watch, make sure you are monitoring the television or the radio to know if there is an evacuation order, or where it is better to remain in place.

Plan Ahead. Know the likelihood of your company building being surrounded by flood water. Are you in a flood plain? You should also have a number of emergency contacts at hand to call if you have questions or need assistance. In the case of extensive water damage, be ready to turn to a company that you trust to come in for a quick restoration.

Protect Valuable Electronics. With all of the important information that is on company computers, make sure you have all of your data backed up. Water can cause so much damage to a computer system that its company files might be unrecoverable. A system to back up data will protect priceless information.

Maintain an Emergency Kit. A company emergency kit should contain the following items:

First-aid kit
Food
Water
Flashlights
Batteries

This information is only part of the beginning stages to protecting your company from flood water damage. There are many other things you can do as well, but having a plan in place is a great first step. Visit http://www.SERVPROyavapaicounty.com for more information on flood damage.
