4 Ways to Prepare Your Business Before a Storm

If you are expecting a storm in Centennial, CO, it is important to prepare your business for an emergency. Disaster preparedness should include a variety of areas, from the building to your employees. The following are a few things that you should do in preparation.

1. Inspect the Building

One of the first things you should do is to make sure that your building is in good condition. If there is any existing damage, it may become worse during severe weather. Check for cracks or leaks in the roof and exterior of the building and make sure that all the doors and windows are properly sealed.

2. Back Up Important Data

Disaster preparedness should not just include your physical belongings. If your business has important files and documents stored on its computers, you should make sure that you create a back-up. If the building floods or experiences a power surge, electronics can be damaged resulting in loss of data.

3. Invest in a Generator

If you plan to continue working during a storm, a generator can come in handy. Smaller generators can give you enough time to safely shut down your equipment, and larger ones can help keep your business running during a power outage.

4. Create a Disaster Plan

In some cases, it will be safer for your employees to stay at home rather than come into work. One part of business preparedness is ensuring that everyone knows what your expectations are during severe weather. Make sure to have a plan for emergencies that happen at work as well. You may want to build an emergency kit with flashlights, batteries, bottled water and other supplies.


Practicing proper disaster preparedness can keep both your property and your employees safe during a storm. However, sometimes damage cannot be avoided. If your building has water or flood damage, contact a cleanup and restoration company right away to begin work on repairs.
