Tips to prepare your business for a storm

With hurricane season in full swing here in the Quinlan, TX area, it’s important to make sure that your business is prepared for any storm that may come its way. Here are some tips from us at Slaughter Insurance Agency to help you and your business stay safe.

Tips to prepare your business for a storm

1. Keep emergency supplies on hand. Make sure that you have enough food, water, and other necessary items on hand to last several days in case of an emergency.

2. Create a plan. Make sure that everyone in your business knows what to do if a storm hits, including evacuation plans and how to contact each other if separated.

3. Secure your property and equipment. During strong winds or flooding, make sure that heavy objects are secured so they don’t cause damage, and store valuable equipment where it won’t be damaged by water or wind. 

4. Purchase insurance coverage for business property and possessions, as well as liability insurance in case of injury or damage caused by the storm. 

5. Stay up-to-date with weather forecasts and alerts from local authorities so you can prepare quickly if needed.  

6. Keep essential documents and financial records stored in a secure, waterproof location, such as an online storage system, or in multiple locations to protect against loss or damage. 

7. Have emergency numbers ready for quick contact with insurance companies, contractors, government agencies, and other emergency services.
