If you live in Texas then you know hurricane season is taken very seriously. Being prepared for the worse will benefit not only you but your business, your customers, and their customers as well. Be sure to make an emergency hurricane plan in place for your company. Here are four easy tips when preparing your hurricane plan.
Getting in touch with your local bulk fuel supplier before the start of the hurricane season is smart. If you have multiple bulk fuel suppliers then make sure they are not all using the same refinery because that could hinder you from buying a lot of fuel. Also, make sure your account is open and you have no past balances that are due.
When you know that hurricane season is approaching, it is a good idea to call your credit card company to give them a heads up that you might be making a higher charge when purchasing fuel. If you do not notify them about a possible big purchase then the credit card company can decline the charge, or flag this purchase and freeze your card.
If you have a company vehicle, it would be smart to park it in a safe protected area before a storm hits. Having your company’s vehicle in a safe spot will ensure that you will be able to help others and get back to work faster and safer. Also, store company equipment in a protected place, that way nothing will be damaged during the storm.
Do you know which employees can work 24/7 if a storm hits? Have you assigned certain roles to those employees in case of a hurricane in your area? Have you run drills with those employees to see if their role you assigned them will be executed effectively and efficiently? These are a few questions you need to be asking yourself before hurricane season begins. Being prepared is key when thinking about any natural disaster emergency plans.
