Prepare for Natural Disasters
This year for National Preparedness Month, join your community in preparing for emergencies and disasters of all type, and leading efforts to encourage the community to become more prepared. When a disaster happens, not only it devastates individuals and neighborhoods but the entire communities, including businesses of all sizes.
As an employer in your community, having a business continuity plan can help protect your company, its employees and its infrastructure and maximizes your chances of recover after an emergency or disaster. You can do this by taking three simple steps:
- Plan to stay in business
- Encourage your employees to become ready
- Protect your investment
We must work together as a team to ensure that our families, businesses, places of worship and neighborhoods are ready. At Ready.gov/business, companies can find vital information on how to begin preparing their organization and addressing their unique emergency. You can also contact your local SERVPRO to find out more on how to ready when a disaster strikes. If you’re in the Norcross/Duluth area you can contact us 770-858-5000.

Be Prepared for Severe Weather
Severe weather can happen anytime and anywhere. Being prepared for a severe weather is critical to staying safe. Deadly weather can have caused more than 8 billion in property damage. Many businesses affected by the disasters never reopen, so it is very important to be prepared.
Know Your Risk. You need to understand the type of hazardous weather that can affect where you live and work. Your shelter plan should include all types of local hazards because severe weather comes in many forms.
Take Action. You need to create communications plan for your home or business. You will need to put together an emergency kit. Also, keep your important papers and valuables in a safe place.
