Being prepared for everything is one of the most important principles that business owners strive to instill in their employees. They prepare their team to overcome any challenge through training and continuous learning while also cultivating resilience and teamwork.

While most business owners are focused on educating their employees to overcome work-related obstacles, they may overlook the importance of preparing their staff for outside issues that may arise on their premises. Extreme weather is one of those unexpected occurrences that might catch your team off-guard.

Don’t let your crew rush around frantically during a weather emergency! Use our tips to ensure your team is prepared to weather any storm.

Know Your Risk

Assessing weather threats based on your specific location is the first step in developing a storm-ready plan for your business workplace. Because each region is prone to different sorts of storms, knowing the frequent risks that affect your area will help you narrow down what to prepare for.

Your Milwaukee business should anticipate a variety of local threats like flooding, severe storms, snowfall and tornadoes. Each year, these threats leave both homes and businesses with expensive aftermaths. Preparing your business in the best way you can is the thing that will keep it up and running when disaster strikes!

Understanding your flood risk is one example of being fully prepared before a calamity strikes your Milwaukee business. Other methods, such as staying up to speed with local weather alerts and tuning into local weather forecasts before each work week, might help you prepare your Milwaukee team.

Make a Plan to Communicate

A way to communicate is one of the most crucial things your team will require during a weather disaster. In this digital age, staying connected with your team has become effortless thanks to advancements in technology.

Ensure your entire team has a communication system that allows them to receive and send any vital weather updates. When a weather situation arises, this seamless mode of communication is quite helpful and will enable your team to act quickly. This could entail alerting them to gather supplies or prompting them to evacuate.

Plan Your Evacuation

While you never want it to happen, your team may need to evacuate quickly during a weather disaster. Make sure your team knows where to go by highlighting evacuation routes and any secondary exits. Label these routes, and hold regular exercises to familiarize your employees with the evacuation procedure.

During certain weather occurrences, evacuation may not be safe, and it may be far safer to stay put. Prepare a plan for your team to shelter in place by selecting a safe area, ideally without windows.

Whether you are sheltering in place or making a speedy evacuation, it’s vital to keep your team calm! Practice your escape plan, emphasize local weather dangers and have a quick means of communication to keep your commercial team calm and collected in the eye of any storm.

Don’t let extreme weather take control! If storms strike your business, SERVPRO can help you restore your losses.
