Tips To Prepare Your Business For A Flood
Rain showers have been a very popular topic the last month in Minnesota! As we have all been experiencing heavy rain falls at least once a week. That is why SERVPRO of Elk River, Becker and Big Lake is here to leave you some tips to prepare your business for the excessive amount of rain. It is better to get ahead of the rain, than behind it!
Plan An Evacuation Route
If the excess rain is to cause flooding it is important to have a safe route out of the building and on the roads to get one away from the event.
Create An Emergency Kit
Some items that one could include in this emergency kit are containers of clean water, non-perishable food, and first aid kit. Whatever you feel is necessary for your business.
Protect Important Information
All important documents should have backup copies - they should be placed in another area that would not be experiencing the damage.
Keep Building Ready
To keep a building ready one must keep the gutters and storm drains clean to help minimize damage.
Big Picture of the Idea
Create a comprehensive emergency plan to help prepare for an excess amount of rain and the damage it can cause. This way it will help to ensure that minimal damage will be caused.
All matters mentioned above are to help, but have no guarantees.
