Businesses

 

Flooding can be a major concern for businesses. Businesses must take precautions to prepare for flooding events. This means preparing staff, facilities and any products that could be affected by the impact and damages of floods. Learning about emergency preparedness within the municipality and determining what incentives, insurance coverage, and risk information are available will assist with protecting your business from flood risks and damage.

 

Getting your business back to business includes protecting your assets, but also planning ahead so your staff can take care of business at home, then return to get your business back up and running.

 

Businesses need to assess their risks and put together an emergency plan in order to ensure critical resources (staffing, space, materials, procedures, equipment) are available to stay in business during and after a flood event.
