There are some simple, yet important things you can do to head off disaster when a hurricane like Florence comes to town. Disaster expert Janice Jucker has some specific tips to get your own business ready on the SBA website, but here are a few we think are extra important.
- Make sure you have access to your insurance policy information, especially policy numbers. Keep handy the phone numbers for your insurance agent and the claims department.
- Print out an updated list of employees’ contact numbers and email addresses so you can touch base for updates and check-ins.
- Move your important business records and irreplaceable items to an offsite location.
- Save important data to a cloud backup just in case you have computer issues.
