Did you know? Up to 75% of small businesses lack a disaster recovery plan, according to a survey by Nationwide Insurance. That means it will take those businesses longer to get back on their feet after a flood, fire, tornado or other disaster.

However, careful planning can help companies stay up and running through a disaster, or open their doors quickly after one. The Insurance Information Institute has a series of “must-dos” for small businesses. Let’s look at some of the highlights:

Make a Plan

To have a plan, you have to, well, make a plan. What do you, your managers and your employees need to do in time of disaster? Have a clear marching order in terms of who does what and who calls whom. Your plan should prioritize preservation of life, then preservation of business assets, such as facilities, inventory and intellectual property.

Who You Gonna Call?

Key to your plan is a list of resources to call on. You’ll need to alert a chain of command within your business. Plus, you’ll need to have contact information for outside resources, such as your insurer and commercial cleaning partner. You’ll also need to be able to contact your vendors and suppliers. And you’ll need to communicate with customers about changes or interruptions to your business process. All that contact information should be accessible from outside of your place of work, such as on a cloud server.

Consult With the Experts

SERVPRO® has more than 40 years of experience in disaster mitigation for business clients. We can work with you before disaster strikes to help you understand how damage from a storm, fire or other natural disaster can affect your business. That way, when disaster happens, you’ll have a list of what to do and who to call. At a time when time is of essence, you’ll be able to take decisive action to get back in business again.
