How To Get Your Business Ready for a Major Storm

A heavy rainstorm can occur at any time. Lightning and thunder may arrive outside your Wilshire Heights, TX, building when it is full of employees. Thunderstorms can be particularly dangerous. This type of storm features either 58-mile-per-hour winds or 1-inch hail. It can cause a variety of emergencies, including:

  • Power outages
  • Flash floods
  • Lightning fires

It is thus important to prepare your property before the severe weather arrives. This will keep your employees safe and limit your need for storm cleanup services. Here are some tips to get you ready for the heavy rain, lightning and high winds.

Stay Informed
Your community should have an emergency alert system in place. Make sure that you have access to this system. You should also understand exactly what the different alerts mean. A severe thunderstorm watch is issued when harsh weather may occur in a particular area. A severe thunderstorm warning, meanwhile, indicates that radar or storm spotters have seen dangerous conditions nearby.

Secure Your Property
The wind that often accompanies a major rainstorm can blow away any valuable equipment you keep outside your building. Make sure you bring these items inside before the bad weather arrives.
Wind can also knock shrubs and tree branches onto the ground or into windows. Keep the plants strong and healthy by trimming them regularly and removing any damaged sections.

Be Safe
If severe weather occurs during business hours, your employees may be trapped inside during the worst parts of the storm. You should thus keep an emergency kit on the property. The kit should contain supplies the workers can use if they are stuck in the building for hours or days at a time. There should also be a first-aid kit readily available on site.
A rainstorm can cause major wind or flood damage to your property. By being proactive, you can keep employees safe and limit the harm to your premises.
