Be Prepared

 

Here is something we can all take advantage of - this is the US government delivering an excellent program we all need no matter what country you live in.  America's PrepareAthon! is an opportunity for individuals, organizations, and communities to prepare for specific hazards through group discussions, drills, and exercises. Follow the link to get started today.

 

Companies that care about their employees, suppliers and customers need to create a business continuity plan to protect them. The Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) is the perfect starting place; FEMA’s mitigation and insurance programs cover the whole community, people, organizations, government and even businesses. FEMA mitigation and insurance programs have tools every business owner can utilize to make their places of business safer for their employees and more resilient to disaster.

 

The FEMA Building Science Branch develops and produces guidance that focuses on creating disaster-resilient communities to reduce loss of life and property. They conduct post-disaster engineering investigations for both man-made and natural hazard events. They take a lead role in developing publications, guidance materials, tools, technical bulletins, and recovery advisories that incorporate the most up-to-date building codes, floodproofing requirements, seismic design standards, and wind design requirements for new construction and the repair of existing buildings.

 

The National Flood Insurance Program Almost 40 percent of small businesses never reopen their doors following a disaster because just a few inches of water can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage. Over the past 5 years (2006-2010), the average commercial flood claim has amounted to just over $85,000. Flood insurance is the best way to protect yourself from devastating financial loss.

 

So get started, and Be Prepared!
