Prepare your business
When hurricanes, high winds and heavy rain form, business such as banks, gas stations and grocery stores may shut down for prolonged periods of time. When businesses close their doors due to natural disasters, owners can lose big, in both sales and reputation.
More recently, business owners are evaluating the overall cost impact of when their business loses power during an emergency, disaster, or inclement weather. They question is if they could continue to operate and be without power for 1hr, 12hr, 24hr, or even 3 days.
With this in mind, many of today’s business owners are opting to invest in their own backup power systems, doing all they can to keep their doors open when disaster strikes and grid power fails.
