As a business leader, you should have a comprehensive emergency preparedness plan when preparing for a power outage that occurs over an extended period of time - particularly if this blackout is caused by severe weather in your nearby area. Are you and your crisis management team prepared to keep your employees and business safe without electricity, heat/air conditioning or even suitable drinking water?
Do you have an emergency preparedness plan in place to protect your business and employees from the disruptions that may occur due to a large event? Large events attract numerous attendees and increase the corresponding odds of a dangerous occurrence; therefore, having a well-constructed crisis management plan is imperative to responding to and managing incidents that may arise.
When your area is issued a hurricane watch or warning, as a business leader, you often only have a very small amount of time in which to act quickly to protect your employees and your business. Because you do not have long to evacuate your personnel or to protect your company, having and executing a hurricane preparedness plan is imperative to safely recovering from this type of crisis.
