How to Prepare Your Business for Winter
December 21 is the first day of winter, is your business ready? SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park can help prepare your business with an Emergency Ready Profile (ERP). Here are 3 tips you can implement yourself:
- Check your business property for downed tree limbs and branches. Weather, such as wind, heavy rain, ice and snow, can cause branches to fall, which could cause damage to the property and potentially cause personal injuries.
- Inspect property, especially walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazard potential.
- Inspect all handrails, stairwells and entryways to address and correct potential slippery or hazardous areas. Install mats or non-slip surfaces and post caution signs where water could be present.
SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park can provide you assistance by developing an ERP. As part of a well thought-out Contingency Plan, your ERP will contain information you need in the event an emergency situation occurs. You can see how this is done, by watching this video.
