With the possibility of Hurricane Joaquin hitting the East Coast, it’s a good reminder to think about disaster preparedness no matter where you live. Did you know that flooding is the #1 natural disaster in the United States? In fact, in the past 5 years, all 50 states have experienced floods or flash floods. Fortunately, with advance preparation, you can limit your recovery expenses and ensure your organization stays afloat.
If you have an emergency, the first priority is always life and safety. If there are pressing safety issues, evacuate the building and call 9-1-1. The next priority is to stabilize the situation and begin immediate mitigation to prevent further damage. If you will be filing an insurance claim, it is also important to contact your insurance carrier.
