Disaster Prevention List
The easiest way to help ensure that your business recovers from a disaster is to plan ahead. Do everything you can to prevent that disaster from happening.
This means conducting a thorough safety audit of your business's fire prevention and safety systems. Check systems regularly to make sure they're functioning properly. And make sure your employees know who to go to and what to do if the systems aren't working.
Some of the disaster prevention equipment you should consider putting in place includes:
- Fire extinguishers
- Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
- Sprinkler systems
- Emergency back-up generators
- Illuminated fire exits (easily marked and accessible)
- Sump pump and backup (for ground floors and basements)
- Lighting protection system
- Surge protectors
- Back-up communication systems (two-way radios)
