We understand. You're busy. You don't have time to think about all the things that could happen to interrupt your business. You survived Hurricane Charley and Irma OK and those were bad storms.
It can't get worse than that, right? Unfortunately, it probably could.
You might talk with your staff about preparing for things like a hurricane once you see your city in the "cone of uncertainty". At least with a hurricane, you have some time to prepare. Many threats give you no warning at all. If you aren't prepared when they choose to occur you may have a problem.
Below we have listed some potential disasters just waiting to happen. Sure, some of them may not be a possibility in your area. Some of them may not be too likely. Perhaps, but the good news is that preparing for most of the items on this list requires similar steps.
Have you thought about these possibilities?
There is a long list of concerns to prepare for. This list is here to help you prepare and if we missed something please let us know and we'd be happy to add to our list.
