Identify the potential risks that hurricanes post to your business, such as flooding, power outages, and supply chain disruptions.

STEP 2: Develop a Plan:

Create a comprehensive hurricane preparedness plan that includes evacuation routes, communication procedures, and a list of essential internal and external contacts.  

STEP 3: Secure Your Equipment

Ensure that your equipment, including Temperature Control, Compressed Air, Power Generation, and Electrical Distribution products, is secure and protected from any damage that the storm might create.  

STEP 4: Emergency Equipment Plans

Pre-planning is the most important part of the process as it relates to logistics, site contacts, and correct package sizing. Consider renting backup/emergency equipment from ERS-Cat to ensure that your business can continue running during natural disasters. Contact your ERS-CAT sales representative to perform a comprehensive plan that is 100% custom fit to your specific facility's needs.

STEP 5: Communicate with Your Employees

Keep your employees informed about your hurricane preparedness plan and provide them with the information they need to stay safe.

Monitor weather forecasts and stay informed about any potential hurricanes that may affect your area.
