In today’s business world, randomness and uncertainty due to traumatic weather phenomena are playing ever increasing roles in the success or failure of businesses. Weather disasters rank among some of the most difficult situations for businesses to carry on through. This is because, aside from the long term destruction following a natural disaster, they are virtually impossible to prepare for. Preparation to the best possible level is paramount for a business to survive the next hurricane or wildfire, and sometimes something as simple as a cover can save the valuable equipment necessary to keep a company up and running.
In addition to the stresses and rigors of just running a business, it is more important than ever before to have a plan for natural disasters. The impact of any natural disaster can be huge, even devastating, and can be fatal for many establishments. In fact, according to the Institute for Business and Home Safety, roughly one-fourth of companies do not reopen after a major disaster.
