The recent deluge is no aberration. Statistically, businesses are more likely to flood than burn down. Although floods can’t be predicted, they can be prepared for, especially for those of you whose businesses are located in flood plains and high vulnerability areas. This Checklist will help frame the steps your company should take to make adequate preparations for a flood and respond if one occurs.
HOW TO USE THIS TOOL
The Checklist, which is combined from models from the US Small Business Administration and Federal Emergency Management Agency, outlines activities companies should take:
- In planning for a flood
- Before a flood
- During a flood
- After a flood.
Use this Checklist to assess the adequacy of your own flood preparations.
