Pre-Storm Preparation

  • Prepare a stocked storm kit and an evacuation plan and encourage your employees to do the same. To help build your kit, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has a detailed checklist available.
  • Eversource also has a storm safety checklist available to help you prepare and stay safe before, during and after a storm.
  • Have a battery-powered radio available.
  • Make sure you have fresh batteries that are the correct size for the flashlights and radio.
  • Be sure there’s a first aid kit in your business.
  • Have extra gasoline on hand if you own an electric generator.
  • Make a list of emergency phone numbers, or program them into your cell phone. Handy numbers to have include employees’ home and cell number, employees’ emergency contacts, suppliers and vendors.
  • Store important documents such as, tax records, insurance documents that outline coverage and deductibles, and other legal and financial documents, in a safe place.
  • List and photos of physical assets for potential insurance claims.

Prep for Hurricanes and Extreme Weather

For more severe storms such as hurricanes, tropical storms or blizzards, you might want to take the following precautions a day or two ahead of the storm impacting your area.

  • Tape, board or shutter windows and glass doors.
  • Secure all outdoor objects that could become airborne by high winds.
  • Wedge sliding glass doors to prevent them from lifting from their tracks.
  • In the winter, close off unused rooms to conserve heat. Open curtains and shades to let sunlight in; close them at night.
  • Plug sensitive computer and electronic equipment into surge suppressors or surge protectors. A surge suppressor diverts excessive electrical energy away from your equipment to an electrical "ground."
