How to Prepare:

  • Check the integrity of your data backups and/or data replication: make sure you have accessible copies of your company’s data that can be quickly restored if production information is destroyed or corrupted. Please check that your equipment is connected correctly to UPS/Generator power to ensure availability and protection.
  • Utilize the auto attendant application on your phone system: to keep your customers and employees aware of your company’s status, create a temporary storm message to provide pertinent information regarding how, where, and when your company will conduct business through the duration of the storm.
  • Take photos of equipment that can be damaged in the storm; servers, computers, call center equipment, etc…
  • Identify the essential personnel required to keep your business operational and determine who needs to stay on site.
  • Communicate with all employees: ensure they understand the expectations and roles around availability and communications for the duration of the storm and aftermath.
  • Activate remote working plans: Activate remote work plans before landfall, so employees are aware of offsite operations and remote working expectations.
