Are You Prepared for Disaster to Strike Your Business? | SERVPRO® of North Fort Worth
Running a business requires a full-time commitment in addition to an infinite after hours to-do list, resulting in a role that is more equivalent to an overtime job. It’s reasonable that you’re carrying a heavy load. It’s really a lot of work from recruitment, bookkeeping, inventory management, and advertising, among many other things.
And if you are not prepared for the worst-case scenario, you risk jeopardizing all of your great accomplishments. You’ve worked really hard to reach this point, and that is about as compelling of an incentive as you could imagine for doing all that is possible to secure your business’ survival in the aftermath of a tragedy.
Reopening a company after a fire, severe storm or other natural catastrophe can be overwhelming, and a lot times impossible. According to FEMA, 40% of small businesses permanently close after a disaster, with a significant proportion of those that do reopen closing again within a year.
Having a plan for what to do in the case of a catastrophic incident might be the difference between survival and failure. Indeed, three-quarters of small businesses in the United States do not have a disaster plan. It’s logical that businesses who have a plan in place will have a better chance of recovery.
