As many parts of our nation are recovering from Category 4 Hurricane Harvey, and others are preparing for Category 5 Hurricane Irma, businesses are beginning to prioritize emergency response planning. After a tropical storm or hurricane’s path is projected, an emergency plan should be immediately implemented. While protecting its people should be a company’s first priority, goods and inventory must also be a factor.
Organizations may want to consider providing shelter for equipment. Temporary warehouses are durable, climate-controlled structures that are engineered to survive within extreme weather patterns. Built with strong tension fabric and installed with stable anchors, temporary storage buildings can withstand abnormally high winds. These storage spaces can be installed atop any surface, and the size of the structure is customizable to fit any project’s needs.
After natural disasters strike, it may take years for businesses to get back on their feet. Modern fabric structures are durable enough to last for many years, and require minimal maintenance, enabling seamless business continuity. They’re also portable, should you need to relocate your shelter.
If your office operates within the path of a major storm and flooding is a possibility, you may need to transport your equipment and/or inventory to higher ground to minimize damages. You might also consider setting up a mobile office or relief tents in a safer location.
