There’s no more telling sign of winter then the first big snowstorm. When the icy air makes its way to our region and the weather reports are buzzing, it’s important to take some steps to prepare your home and/or business ahead of time.
It’s officially winter! If you’re from the northeast U.S., snowstorms are likely headed your way. Though they can be magical and exciting, storms and other bad weather can lead to power and other outages. Outages can quickly become dangerous, sometimes lasting days or longer.
Outages can affect entire communities. They can disrupt communication, water availability, and transportation; close businesses like grocery stores, gas stations, banks, and more; cause food and water contamination; and prevent the use of medical devices or medicine refrigeration.
As a business owner, being prepared and knowing what to do before, during, and after a power outage can help keep your staff and customers safe.
