EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS CHECKLIST
In order to help protect your business in emergency situations -- such as natural disasters, acts of terrorism, civil unrest, etc. -- please consider taking the following precautions to ensure you're properly prepared:
  • Sign up for the BID's Emergency Text Message Service HERE.

  • Monitor local news and prepare your immediate area with enough time to leave before the event begins (if possible).

  •  Review your insurance policy and contact your insurance company, if needed, for proper coverage.

  •  Create a current inventory list to have available for the insurance company and take photos of the business before the event.

  •  Clear the outside area of any unsecured items that can be used to damage property or break windows/door.

  • Secure the business by locking doors, gates, windows, garage doors, loading docks, etc.… and ensure door locks and roll up gate locks are of good quality.

  • If possible, apply graffiti coating to gates, and walls to minimize graffiti damage.

  • Ensure security/intrusion alarms are set.

  • Ensure Fire Life Safety System (Fire Alarm) is active.

  •  Ensure security video surveillance system is running so that images can be provided to Law Enforcement.

  • If possible, and without damaging equipment, shut off gas lines (if applicable).

  • Secure high-value inventory items from displays, and minimize inventory at the location if possible, by moving it to a secured location.

  •  Shut off any excessive lights, music, and/or anything that may draw attention to your business.

  •  Board storefront windows with plywood of at least ¼ inch.

  • If you choose to stay inside your business during emergency situations, (highly not recommended), please notify your local Law Enforcement agency and let them know there are people in the business.

  •  Be aware of your surroundings, and if at any time you become unsafe, contact your local law enforcement agency immediately.
