Unexpected Weather Conditions

Recently, 7 feet of snow hammered the southern part of Buffalo, NY. With an average snow fall of over 3-5 inches an hour, many residents were left with little to no time to prepare. Click here to see the incredible photos.

This type of sudden event and those like last year's southeastern snow storm that left thousands stranded on major highways are excellent reminders that the time to prepare is always before the storm. Here are some tips to help you get ahead of an unexpected storm:
  • Hold a meeting to ensure you and your employees know how to respond and communicate in such an event. 
  • Update your recovery plan today, including important contact information.
  • Pack a winter emergency kit for your car. Encourage your employees to do the same.
