Our team helps dozens of Morganton businesses recover from disasters each year. Sometimes these incidents are relatively minor, but in other cases, there are thousands of dollars in damages. While it's not always possible to prevent these incidents, it's a good idea to take precautions. If you're not convinced you need to invest in planning and preparation, we've outlined a few things you should consider.

Why You Should Prepare for Disaster

1. More than 40% of businesses never reopen their doors after a disaster. According to FEMA, many businesses never reopen after a disaster, and those that do reopen have a good chance of shutting down within a year. Part of this is because many businesses don’t prepare for a potential disaster, and it ultimately leads to their end. The COVID-19 pandemic will likely lower your odds of success even further.

2. Disasters can slow—or even halt—operations. Even if your business survives a disaster, your operations can be severely impacted. As a result, this can cost you money and even affect your business relations!

3. Disasters can be costly to clean up and restore. In addition to potential revenue losses, disasters can be expensive to clean up. Most businesses have insurance, but if you don’t have the proper coverage, you could find the expenses will have to come out of your pocket!
