With the recent spate of storms and the threat of snow incoming, preparing your business for wild weather is an important step. Wind, rain and snow can impact your property, your staff and your security, but there are some measures you can put in place to help.
Maintain access to your business
Keeping your business open can be a challenge when wild weather hits, especially if travel disruption impacts you or your staff. Using a key holding company means that if you, or your key holders, are struggling to get in, a professional security officer can open your business so employees who can make it in can get straight to work. They can even lock up again at the end of the day, saving you from closing your business completely.
Prepare for false alarms
Howling winds can cause all sorts of issues with alarm systems. In fact, when the bad weather hits, we often see our call-outs increase due to an influx of false alarms. Enlisting the help of a professional security company who offer an alarm response service means you can stay safe and warm if your alarm is activated. Using an alarm response service means a professional security officer will attend and inspect your business premises, making sure everything is safe and secure before re-setting the alarm and sending you a report.
Expect storm damage
With a storm comes damage, so budget accordingly or make sure your insurance policy covers it. If the damage causes a false alarm, or you have mobile patrols in place, one plus is that any issues will be found and dealt with quickly and efficiently. Trained security officers, like ours, will work with local companies to make sure your business is safe and secure.
