5 Ways Businesses Can Prepare for Severe Weather
No matter where you are located, or what type of business you are in, severe weather in one form or another will eventually strike. A serious lightning storm, a tornado, or a hurricane can all have major impacts upon the operations of a business. A business impact analysis is a good way to prepare for that major weather event that may be just around the corner.
At Earth Networks, we use the most up-to-date professional weather software to educate you on weather events. Here are five actions you can take to mitigate your risks from severe weather.
