This year Rhode Islanders were warned of one of the busiest hurricane and tropical storm seasons in recent history. Experts note that due to significant sea level rise and coastal development, tropical storms need not make a direct hit to wreak havoc on our region with storm surge and flooding. Now, during the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, emergency planning presents additional challenges for everyone which makes it more important than ever to have a solid plan. Public health and emergency response professionals have advice to help you safely prepare, evacuate, and shelter for severe storms while protecting yourself and others from COVID-19.
It is very important to make a disaster survival plan for your business. FEMA reports that 40% of businesses do not reopen after a disaster and another 25% fail within the following year. Small businesses are particularly at risk because they may have all of their operations in one location that is damaged or destroyed.
