May 31, 2018 7:31:07 PM / by Quad City Safety

Are you confident you have everything in place for a weather emergency? Things like a disaster plan, proper signage, clearly defined evacuation routes and first aid? Are you positive you and your crew will be safe before, during and after the storm?

Take a walk around your facility and think about how you plan for disaster. Go ahead. We’ll be here when you get back.


Did you happen to spot some areas that could pose a problem in an emergency? Well, now’s the time to fix it.

We have a tendency to think natural disasters only happen in places far, far away. You know that’s far from the truth. You’ve seen it happen too many times. You’ve seen the devastation. We all just have a nasty little habit of pushing it to the back of our mind. Today’s your chance to get ready for whatever comes your way.


Make sure your entire facility knows what to do in a disaster situation.

The best way you can protect your staff and your facility is with a plan.

It’s not a bad idea to ask for outside help if you get overwhelmed. There’s a lot to consider when creating an emergency disaster plan. And,you don’t want to overlook anything.  

The important thing is to communicate your plan to others and practice, practice, practice. Hold regular drills so that everyone knows what to do when nature calls. That way, your team can protect themselves and look out for one another — so everyone goes home safe.
