Bitter temperatures can freeze pipes, creating catastrophic property losses and havoc in your life. Every year we have our fair share of cold weather and businesses can be caught unprepared, often resulting in the most costly losses. With proper winter weather preparation, you can minimize the impact of severe weather on your business.
Before winter weather occurs:
· Add emergency contacts to your emergency plan. Post the list at all telephones, and make copies for all employees to keep with them.
· Plan for maintenance personnel to properly monitor buildings during cold snaps, upping site visits and checking unoccupied areas of buildings.
· Properly mark the location of hydrants and sprinkler system post indicator valves for easy cleaning after heavy snow.
