June 1, 2011 marks the official beginning of hurricane season for 2011. Do you have your mold remediation, water extraction professional and roofer on speed dial? Business interruption insurance? Do your owners expect you to take precautionary steps that are not detailed in your management agreement, such as installing the storm shutters? Is your data being safely backed up each night offsite? Do you have a spare computer loaded, up to date and ready to go?
This year may bring “the big one”, so it is crucial that you have procedures in place and a disaster preparedness plan in case of possible damage or destruction of your rental units or your office. Having a plan could determine whether you still are in business after a major storm.
Ask yourself this simple question; “If my entire office were to be destroyed tomorrow, how soon could I be back up and running?”
