IBHS turns research and insights into actions policyholders may take to reduce costs associated with weather-related losses. EZ-PREP™ is on our policyholder-focused site, DisasterSafety.org. We encourage you to provide the link to policyholders via email, social channels, etc.
Businesses that want to stay in business need to have a plan to prepare for and respond to severe weather and other emergencies. Not having a plan—or having a poorly prepared or misunderstood plan—can lead to disorganized preparation or confused response, with the possibility of harm to employees, facilities, equipment or operations.
IBHS developed this severe weather emergency preparedness and response planning toolkit as a stand-alone guide, along with a customizable checklist, that any small business can use to build a plan for responding to operational disruptions.
This toolkit complements the IBHS OFB-EZ® program, which is a simple-to-use business continuity program that focuses on recovering after the initial emergency response.
