North Carolina made national news this past week when a contractor mistakenly drove a steel pylon through two power transmission lines during bridge construction thereby disrupting power to the seven towns on the Outer Banks. Residents and business owners were without power for almost a week and the revenue loss to local businesses counts in the millions.
We are so accustomed to things working as they should that we often do not have a plan in place for when the unforeseen happens.
At AnswerHero, we provide a critical back-up in times of man-made and natural disasters.
Before the storm.
Before the evacuation.
Before the power outage.
What do you need to do to minimize loss?
- Do you have your important documents in a safe place?
- Do you keep your car fueled?
- Do you know the phone numbers of loved ones or have them written down (these days many people rely on their cell phones and don’t see the point of memorizing numbers, but when you have no cell signal, who are you going to call?)
- Do you have a call answering service that can answer client calls when you can’t?
Take some time today to put your emergency plans in place so that you may have peace-of-mind later.
Call AnswerHero if your business relies on current and potential clients being able to reach you.
