Whether it’s an unexpected earthquake, a terrible house fire, or a devastating hurricane, disasters can strike at any time and can happen to anyone – they don’t discriminate.

Belfor Property Restoration recently conducted a survey to gauge levels of “preparedness” across across the Northeast, South, West, and Midwest, regions. Our survey revealed that 45% of respondents from across all four regions of the U.S. felt that they were not prepared for a disaster, and over half (52%) have taken no proactive steps to strengthen their property as a precaution. Perhaps even more surprisingly, 47% did not have insurance, and of those who did, over a third didn’t know if their insurance covered damages in case of a disaster. Based on these statistics, we wanted to offer some tips on how to strengthen your home to protect yourself and your loved ones, should the unexpected happen:

• Are you informed? Prepared?
• Has your business made a disaster plan?
• Are key personnel aware of the disaster plan?
• What are the building’s specific needs?

Don’t miss this unique and affordable opportunity to prepare your business for disaster; should it occur. Premier industry networking to follow our “Wisdom & Wine” presentation.
