Storm season is especially trying to businesses in the Southwest Florida region as we experience lightning, high winds and sometimes damaging flood waters. Making a checklist is a preliminary step to take to adequately prepare for a storm. Follow these helpful tips below on what to include on your checklist.

In the event of a Hurricane Evacuation notice:

  1. Prior to the start of hurricane season, determine the roles of each employee with regards to responsibilities in case of emergency.
  2. Develop a plan for communication.
  3. Turn off and unplug all computers, monitors and printer devices
  4. If you have servers managed by Connect SWFL, do not unplug before contacting us.
