22 May Getting down to business – with commercial impact windows and doors
Small business owners are the backbone of any community. And, when that community happens to be in South Florida, being a small business owner comes with the added responsibility of protecting that business from the damaging winds of a hurricane. As a locally owned and operated small business, Master Builders Windows and Doors of Boca Raton understands.
And, as trusted experts in the field of storm protection, we can help you protect your livelihood with impact windows and doors that meet the toughest standards in the state of Florida.
As a small business owner, there are a number of resources you can draw on to help you put together an effective plan for hurricane season.
- The South Florida Regional Planning Council has developed a guide to assist you with planning and with recovery, if a hurricane should make landfall and impact your business. Their Hurricane Survival Guide for Small Businesses covers everything from disaster supply checklists to evacuation information.
- The Florida Chamber of Commerce points out that Florida offers a number of resources that can help small businesses cope with an extended shutdown in the case of a hurricane. As an example, they point to “AppRiver’s Digital Disaster Preparedness Program, a service designed to protect and preserve email traffic. The cloud-based service averts email downtime by redirecting an organization’s email to one of AppRiver`s secure data centers in the event of a natural catastrophe. Once the danger passes and connectivity is restored, AppRiver will forward all outage-period email back to the company`s server, free of charge.”
