There is ONE big difference, however, and that is how you deal with and support employees before, during and after a hurricane.
Let’s discuss two scenarios next!
If your business is crucial to the well-being of first-responders and those not evacuating, you might consider keeping your business open as long as possible as the hurricane approaches.
It might be good to keep only a ‘skeleton crew of employees’ and send off those who want or need to leave to care of young children or elderly parents to do so or evacuate.
If you, however, are a business that provides services or goods not crucial in supporting those who will work during a hurricane like that list we mentioned above, consider closing early to send your employees home so they can prepare their home to keep their family safe!
Businesses who sell non-essential* items or provide non-essential* services like
might want to consider closing early.
Roads will get clogged up as people try to evacuate and the sooner people can leave, the better.
When in doubt whether you need to close your business or not (if you are new to the business for example) look at similar businesses in other locations (for us that would be Florida).
A proven track record for staying open or closing early will give you the data you need to make this decision.
When in doubt, err on the safe side and close up shop, or open up for limited hours as the hurricane approaches.
