Infographic: Carwash emergency preparedness

TAMPA and NEW YORK — This infographic details how carwashes can prepare for natural disasters.

TAMPA and NEW YORK — Carwashes, like most small businesses, can be especially vulnerable during natural disasters. Hurricanes, floods and tornadoes can cause structural and equipment damage, which is extremely costly to repair or replace. As such, all carwashes should have emergency preparedness procedures in place.

In honor of September being National Preparedness Month, the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) and the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.) have created an infographic that displays the steps your carwash business can take to get prepared for a season of unpredictable weather, according to a press release.

“Taking time now to prepare saves money later,” said Gail Moraton, business resiliency manager for IBHS. “We know many small businesses don’t reopen after disaster strikes. Planning ahead for continuity of the physical property and finances can help companies reopen more quickly, stay in business and weather the potential effects of a disaster.”

The infographic guides the reader through a series of chronological steps to take before, during and after the inclement weather. Make sure your carwash is prepared for any disaster.
