It really doesn't matter where you live: at one time or another, you're going to deal with the threat of severe weather. Whether it's hurricanes in South Florida, wildfires in California, heat advisories in Arizona, or tornadoes in Kansas, you must be responsible to prepare your facility for the worst of the worst.
Putting it off until next week or hoping your building will be spared is irresponsible. It's part of your job, and an important part.
How will your buildings stand up to severe weather? Have you planned ahead? Preparing your buildings, employees, and tenants for extreme weather situations is no longer a matter of wishful thinking - it's serious and absolutely necessary (Buildings).
As you consider these questions, take heart.
First, remember that you're not in this alone. Facility managers around the country have been dealing with these issues for many years. They've accumulated a wealth of knowledge that's available for your benefit. With a bit of forward planning and careful research, you'll be able to benefit from their expertise.
Second, keep yourself on track. Once you've done your research, form a schedule to help you implement your plan in a timely and achievable way. Without a timeline, you'll either try to accomplish everything as quickly as possible and thereby become overwhelmed, or you'll find that the busyness of life keeps you from completing your plan in a timely way.
Third, keep current. Even after your plan is in place, you're still not off the hook. Given enough time, new information leads to new developments. Regular evaluations will keep you up-to-date on the best and most effective ways to keep your facilities protected in the event of severe weather.
Important Note: Don't forget to install sets of corner guards before you undertake any serious preparation! They'll keep your interior corners and vulnerable edges safe from any potential incidental scrapes, scratches, or other damage.
