This year has already seen some severe flooding along with a number of watches and warnings. Before flood waters approach your self-storage facility, make sure to put an evacuation plan in place to ensure your personal safety and that of your employees and customers.
In addition, it is important to conduct staff training on a regular basis to familiarize managers with the evacuation plan.
Next week, we will review the flood warning system and discuss the differences between flood watches and flood warnings.
