A disaster can strike with little to no warning, and can mean complete destruction to your building. Knowing how to properly prepare for any disaster can help to ensure that your building and tenants stay safe during a disaster. Keep these disaster preparedness tips in mind to be ready for any tragedy.

  • Check the structure of your building – at least once a year, hire a professional to take a look at the condition of your building to ensure that it is structurally sound. Make improvements or repairs as necessary to keep your building as stable as possible to ensure that it can withstand any disaster.
  • Think about fire safety – not only should you think of the immediate damage that a disaster can cause, but you should also consider any secondary damage, including fire damage. Make sure your building has the right fire safety procedures and systems in place to reduce the risk of a total loss caused by a secondary fire.
  • Insurance coverage – after a disaster hits your building, you want to make sure that you are covered with the right insurance policies. Before a catastrophe hits, look over all of your insurance policies to ensure that you have the right amount of protection for any peril.
  • Prepare your tenants – make sure all of your tenants know how to stay safe in case of any unfortunate situation. Place emergency escape plans throughout the property, and hold at least one emergency drill a year. The better prepared your tenants are, the less likely they are to get injured.

Having the right work order system in place can help to ensure that your property management team is able to get your property up and running as soon as possible. For all of your workflow needs, contact Landport Systems in Walnut Creek, California.
