How To Operate Your Business During a Power Outage: 3 Tips

11/27/2018 (Permalink)

One of the most common issues is a loss of power, especially during thunder and wind storms. Dealing with a power outage can be frustrating, but there are a few strategies you can use to continue daily operations when bad weather tries to interrupt them.

1. Be Prepared With a Generator

Having a portable generator on hand can help you keep your business operating during a storm. This can be especially useful when you have a store full of customers. A generator can keep the lights, heat or air conditioner on. If you own a restaurant, a generator can keep your fridge and freezers running to avoid food spoilage.

2. Find Nearby Wi-Fi

If you own a small business, you can move your operations to a nearby café or coffee shop to take advantage of free Wi-Fi services. Consider using the downtime to hold a meeting there or catch up on invoices. You can also contact a storm damage and cleanup service from your laptop if your phone service is down and you do not have access to a cell phone.

3. Connect at Home

If a power outage forces you to temporarily shut down your building, you can save time by working from home and connecting with your employees from there. Have your social media manager work on new infographics and inform your followers of the temporary closure. Your content writers and bloggers can write from home and send you their articles via email. While this is not the most ideal way to operate, it may help you avoid a complete shutdown until the power returns.
