The 2024 Atlantic Hurricane season begins on June 1st,

and it’s expected to be a very active, above-average season with up to 23 named storms.


Read on for a continuation of our hurricane preparedness tips for quarter 2.

1. Get Your Business Ready for Storm Season

Now is the time to confirm and test emergency communication methods, including mass notification systems and social media channels. Make sure your established communication protocols for updating employees, customers, and suppliers during and after a hurricane have been tried and tested and that you provide employees with proper training and contact information for key personnel and emergency services.
In addition to the above, we also recommend the following before June 1st:


  • Download and share our 2024 Hurricane Guide with your employees.
  • Back up critical business data, including customer records, financial information, and essential documents.
  • Store backups in a secure off-site location or on cloud-based platforms.
  • Implement a plan for accessing and restoring critical data in case of business disruption.

2. Ensure You Have What You Need to Secure Your Property Now, Not Later

If your business doesn’t have impact-resistant windows, begin taking inventory of your current window coverings or purchasing new ones. Whether your business is situated within or outside of a flood zone, we recommend securing sandbags to redirect potential flooding or investing in one of the following alternatives:

  • Inflatable or Water-Filled Dams
  • Inflatable, Gel or Water-Filled Sandbags

One of the biggest mistakes Florida businesses make before a major storm is waiting until the last minute to stock up on storm shutters, pre-cut wood, and flooding supplies. Securing these items well in advance will alleviate your business from stock issues often experienced before a significant storm.

3. Disaster Recovery Tips for After the Storm

Preparing for the aftermath of the storm is just as important as preparing before a storm makes landfall. Whether sheltering in place or returning to your property after mandatory evacuation, stay alert for potential damage and dangers that may arise once the storm has passed, like subsequent rain which can cause additional flooding after a hurricane has ended.
