Storm Readiness Plans for Eugene Businesses?

Our South Eugene and Florence teams respond to storm damage emergencies every winter in Eugene. Here are some tips from the National Weather Service for things you can do before winter and during a winter storm:

Before a Winter Storm Strikes

  • Enable wireless emergency alerts on your cell phone? 
  • Purchase a weather alert radio that broadcasts emergency alerts from the National Weather Service, preferably with a hand crank
  • Communicate the emergency preparedness plan to all employees
  • To help prevent freezing, keep the building’s internal thermostat always set to at least 55°F (12.8°C)? 
  • For small commercial properties, open cabinet doors and let all faucets drip during extremely cold weather to prevent water from freezing inside the pipes 
  • If you have self-regulating heating cables on your roof, ensure they are turned on before the event 
  • If you have services with contractors scheduled, follow up with them to confirm their services. This could be for snow removal or the delivery of a portable generator rental.
  • Ensure you have plenty of fuel for generators  

During a Storm

  • If the alarm system loses power while the building cannot be occupied, arrange for alternate security 
  • Update status of operations on:  
    • Emergency hotlines 
    • Intranet  
    • Website
  • Social media 
  • Designate times for key staff members to call into conference calls for situation overviews
