Does your community have a Disaster Relief Plan?
With the increased number of natural weather disasters, it’s more important than ever to have an emergency response plan in place for your apartment community. South Carolina recently experienced the sudden and surprising damage that can strike when they experienced flooding during Hurricane Joaquin. There are also many other risks that must be prepared for such as:
- A building fire
- Area wildfires
- Water/wind damage from a hurricane/tropical storm/El Niño
- Damage from a tornado
- Isolated residents during extreme blizzards, especially senior residents
- Live Shooters/Terrorism
- Residents doing crazy things like this, in Portland.
