Because you can never be too prepared, be sure to develop a comprehensive staff contact list, including cell phone numbers, home numbers and personal email addresses. Some staff may not wish to receive cell phone calls outside of office hours, so your list should clearly note which numbers are to be called in emergencies only. It may also be helpful to implement a contact tree so all employees know who to expect an emergency call from, and if they in turn need to call someone else on the list.

Easy Office Phone, a leading provider of award-winning cloud-based business phone services, recently released tips for minimizing communications downtime during natural disasters. Be it hurricane, tornado, flood or blizzard, it’s crucial for companies to take steps to minimize any disruption in communications with employees or customers due to weather-related events.

“In the event of a disaster, business owners have even more to worry about than most people,” says Adam Simpson, CEO of Easy Office Phone. “They have to take care of themselves and their families like everyone else, but they’re also responsible for ensuring their staff will be safe and their business will stay as close to 100 percent operational as possible. That means taking precautions to safeguard their communications systems.”
