HURRICANE SAFTEY TIPS

Personally, you’re ready for Hurricane Dorian… but how about your business technology? It’s not too late to protect your computers and data from the impending storm. Here are some quick steps you should take NOW to minimize possible downtime due to storm damage.

  • Stay in a secure room away from windows.
  • Do not use the phone (landline), candles, or any open flame.
  • Monitor weather and civil service bulletins on either regular or NOAA radio.
  • Have supplies on hand, especially water. Also keep medicines and medical supplies close by.
