Natural Disasters - Protecting Your Store and Your Employees

Tori Zinger

For those whose dealerships are in Irma's path, what types of preparations to you take in anticipation of something like this? How do you best protect both your real property (the dealership building itself) and your inventory?

In addition, what about your most important asset, your employees? I know that when I lived in Charleston, SC, last year, at least one dealership paid each of their commissioned employees around $1K-1500 when they had to evacuate for Hurricane Matthew. This was to ensure the employees were still able to feed their families and pay their bills while unable to work. For those dealerships that are in regions especially susceptible to natural disasters, whether it be tornadoes, hurricanes, or what have you, does your business keep any type of continuing fund for this type of thing?
