  Before The Event     During The Event     After The Event     Resources  

After the Event 

  • Secure the site and survey for damage and for safety hazards, such as live wires, leaking gas or flammable liquids, poisonous gases, and damage to foundations or underground piping.
  • Take pictures of your facility inside and out to aid in insurance or tax credit claims.
  • Make temporary repairs as needed to prevent looting and/or any further damage.
  • Before restoring service, check all utilities. If you have any question about the condition of your utilities, call the appropriate company.
  • Do not turn on computer equipment if there are indications of low voltage power fluctuations, low air conditioning output, water under raised floor, broken windows or damaged equipment.
  • The Broward County Office of Economic and Small Business Development has established a network of disaster relief facilities identified as Business Recovery Centers, to provide information, services and access to financial assistance programs.
