Lights Out: What to Do When Your Business Loses Power
While we know installing a back-up emergency generator is the best way for businesses to prepare for power outages, we realize some don’t have one. In that case, you should certainly plan for that investment.
Meanwhile, outages can happen for any number of reasons – potentially wreaking havoc on your bottom line. In the event of such an emergency, rest assured you can rely on our team of experts to come to your rescue.

Here are some other tips to prepare for a power outage at your business:
1 Have an emergency plan in place.
2 Our commercial electricians can install emergency lights that turn on when the power goes out.
3 Depending on the size of the building, you may want to evacuate employees or designate a well-lighted and ventilated area to gather.
4 If there are no windows in your office, have flashlights on hand to navigate dark hallways or staircases.
5 Keep a battery-powered radio or TV to monitor emergency news and announcements, and have at least one phone that doesn’t require power.
6 Use safety-certified surge protectors and battery backup systems for critical computer systems, which will help protect sensitive equipment and help prevent computer crashes. Also back up data frequently.
7 Emergency supplies, such as flashlights, batteries, and first aid kits, should be kept handy.
