Hurricane Irma Warehouse Prep

As Hurricane Irma approaches Florida, here are a few tips to prepare your warehouse:

  • If there is anything outside move it inside such as trash cans, furniture, pallets, debris, etc. if possible. If not, make sure it is secure.
  • Secure dumpster lids to remain closed.
  • Close and lock all overhead and personnel doors.
  • Unplug all electrical equipment and appliances, except for refrigeration.
  • Move equipment or furniture away from windows, overhead vents and skylights to avoid water damage.
  • If you have a truck that you will be leaving in the parking lot, move it in front of an overhead door, to provide extra protection.
  • Close the ridge vents on the roof to prevent blowing rain from coming in the building.
  • Before leaving the property, recheck the securing of all outdoor objects.
