Worldwide Power Products Recommends Businesses To Be Prepared For 2012 Hurricane Season

27-Jul-2012 | News-Press Release

Worldwide Power Products recommends businesses to be prepared for 2012 hurricane season. The Atlantic hurricane season kicked off on June 1 and continues through the end of 2012, with the potential to affect the Caribbean, southeast and northeast United States. While the season thus far is quiet–and is forecast to be a less active hurricane season than 2011–it’s always a great time to make sure your business is prepared for a hurricane.

Preparing your business for hurricanes requires data and records management and implementing an infrastructure that can keep a businesses running in case of emergency. Prepare a hurricane operations manual for your business:

• The main priority has to be safety. And so make sure your entire staff will evacuate to nearby safe place to wait out the storm.
• At the beginning of every hurricane season, buy plenty of canned food and water jugs so that your staff can keep on powering on despite the damages a hurricane may bring.
• Have access to copies of important, financial data—nothing derails your business like a loss of information.
• Have a ready supply of generators that can keep the power on, to prevent data loss on our servers.

Waiting until the last minute to prepare means you may be unable to get some of the equipment your business needs to stay running, such as diesel or natural gas generators that can power the electricity, prevent sensitive business data loss from a break in power, and keep the air conditioning flowing after a hurricane. Generators offer an uninterrupted power supply that can keep appliances and machinery working during a storm, minimizing production losses.

Hurricanes are unpredictable. If the storm strikes, it can bring flood waters, winds, and heavy rains that keep people inside. If you’re not prepared for the storm, you’ll have trouble getting help when you need it. Finding diesel generators in stock and ready for immediate delivery to power your business can be difficult to impossible. We offer short-term generator rental that can help get your business back on its feet after a storm strikes. We have an ample supply of flexible, portable generators. Whether buy a generator for sale or procure a generator for rent , you can get back to work after the storm, minimizing business losses and workflow delays.

While generators can be costly, they prove their worth when natural disasters such as hurricanes strike. A severe hurricane can knock out power for weeks, as Hurricane Katrina did in 2005. A stop in workflow or loss of business data is sure to set you back significantly more than the cost of the generator. At Worldwide Power Products, we offer new and used diesel generators for home and business at a wide range of price points.

Have you ever had to stop work due to natural disaster? Did you go back and calculate lost revenue and damages? If yes, what steps did you take to better prepare? Having access to a backup power generator is the only surefire way to avoid the potential financial losses and personal endangerment caused by disastrous outages. If you are looking for quality new and used generators available for purchase or rent, or if you would like any additional information on this topic, please call us at 713-434-2300 or e-mail us at
