Reserving Temporary Assets for Post-Hurricane Recovery
An essential step in disaster planning is determining which assets and resources you need to have in order to restart operations. However, if a disaster impacts your community, attaining those resources within a reasonable timeline could be extremely difficult. To help make things easier for your team, Cotton recommends having a trusted vendor that can source and deliver assets for you.
For the past 25 years, Cotton has helped secure emergency equipment and labor for clients in various industries, including the energy sector, petroleum, education, and more. As soon as a tropical storm or hurricane is identified, our teams reach out to clients in the storm’s path to discuss what assets they predict they’ll need while their facilities are inaccessible. We then reach out to our industry partners to secure the assets and plan the deployment. If time and weather permits, we’ll begin setting up our crews and assets in a nearby town so we can quickly deliver your solutions after the storm has passed.
MAKE A LIST OF NECESSARY RESOURCES
As you create the list, consider these questions:
- What are some tools and resources your team needs to operate on a daily basis?
- Will you need backup power to operate certain machinery?
- Do you need to provide your workers with a place to sleep, shower, and eat?
- How will you provide food and potable water to your staff?
- Do you need WiFi to run your business effectively?
- Are you going to need a temporary office in a remote location?
CONTACT COTTON LOGISTICS OR YOUR TRUSTED VENDOR(S)
The sooner you consult with your vendor and provide them with your list, the better chance they’ll have of finding the items. If you wait until the last minute to request assets, you’ll most likely experience substantial delays that could affect your revenue and customer relationships.
