In our last blog, we talked about the importance of creating
and implementing a summer storm preparedness plan for your business as we head
into hurricane season.
Now, we would like to share our own emergency storm and hurricane
supply checklist for the necessary gear and equipment to keep you safe in the
event of a major storm:
· Flashlights and Extra Batteries for illuminating
small tasks or entire rooms in the event of a power outage.
· Heavy duty gloves for safety while removing
downed tree limbs or tending to branches with a chainsaw.
· Durable apparel like the “Chain Breakers”
Chainsaw Chaps for optimal safety while using chainsaws and other rotating saw
equipment, composed of a superior nylon chain breaking material.
· First aid kit to keep handy in a convenient and
accessible location. Be sure this is routinely stocked so that all medicines
and supplies have not expired.
· Tall rubber boots to stay dry and comfortable in
the event of flooding or water-logged areas.
During a storm, you want to be free to focus on your own safety
and the safety of those around you, not scrambling to try and find the gear
that is tucked away or may not be in stock. OBBCO Safety and Supply is your local one-stop-shop for all safety and supply needs for Chesapeake, greater Hampton Roads and the surrounding areas. We help keep you hurricane-ready
to prepare for those more common summer storms or heat waves. Be ready for the
unexpected by keeping the items you’ll need in a storm in stock before it hits.
