Power outages significantly impact business operations, and it's becoming more important than ever to be prepared. With 70 percent of businesses anticipated to lose power sometime in the next 12 months, there are some things that you can do to keep operating during an outage:
Organizations should create a continuity plan that factors in outages among other natural disasters. This will help staff understand who's in charge as well as what steps to take to recover quickly. Test out your plan to ensure that everything works properly.
It's also important to implement surge suppression and uninterruptible power supply units. Surge protectors ensure that any sudden change in voltage won't damage your equipment, while a UPS can seamlessly take over powering your critical systems in the event of an outage.
