A lot has happened in the last week here in Colorado. We had rain that devastated theÂ state and there was a lot of damage. I was lucky that we only had a little flooding in our basement, so the damage was not too bad. OurÂ centerÂ was not impacted terribly either, and we were lucky to be able to keep things running smoothly.
Other parts of the state were not as lucky. As I watched the news I couldn’t help but think of the people who were impacted. The incident that occurred this last week made me realize that things can change from one day to another, and we cannot do anything to stop it. We also have no power over natural disasters, so it is important to have a bad weather backup plan.
Upon reflection, I realized that our company has helped a lot of big and small businesses get through some bad weather that maybe they were not expecting. At the beginning of the year, the East Coast was hit with a lot of snow and cold weather and our companyÂ helped others out of many jams. How? Well, let me tell you!
Some towing companies were overwhelmed with the amount of calls that they were receiving, because a lot of people were stuck on the roads due to the snow. These businesses had a higher call volume than normal and we were there 24/7 to help them take the calls.
In this recent Colorado storm we helped companies by also taking their calls when they were unable to make it into their place of work, or were overwhelmed by a large amount of calls.
If you are a big or small business, do you have a bad weather backup plan in the event of a natural disaster? Do you have someone that can take your calls when you are unable to? If you do not have someone that can take your calls at a momentâ€™s notice,Â give us a call! Learn how we can be your backup plan in this world where anything can change from one moment to the next.Â You canâ€™t afford not to have a bad weather backup plan.
If you do have a plan, share with us what it is, and maybe you can help others that are looking for ideas!
