Hurricane preparedness meeting held in the Lowcountry

BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

While Hurricane Danny is brewing in the Atlantic Ocean, business leaders in the Lowcountry are getting ready in case Danny or any other tropical storm heads this way.

The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce hosted a forum Thursday morning. WTOC’s John Wetherbee, Emergency Management officials and the Red Cross shared tips with local organizations and business owners to help them prepare for a natural disaster. 

“You need to have a plan for your equipment. You need to have a plan for your office. You need to know how you will re-enter the marketplace. You need to know where your employees are going to go and how to keep your employees safe. You need to make sure you have operating cash to be prepared so whatever comes after the hurricane. There’s so much! Are your insurance policies up to date? That goes in to preparing your business if an emergency or a hurricane happens,” said Blakely Williams, Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce.
