Why Is Emergency Preparedness Important for Hotels?
Emergency preparedness is essential for the hospitality industry and important for hotels of any type and size. If your hotel suffers a localized flood, fire, power outage or other crisis you can’t handle, it could mean going out of business. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) estimates an alarming 40-60% of small businesses, including hotels, will close permanently following a disaster. A hotel emergency preparedness plan from URI gives you the tools you need to tip the scales in your favor.
With a plan established, you can take advantage of multiple benefits to speed business recovery after a natural disaster, including:
- Improved safety: Disaster plans establish employee roles and explore multiple scenarios to create safe routes for controlled guest evacuation.
- Business continuity: Your disaster plan will outline all the steps you can take to get your hotel running as soon as possible.
- Reduced premiums: Reducing your risk with a hotel emergency preparedness plan can lead to savings on your insurance premiums.
