Attention Businesses: Bomb Cyclones are the new Reality


We haven’t heard the term bomb cyclone before this year and somehow we are now hearing it more than once in a year.

In February we told you how to prepare for a bomb cyclone.

Here are some tips which could save your life and business:

  • Charge all laptops, cellphones and any other devices that use rechargeable batteries. Think about purchasing a backup charger and get that ready, too.
  • Make sure your vehicle’s gas tank is at least half full.
  • Make sure you know where your fuse box is located and how to turn the power and circuit breakers on and off.  Mapping and labeling each circuit breaker to its relative appliance or room is also a good idea.
  • At least three gallons of water per person.
  • At least a three-day supply of nonperishable food per person.
  • Prescribed medications to last an extended outage.
  • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio.
  • Flashlights and extra batteries.
  • First aid kit.
  • Whistle to signal for help.
  • Pet supplies.
  • A complete change of clothing and footwear for each person.
  • Bedding.
  • Important family documents.
  • Extra clothes and blankets.

Businesses should also charge devices, but they should also have a proper power protection system, as well as a generator to power servers and other systems and lights.  In addition, companies need to ensure they have backups of their data, following industry best practices.  They should have a separate system set up in another location, which will ensure business continuity power and systems are down at the primary site.  Cloud services are a great way to ensure businesses remain operational, regardless of where employees can work from.

We suggest you work with a top MSP to ensure your business has a continuity plan. Ideally, this plan should also be tested regularly to ensure everything is working well.

Quite often, business learns they have a faulty plan when they have an outage.

At that point it is too late too address.

Please, stay safe and secure and prepare your family and business so you can weather the next storm safely.

Here is more about this bomb cyclone so you know what is coming.
