Preparing Your Power Grid for Natural Disasters

June 10, 2020

As a responsible business owner or manager, you are constantly looking for ways to protect your assets and maintain the well being of your staff.

Whether it is through continuing education, extra safety measures, or regular evaluations, you’re doing your best to make sure you’re protected against harm.

While it’s fairly straightforward to prepare for the effects of aging materials, some damage may feel out of your control. When mother nature strikes against your assets, is there really any way to protect yourself against the inevitable? Or are you doomed to suffer the damage of natural disasters and pick up the pieces later on?

Here’s what you need to know.

Risk Factors

It’s no secret that natural disasters put your business and your assets at risk. Particularly when it comes to your power grid, there may be additional factors to consider.

Even if some of your business’ operations are halted in the face of a natural disaster, it is crucial that your power grid remains viable for the safety of your business. Without a power grid, you become particularly vulnerable.

In the event of a natural disaster, extra forces are applied to infrastructure. Whether it is due to wind, water, or debris, your infrastructure is bound to take a hit during any significant storm.

No amount of preparation can stop a storm from happening. Even so, there are proactive measures you can take to lessen (or entirely avoid) the damage that a natural disaster can cause to your power grid.

Proactive Measures

The best way to avoid disastrous results of tragic environmental events is by taking a proactive approach to assets management and ensuring the structural integrity of your infrastructure.  Many times storm damage is the result of existing weakness present in an asset.
