Train employees well. A flood is but one type of emergency you should plan, prepare, and train for. Use your new or updated flood plan as part of your emergency response training. Conduct a walkthrough of the facility, use photographs, and show your step-by-step list to instruct employees. It’s important to go over written plans to keep them fresh in people’s minds. Training is the one time to bring all employees up-to-date on what is expected of them during an emergency. Hopefully, when the crisis starts, they can put into practice what they learned in the past training programs. It is important to periodically repeat these exercises to account for employee turnover.
