As the NATO Summit in Chicago nears, many businesses in the downtown Chicago area have put in place special plans to safeguard their employees and facilities in case of violence or terrorism. Many businesses will just be shutting down for the days of the summit. This is in part because of how difficult it will be for their employees to get to work given the many public and private transportation limitations caused by the security precautions.
I have friends who live and work in downtown Chicago who warned us to reschedule a celebration we had planned for a non-profit group to another weekend because downtowners are planning to hunker down for the weekend and watch whatever unfolds on TV.
We also know that some businesses just don't have the luxury of closing and so are taking precautions including beefing up their emergency supplies in case they need to evacuate or shelter in place. As Chicago braces for possible violence or terrorism at the NATO Summit these businesses understand the need to be prepared. Some of these businesses and government agencies have turned to LifeSecure for help in their preparation.
Such events are good reminders of the need for businesses to be prepared every day for an unexpected emergency or disaster. Such preparation requires not only emergency plans but also emergency kits and supplies. We continue to see more and more businesses purchasing emergency preparedness supplies to keep their employees safe in case of an emergency or disaster. At the same time, many businesses remain unprepared for such possibilities.
