You never know when an emergency will strike during business hours. In the event of a natural or man-made disaster, you should have an established business emergency plan to follow in order to properly assist your employees. Is there enough food and water? Should an evacuation happen? Should employees stay in the building for shelter?
Preparing for an emergency can seem like an intimidating task or one that you can put off for a while, but it’s an important one, especially for businesses. Developing an emergency response program can mitigate risk for your employees during a disaster, and ensure you have the proper resources in your toolkit to take care of your employees.

Importance of Business Emergency Preparedness
Having enough food during an emergency is vital to survival. In times of crisis when resources are scarce, you’ll want to make sure the food you have is fast, easy, healthy, and satisfying.
Easy Meal’s meal kits encompass all of these traits. We offer familiar, great-tasting dishes like Granola with Blueberries, Italian Style Pepper Steak, and Lasagna that can be prepared in minutes with minimal resources. All you need is hot water (or cold water with different preparation instructions) and you’ll be ready to serve comforting, satisfying meals to your employees. We offer different size kits including ones that will feed 25 people three meals for three days, and ones that contain 100 servings of a single entree.
Our Core Meal Kits are rounded out with healthy sides such as vegetables and crackers. We also offer an Accessory Kit that includes bonus beverage and snack items.
Emergency Compliance for Businesses
Local and state regulations and laws define emergency preparedness requirements, and it’s important that businesses follow these guidelines in order to meet compliance.
Typically, businesses that are heavily involved in critical infrastructure industries must have some sort of emergency procedures in place. Be sure to research the laws that are specific to your municipality and state when preparing for an emergency.
Even if your business isn’t required to have an action plan for emergencies, it’s still smart to prepare for a disaster. Unexpected incidents or catastrophes such as tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, flooding, power outages, and other crises can happen at any moment, so it’s best to be prepared to tackle the situation.
A proper disaster preparedness plan for businesses starts with meal planning. Make sure your employees are well-fed and cared for during a crisis with the help of Easy Meal.
