As has become an all too common occurrence in central California during the hottest parts of the summer season, wildfires are once again burning and causing massive amounts of damage.1 Despite the best efforts of public safety officials to keep people and structures safe, there will once again be an unfortunate amount of damage done to the area. In some cases, the fires will displace people from their homes, and businesses will be forced to different locations. In some cases, homes and offices will be lost entirely.
In the event of a disaster such as a wildfire, one of the first questions asked by those affected is, “How do we rebuild from here?” In many cases, construction companies are integral to helping the community get back on track. But what happens if those companies are affected by the catastrophe as well? Missed opportunities, not just for more business, but also to help in a time of need. As such, it is imperative that your construction company be in a position to get operational as soon as possible.
