As your family entertainment center grows, having an emergency plan for various areas of your business is extremely important.

Emergency plans will ensure that your staff has the training they need, your facility is a safe place to visit, you’re always prepared, and you’re protecting your business from potential harms.

Does your staff know what to do in the event of a medical emergency? Do you have a plan for your inflatables when the power goes out? Or what about extraneous events that are out of your control and put your finances in question?

The truth is we could plan forever and there are going to be some things that we just can’t prepare for. Don’t let that stop you from improving your business today. Take what you’ve learned and apply it to your Company Emergency Plan—you’ll be glad you did.

Creating Your Emergency Plan

I call it an emergency plan as I picture one singular place where your many emergency plans will live. For some people it’s a binder, for others it’s a folder within Google Docs or on their hard drive.

Wherever you’d like your plan to live, let it live! Visit it often, share it with others, and tweak it as needed.
