NABC Emergency Preparedness Brochure Offers Essential Advice

In the aftermath of the horrific hurricane season of 2005, the National Auto Body Council (NABC) produced, "Are You Prepared?"-an emergency preparedness brochure written specifically for collision repair facilities and their employees. The eight-page, full-color document is generously illustrated and includes such tools as an emergency preparedness insurance coverage review and supplies checklist.

Recent tragic events in America confirm that the need for this kind of information is as strong as ever. The outcomes of tornadoes in Iowa, floods in Wisconsin and fires in California remind our industry that disaster preparedness is a personal responsibility. Repairers simply cannot hope that an outside entity like an insurance company or a government agency will make a business or family whole again. Business owners need to be accountable for the safety and well-being of their businesses, their hard-earned assets, and their employees.

NABC created "Are You Prepared?" to help collision repairers in the event of such crises. It outlines the steps necessary to prepare for the worst, which could make it the most valuable document you own. The information in this brochure can make a real difference for your business, your family and our country, and thanks to NABC they are still available.

If you are interested in the NABC emergency preparedness brochure, copies can be downloaded at www.autobodycouncil.org. They are also available in bulk to be shipped, in which case all applicable shipping expenses will apply.
