While business continuity insurance can be a key resource for small businesses, many policies are only triggered by evacuation alerts or orders. Some types of hazards can be a severe threat to business continuity, but will not prompt evacuations, rendering the insurance ineffective at preventing a loss of income. If your planning includes business continuity insurance, we recommend a careful inspection of the terms and conditions of your policy to ensure that planning can take into account what is or is not covered. As insurance terms can change over time, it is advisable to examine your policy on a regular basis. Contact your insurance company to clarify any questions that arise.
