Disaster Preparedness and Management
In the event of a hurricane impacting any of our Texas coastal regions, the Frost Properties Management Team must be prepared to remediate any property damage so our financial centers can open as soon as possible after a hurricane event. Frost is very adamant about opening quickly and maintaining normal business hours to serve our customers.
Risk Evaluation and Business Continuity
Proactive risk evaluation avoids the high cost of doing nothing.
Having an active emergency plan is critical during flooding.
ASIS Disaster Preparation Guide
This Disaster Preparation Guide was created with your business and its employees in mind. Human resource
managers will find it helpful as an employee handout, and management will find the training and testing information invaluable as a starting point to securing company facilities and the employees inside.

PRSM Disaster Planning and Management Toolkit
Welcome to the PRSM Disaster Planning and Management Toolkit. The retail environment is constantly impacted by external factors, changes, and events – whether from natural disasters, such as tornadoes, earthquakes, storms, etc., or from the man-made variety. A Retail FM can find themselves monitoring the turbulence caused by an approaching tropical storm or hurricane one day, to dealing with an end of the summer wildfire the next, to dealing with the aftermath of a violent store incident the next.
