Winter is Coming

Posted By Jeff Dover, CRFP, RFMA, Thursday, August 07, 2014
Hello RFMA members,

It's almost 100 degrees again here in sunny Dallas. Hard to believe winter is right around the corner. Seems strange but now is the time to start thinking about preparing your midwest and northern stores for the upcoming cold weather. What have you done in the past? What has worked and what needs improvement? Do you have a list of activities needing too be done when heavy snow and/or ice hit the region? Have you identified the areas in and around the facility that will need the most maintenance? Parking lots, sidewalks, entrances, and landscaping areas will all need attention. Has a contract been negotiated for snow and ice removal with local service professionals? It's not too early to have these items set up. Waiting to react to the first weather event will hurt business, cost additional dollars, and potentially create a safety situation. Get prepared now. For further discussions and learning, I recommend registering and attending the next Peer to Partner call concerning "Preparing for Winter" on Friday, August 15th at 1:00 PM, CST. If you have any comments, let me know.

Dover and out!
