Disaster and Emergency Preparedness
Convenience stores are beacons in their communities, providing much-needed food and fuel to first responders and residents before, during and after an emergency or disaster.
The health and safety of the convenience retail community is our highest priority. The NACS team is actively monitoring the coronavirus situation, keeping in touch with local, state and federal agencies, health experts, employment law firms, event venue partners, retailers and suppliers as conditions evolve.
The NACS Convenience Store Emergency Planning and Job Aids are customizable and include a plan evaluation document and Job Aids of tasks and checklists for specific functions that store employees perform during emergency and disaster planning and recovery. The Job Aids can also be used as on-boarding training, refresher training or immediate training when emergency conditions approach.
