TIPS TO PROTECT YOUR SMALL BUSINESS

Businesses that have sustained damage as a result of demonstrations should document damages by:

✅ Taking photos.

✅ Obtaining a police report through the Philadelphia Police Department by calling 911.

✅ Reporting damage to your insurance company.

✅ Saving camera footage.

Business owners should call 9-1-1 to report any suspicious or criminal activity. All property owners are responsible for securing exposed storefronts with existing damage.

Contact the Commerce Department’s Office of Business Services at 215-683-2100 or business@phila.gov for more information about:

· Street closures, which continue to be enforced in and around Center City.

· Changes to SEPTA routes and other transportation issues.

· Support for businesses affected by vandalism.

· Interest in volunteering or supporting business and corridor clean-up efforts.

· A list of contractors for help repairing damages to your business.

While non-essential businesses remain closed under Philadelphia’s Stay at Home Order, business owners can still take steps to keep their businesses safe. Please be sure to review your security protocols.
