Standing Stone Brewing honored for emergency prep

 Posted: 12:10 PM March 21, 2014

Standing Stone Brewing Co. has been designated an emergency prepared business by Ashland Fire & Rescue's Community Emergency Response Team.

At workshops taught by the team, Standing Stone employees and owners learned about planning for disaster and creating a safe environment for themselves and patrons, a CERT news release said.

The business, which had retrofitted its building for seismic activity and purchased generators in case of a power outage, instituted digital scheduling and employee contact procedures, took video of its property to create a record that would help it identify damage and make repairs, and changed brewing operations to make 420 gallons of clean water immediately available in a disaster such as a flood.

Standing Stone is the first Ashland business to earn the designation, which was presented at an award ceremony Wednesday, officials said.
