There’s plenty you can be “ready” for. The first day of school, the holidays, a job interview, a new born baby – the list goes on. It’s good to be ready – and your local SERVPRO Franchise Professionals want you to be “ready for whatever happens” in the new year. Make a resolution to help protect you and your business. Resolve to be READY in 2016.
Be Prepared. The Power of a Plan
Being ready is about planning and preparation. Both are key when disaster strikes. Did you know up to 50 percent of businesses that suffer a disaster may never reopen? It’s true. Among the businesses that do survive a disaster, the overwhelming majority put an emergency preparedness plan in place. The lesson? No one ever plans on a disaster – but everyone can prepare for one.
Preparation is the most important element to make it through any size disaster – from a small water leak to a large fire or area flood. A plan can minimize many of the risks business owners face in the event of a disaster – including inactivity and difficulty getting back into the building. There is a smart investment to protect all types of businesses from all sorts of disasters. Enter the SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile (ERP).
What is the Emergency READY Profile?
It’s a comprehensive document with only the critical information needed about your business in the event of an emergency. The ERP provides facility details from emergency contacts and priority areas to shut-off valve locations. It also includes a guide to help you get back into your building after a disaster.
The Emergency READY Profile Advantage
At its core, the Emergency READY Profile puts an immediate plan of action in place for your facility to minimize business interruption in the event of an emergency. Business owners also get a local SERVPRO® Franchise Professional to serve as their specialized disaster mitigation and restoration provider.
A no-cost assessment of your facility, the ERP requires only a little time for a great overall value – including the power to potentially save you time, money and resources in the future. Business owners can also download the free SERVPRO® READY App to store all the information electronically and access it using a mobile device – making help just a few clicks away.
