Disaster Planning for Businesses in the Downriver and Monroe County Areas
According to industry research, as many as 50% of businesses may never recover if faced with a disaster. Of those that do survive this traumatic event, the majority of them had some sort of disaster or preparedness plan in place in case of such a disaster.
Having some sort of disaster plan in place makes it possible for businesses to start picking up the pieces immediately following a loss, minimizing business interruption and getting them back on their feet faster.
Did you know that SERVPRO can help?
What many people may not know is that SERVPRO of Carleton/Maybee offers a complementary Emergency READY Profile, which is SERVPRO’s answer to an emergency preparedness plan for local area businesses. By developing a SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile (ERP), you will minimize the extent of damage from the water or fire, and also minimize the amount of time your business is interrupted.
So what is an ERP?
An ERP is a concise document that contains critical information in the event of an emergency. Water and gas shut off valves are located and labeled, priority areas and priority contact information is listed, the closest fire hook up is located and even your local SERVPRO franchise professional is listed in order to start mitigation without delay. Pictures and detailed descriptions are included as well, making it easy for even the newest of staff members to know where these locations are.
Don’t know where your physical copy is? SERVPRO has that taken care of too! There is now an app where you can find all of this information, and when you get your physical copy, your SERVPRO professional will also email you a link with your individual sign on instructions so you have 24/7 access to the online version and can even submit a loss.
If you have questions about an Emergency READY Profile, or would like to have an ERP done for your business, please call SERVPRO of Carleton/Maybee at (734) 299-7006.
